NC Farmers of the Foothills: A New Initiative for Producers & Consumers
The NC Farmers of the Foothills is a newly formed producer group looking to pool resources and market their goods to the community. An online market, NC Farmers of the Foothills, will list products available for consumers and wholesalers to purchase. A 6-week summer Community Supported Agriculture will start at the end of June. There are also other local food purchasing programs that the online market will serve. Farmer membership fee is $100 which allows you to have your products available to consumers 24/7.
The Foothills Food Hub is currently under construction. By summer, cooler storage will be available as well as a packing area. The space will be available to farmer members. The NC Farmers of the Foothills will stage the CSA at the Foothills Food Hub.
If you are looking to have more fresh local food in your diet, you can purchase a 6-week CSA share at NC Farmers of the Foothills. Both large and small produce boxes available.
