To connect the Old Appalachia's values, traditions, skills and products to the New Appalachia's markets through distribution, marketing, and education.
The food system we envision has a face and story and a connection to our region. It is fueled by the values for our land, our people and our economy.
We supply a diverse collection of local food system buyers with the bounty of our region's harvests. We are motivated by the economic opportunities created for the family-operated farms of Southern Appalachia that we get to work with, and by the stories we share along the way. Our retailers know us for our steadfast commitment to the quality and diversity of our products, and for our ability to get our grower's goods into their hands within one day of being picked. We also love working with chefs to help them maximize their local food use or assist in their farm-to-table events.
We assist our farmers in crafting their harvest with our production planning phase over the winter. The diversity of our markets range from specialty niche greens for fine restaurants to volume potatoes for institutional buyers. By working with each farm's inspirations and aspirations, we work to connect them to the right opportunities. Whether its through promoting Certified Organic chard from Fishel Organics of Ashe County, North Carolina, rabbit grown by Mountain Top Rabbitry, dairy products by Mountain Milk Producers, or baby carrots by Hoffman Heritage and Honeysuckle Farms, we are proud of the role we play in creating a region-wide food web .
