Alabama’s rural counties are the source of some of the state’s most distinctive products, from handcrafted, all-natural items for health and home to innovative technologies that are charting the future for business and industry.
“Rural Alabama is making a remarkable impression both at home and beyond our state’s borders,” said Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce.
“There is a strong commitment to quality, craftsmanship and creativity that runs through the work force in these towns and communities. There is also a sense of pride that is evident and impressive,” he added.
Brenda Tuck, rural development manager for the Alabama Department of Commerce, said the diverse mix of products originating from the state’s rural areas transmits a clear message about the capabilities found there.
