Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture would like to recognize Julia McIntyre from Trebuchet Hill Farm as the recipient of the 2020 Woman in Agriculture Award. While COVID restrictions prevented the award to be made at the 65th Annual Farm City Banquet, Julia received a farm visit by staff and board members of Blue Ridge Women in Ag to present her with the award.

Julia has made significant and important contributions to agricultural production and local food access in Watauga County. As owner/operator of Trebuchet Hill Farm, she has demonstrated that flexibility, innovation, and adaptation can lead to success for small farm start-ups in the High Country. She has modeled opportunities for value-added production, season extension, and agritourism as methods of generating farm income and growing a successful farm business.

In addition to her efforts as a farmer, she has contributed in significant ways to the promotion of farmers’ markets and local food outlets. Trebuchet Hill actively sells through and promotes the High Country Food Hub. Facing challenges entering local markets, she worked with Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture and other growers to start the King Street Farmers’ Market, a weekday market in downtown Boone. Julia worked to expand the diversity of the Watauga County Farmers Market offerings through delicious value-added products, where Trebuchet Hill is a vendor. She also previously managed the Blowing Rock Farmers’ Market. And, she’s operated an engaging mobile farm stand throughout Watauga County.

Join us in congratulating Julia for this well-deserved honor and thanking her for her many contributions!
