Ed moved to Western North Carolina in 2009 after earning degrees in agriculture and rural sociology 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 nonprofit community radio station AshevilleFM. He grew up around farms but learned more 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 and we are Certified Naturally Grown. We rely on a small crew paid a living wage planting, weeding, picking, washing, and packing. Now in our fourth growing season 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, the Flat Rock Farmer’s Market, and the Polk County Winter Market.
