We love local food!
Southern Appalachian Family Farms (SAFF) is a dedicated group of vegetable farmers, fruit growers, beekeepers, beef ranchers, poultry producers, professional bakers, and enthusiastic gardeners.
We are passionate about building stable food and agriculture economies in the beautiful North Carolina counties of Clay, Cherokee, Graham, and Macon.
Our dream is to transform our little corner of southern Appalachia into a place where farmers and food producers can all thrive–a place where people enjoy what’s on their plates even more because they know where it came from.
You help this vision become a reality every time you shop at a weekly farmers’ market or attend one of our events. Whether you are a grower or an eater, please join us in creating a food community that celebrates the freshness, quality, and extraordinary taste of Eating Local.
