Fruit Processing Facility

Organization: Double B Farms
Project Coordinator: Clyde Brown
Location: Fallston, Lincoln County, NC
This project will receive $30,000 to develop a processing facility that will allow fifteen blackberry farmers to add value to the otherwise unmarketable berries, and sell them to a ready market of wine producers, jam and jelly companies, as well as open the door to other berry types and farmers in the area who wish to capitalize on second quality fruits.
