Sustainable Family Farms in Western North Carolina

The existence of family farms guarantees the preservation of
green space within local communities.

Independent family farms also play a vital role in rural economies. In addition to providing jobs to local people, family farmers also help support small businesses by purchasing goods and services within their communities.

  • Purchase food directly from your local family farmer at a farmers market, at a farm stand, or through a food co-op or a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) system.
  • Ask the manager of your grocery store to supply foods produced at local family farms. Download “I care about where my food comes from!” - a notecard you can give to your store manager.
  • Donate money to Farm Aid – Since 1985, this non-profit organization has worked to support America's family farmers.
  • If you shop at a farmers market or buy directly from a farm, thank the farmer for providing you with such wholesome and delicious food. As long as farming is recognized as an important, rewarding profession, younger people will be encouraged to become farmers.

Classically-trained violinist and virtuoso fiddlers, sisters,  Laura Knight and Cindy Wallace light up the band's stage show with lively fiddle tunes as well as beautiful string arrangements on their slower numbers.

When it comes right down to it, we all want the same thing, right? To be given a chance, to be heard, to be loved. To connect with other humanoids on some level, however small, and find reason to believe that we're not as alone as we sometimes feel. To take our muse from the safety of the living room to stages far from home, to find our voice and sing our song . . .

OK, thus go the mental ramblings of an artist. Thanks to Mark Barreres and Grassroots Networking for turning dreams and ramblings into real results and even - dare we say it -  money. Yes, the "M" word. We in Wild Blue Yonder are not afraid to say that we appreciate being paid for our art, and Mark's "connect the dots" system is already making that happen for us. We haven't been affiliated very long, but already hits on our website are up and new connections are being made daily.

Thanks so much, Grassroots Networking, for linking us up in so many ways and so many places! We can't wait to see what the future holds, to grow our relationships and to tell more music biz people what great things you are doing. -
