Meet Cynthia Sharpe and Dwain Swing! Together they run OakMoon Farm & Creamery in Bakersville, North Carolina. With their TCRF grant, through Western AgOptions, they increased the agri-tourism aspect of their farm. Cynthia and Dwain offered cheese-making and goat-husbandry workshops that draw participants from all over the United States. Learn about their goats, what it takes to start a goat farm, and how one project can change an entire local community.

The Tobacco Communities Reinvestment Fund (TCRF) assists farmers in developing new sources of agricultural income through provision of cost-share grants. This story is part of a series documenting innovative farmers throughout the state of North Carolina. This program is made possible with support from the North Carolina Tobacco Trust Fund Commission.
