There’s something about being outdoors. Whether you are at work or play, breathing in fresh air and taking in the warmth of the sun is an experience that cannot be duplicated. Preservation efforts here in Cabarrus County mean we can all continue to enjoy those opportunities.
I was a Boy Scout (Troop 173, Harrisburg) as a young man. My favorite times during that period were the camping trips. We learned skills that we would use the rest of our lives. We formed friendships that would carry us for years to come, and we learned an appreciation for nature and the world around us.
That appreciation was the inspiration for this month’s issue, but with a tourism twist. This month, we’ll visit Almond Farm. Located on Highway 601 in Concord, this farm not only provides a bounty of fresh produce but also practices agritourism. Not familiar with the term? Read on. In addition, The Farm at Brusharbor and The Farmstead provide unique locations for weddings, bah mitzvahs or any special occasion you can think of, right there on the farm. Finally, the Rocky River Blueway and the Carolina Thread Trail bring ecotourism to Cabarrus County. Read about communities that are embracing the project.
On a separate note, I would like to announce that Cabarrus Magazine, Memories FM (98.3) and WSAT AM (1080) have come together to now be represented by CabCo Media Group. We are so excited about this strategic partnership! If your business wants to target Cabarrus County, now you can come to one place and do so through print, radio and digital media at one price! For more information on how we can help, call us today at 704-782-2353.
Speaking of growth, wait until you see September’s issue! Until next month!
