Our Story

Rural Resources is All About Local Food!

Based in the agricultural heartland of rural Appalachian East Tennessee, we work to connect local farms and food with families.

Our region has traditionally been one of small scale farms where nearly every family milked a cow, kept some chickens, and grew a garden. In recent generations, we've seen a growing disconnect between our families and the food we eat. The results are an aging farming population and a new culture of diet-related health illnesses including obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and more.

We want to change all that! Using our community farm as home base, we want to help you experience where your food comes from: growing it, cooking it, and eating it. We involve youth in the experience and connect them to work with local growers to promote real, nutritious food to families all around our hometown of Greeneville, TN and beyond.
