Mission

Now this is where we get really serious about food!  Did you know the average age of our farmers in Northeast Tennessee is 58? Did you know that a 2009 CDC study shows that 71% of adults in Greene Co, TN (where we live) reported eating FEW fruits and vegetables?  We want to lower the average age of farmers and increase the number fruit and veggie eaters!  Help us do this by clicking here!
