Shane has been working for several years to expand his farm with lots of love and support from Kathy and his family.   It’s happening and so happy he was recognized for his efforts.  Thanks to Connie Sturgill with the NRCS for recognizing and making the nomination and especially glad she was there to represent with him.

Grow Appalachia is happy to have Shane continue to work with the Grow Appalachia program and hoping to expand that work.

Angie Mullins, Breaking Beans Fella for Community Farm Alliance did a story that you will enjoy.
