Agriculture meeting draws large crowd

September 21, 2012

A dinner meeting last night at Seneca High School promoted agriculture as an important segment of the Oconee County economy and featured discussion as to how to increase production and sales. Seneca’s FFA instructor Christina Alexander helped host the meeting and Tokeena farmer Gwen McPhail was one of its leading organizers. Alexander says the turn out was impressive. Among the speakers was attorney Paul Cain, who talked about the law and how it can help local farmers produce more and sell locally. Some ideas tossed around were the need for a countywide farmers market and a cannery.
