Inquiring mind: Did Adair County ever have a canning plant?

Maury Lewis writes:
I was watching RFDTV and they were in a little county in Georgia called Union County. The population there was 22,267 in 2010.

This little county has a large farmers market and a canning plant that they say generates a million dollars a year for the county.

I don't know how it operates but it looks like people can come in and use the plant to do their canning and they have people who are employees that help them. Or they will do your canning for you for a price.

Has Adair County ever had a canning plant that the public could use to do their canning? - melewi

Thanks, Maury Lewis - It looks like you are on to something for the future, and I think some knowledgeable Adair Countians can give an answer to you about similar canning facilities in Columbia's past. - EW
