Under the umbrella of WNC rural enterprises, municipalities of all sizes serve as city centers for an assortment of business ventures that exist in each community: food, agriculture, value added products, hardware stores, independent grocery stores, restaurants, small engine repair and hundreds of other businesses that make important contributions and uniquely define each rural community. At the core, agriculture plays an important role in rural economic development; it binds communities together in agreement, to the land and to the cultural heritage. For this reason, in its classes, Mountain BizWorks provides additional information for agricultural businesses, and encourages cross-pollination between the many different business types in each community.
