Ed moved to Western North Carolina in 2009 after earning degrees in agriculture, rural sociology, and information science from the University of Wisconsin. He worked on organic farms through high school and college and in public libraries for 20 years. His love of eating fresh local food in season drives our farming.
You can find KP in Asheville during the week managing Asheville’s nonprofit community radio station 103.3 AshevilleFM. He grew up around farms and learned about management, business, and marketing through a career in food cooperatives, worker collectives, and public radio. For KP, the thread between local food and grassroots radio is building community power over corporate control.
We are committed to providing fresh, local food grown according to organic standards that we label as Certified Naturally Grown. Our crew of 4-5 additional employees are paid a living wage planting, weeding, picking, washing, and packing. Now in our fifth year of providing CSA farm shares, we take farm share sign-ups annually in January, or you can also find us at the Hendersonville Farmer’s Market and the Polk County Winter Market.
