Season's Harvest!

Things are sure brewing here in Montgomery North Carolina! The great thing is that it is the time of year to start canning your bountiful harvest!

Are you interested in learning the basics of water-bath canning? If so you need to come to our canning class being held on June 30th.  This will be a hands on training where you will learn the basics of canning tomatoes that you will be able to take home with you. The class will be held from 1pm to 4pm at the NC Cooperative Extension office in Troy. The registration deadline is June 27th with a fee of $10.00. For more information please contact Molly Alexi or Hayley Napier at (910) 576-6011.

We will also have a Pressure Cooker test day July 14th at the Troy Farmers' Market (417 N. Main St, Troy, NC).

There are other festivities going on at the markets as well.
July 7th at the Troy Farmers' Market Montgomery Cooperative Extension will be showcasing Dezern Farms Blackberries, so be sure to stop by 3-6pm for some delicious foods!
