Yancey County (5.5-6 acres)
Corn, pumpkins, beans, potatoes, squash, tomatoes
Brothers, Michael and Josh Blevins, just started farming 5 ½ – 6 acres in Yancey County. Farming has been important to their family for generations – their parents still grow their own vegetables and help Michael and Josh on their new farm. The Blevins now specialize in cabbage, while also growing corn, pumpkins, beans, potatoes, squash, and tomatoes. In addition to farming, they run a construction business; raise hogs and chickens; and sell their and other local farm’s fruits and vegetables at their produce stand.
The Blevins also sell their produce at their stand just south of Micaville at 5060 Highway 80.
