Nuts & Buds, a family-owned business and retail and online store for G. Ryan Howell Farms, celebrated a successful grand reopening at their new location on April 20, 2023. The ribbon-cutting ceremony and subsequent weekend-long festivities drew in a large crowd of excited customers, vendors and supporters.

The event was a culmination of a journey that started when Nuts & Buds was displaced from its previous location. The new location, a beautiful and spacious storefront, was the result of the hard work and dedication of the Nuts & Buds team: Sandy, Ryan, Will, David and Robert, noted the Currituck Chamber of Commerce.

During the ribbon-cutting ceremony, owner Ryan Howell expressed his gratitude towards the community and customers for their support. “We couldn’t have done this without you all. Your support means everything to us.”
