What a great gift for Fickle Creek Farm, my book “Farm Fresh North Carolina,” and the Piedmont Farm Tour. The state’s former (as of June) tourism marketing agency, Charlotte-based LKM, commissioned a video about agritourism in general and the book specifically. It was shot by expert videographer Tim Hass and is now posted at www.visitnc.com. The YouTube version is below.
We shot it at Fickle Creek in Efland, and farmers Ben Bergmann and Noah Ranells got the star treatment. Actually, their animals shared top billing. In fact, when we were shooting, the cows and sheep were getting a little too vocal, probably trying to steal the limelight. Tim shot in mid-April, first on a weekday and then he returned on the Sunday of the Piedmont Farm Tour, so that’s included as well, which is a nice gift for farm tour sponsor Carolina Farm Stewardship Association.
