The NC High Country is teaming up with local food entrepreneurs who are building a vibrant food scene while paying tribute to our rich, Appalachian Mountain food heritage. In recognizing this, the Appalachian Regional Commission, the Towns of Boone and Blowing Rock, and the Watauga County TDA hired Destination by Design to create a digital & print map that would guide visitors to all the great places of our area. So we developed the Neck of the Woods flavor trail of the NC High Country.
Similar to the Bon Appetit Appalachia food map we created for the entire Appalachian region, the Neck of the Woods flavor trail focuses on only 7-counties and incorporates local restaurants, farms, markets and wineries/breweries to bring visitors and locals to the best local flavor the High Country has to offer.
The project was recently recognized and published in WNC Magazine; check out the article here: (http://wncmagazine.com/feature/high_country_flavor)
