The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to help meet the need for increased cold storage capacity that is accessible to limited resource growers in the northwestern region of North Carolina. Funds for this project will be used to develop a business plan and cover design fees for two satellite cold storage facilities that will use landfill methane gas as a power source. The facilities, located in Watauga and Wilkes counties, will assist area growers with marketing, adding value to crops and expanding produce lines.
