Building a New Food Future Together

Let's create the change we want to see in the world.  With your support, we can redefine how local food is done.

We are a co-op of farmers who both love growing & cooking.  We've all been inspired by our experiences traveling all over the world, and want to bring that back with us to Eastern NC.  We recognize we are in a global world, but when it comes to food, local matters.  Flavor, freshness, environmental concerns and food security - it's all important to us.
