Living Better. Locally
Living better. Locally: its our tag line. It’s also what drives our commitment to propel our mission to transition Appalachia to a more resilient economy and a healthier population by supporting local agriculture, exploring new economic opportunities and connecting people to healthy food. We boost local economies by creating jobs in farming and agriculture. We impact health and wellness by providing nutritious food to families.
Since 1995, we have been working in Central Appalachia, providing hope and making a difference for the people who call this region home. What began as opportunities for struggling tobacco farmers to grow fruits and vegetables has become lasting solutions to regional challenges that impact workforce development, food access, health and wellness.

With a focus on creating jobs in farming and agriculture and addressing food insecurity, we collaborate with regional partners to bring necessary resources back to the communities we serve. Our work tackles challenges with education, empowerment and encouragement. Learn More
