CANDLER, N.C. (WLOS) — Hundreds of people turned out for a spring festival in Candler on Saturday. Ross Farm held its third annual Spring Fling Festival, featuring plant sales, live music and even a mechanical bull. There were also food trucks and several vendors on site.
The family-owned farm has been a staple in the community for 50 years. It was formerly known as Jack Young Greenhouses.
"We have 22 greenhouses, we have house plants, annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs and the farm was established in 1972," Lauren Davis with Ross Farm told News 13. "So it's been nestled in these beautiful mountains for a very long time."
Ross Farm also holds a fall festival once a year as well as a holiday bazaar.
Appalachian Standard, their sister company, holds the largest portion of the North Carolina hemp market, which is about one-third of all state sales.
