Avery

The town of Avery was designated the Tomato Capital of NorthEast Texas in 1939 and maintained that title for almost 6 decades.  The Tomato Shed located at the Texas and Pacific Railroad depot in Avery was once known for shipping 200 rail cars full of tomatoes out to various distribution centers around the United States, providing over a million dollars to the Red River County economy!  The tomato shed is now gone, but you‚ find a quaint friendly trail town which is home to a new kind of attraction‚ the first ever NETT Hostel, which is operated by the Avery Community Volunteer Fire Department.  Starting at 9am the Avery VFD will have a trail maintenance clean-up day and hostel open house.  Many hands make light work‚ if trail clean up is finished quickly you can probably talk Avery VFD Chief Gary Tucek into a gravel grind bike ride!  Bring your work gloves, sturdy boots, hat, long pants, bug repellant, and of course your hiking boots or mountain/gravel bike!
