Did you know that Caswell County is being highlighted across the world in a very positive light twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week (24/7)?

 

At the Chamber, our job is to help create an environment where businesses can thrive.  We work to be a catalyst for positive change in the community by working to meet the educating, networking and marketing needs of our business community.  Sometimes that means connecting small rural businesses with others in the area so that thoughts & ideas, inspiration, and concepts can be discussed and vetted. 

Half Time.  You may have heard the phrase, of course associated with ball games mostly.  Several years ago, a friend of mine suggested I read a book called Half Time, by Bob Buford, which was not about ball games at all.  It was about the concept that in the first half of our lives we are busy being successful... focused on ourselves, working our way up in life, saving money and accumulating stuff. 

 

It all began when her husband returned from the last of 5 Tours of Duty in Iraq.  Jennifer Hambright realized she needed to understand what her husband had been through in service to our nation so she could help him, herself and their marriage survive.

 

 

You may know them as Caswell Tire Company.  Since 1963 the establishment has been a steadfast location on Main Street in Yanceyville that beckons those with vehicle trouble to stop in.

 

 

Never before has ‘perseverance’ been such a necessity for all of us in Caswell as well as in our state, nation and worldwide as we all make our way through these COVID-19 times.

 

 

There is a small business in Yanceyville that has positively impacted many of our lives.  Helping us to look and feel more confident, polished, professional and even more pretty or handsome.

 

 

Here in Caswell County is a group of successful businessmen that have retired from their ‘real jobs’ and are now involved in farming...but not your typical row crop type of farming.  These individuals had connections with farms in Caswell and have returned here to farm the land and to build an organization to help out others that may be just getting their start with living off the land.

 

 

Maybe you are a fan of country music, maybe not.  Having grown up in this agriculture-based county, it was a part of life here, and being familiar with the music, it does often seem that it parallels our lives. 

 

 

In order to differentiate your farm from the nearly two million others, leveraging technology is a must.   In the current world of technology that we live, it is important to think about how you might begin to market your farm.

 

 

Lately there has been a term used repeatedly in the farming community across North Carolina… agritourism.  So just what is this?
