What comes to mind when you think of Agriculture in the Mountains? Many people immediately form images in their minds of working long hours in small garden plots filled with vegetables ready for canning. Some would recall taking fresh picked apples to market on a crisp September morning. Others may think of the old hayloft where the many bales of hay were “put up” during the hot summer months in preparation for the long winter ahead. Still others would recall memories of tobacco patches and cornfields. No matter what you think of when you recall you favorite memory, most would agree that agriculture has played an important role in Floyd County ’s past and will continue to play a large role in our future.
