ASAP Local Food Strong Farms Healthy Communities

Comment. Share. Connect. Join ASAP in an ongoing conversation about local food FROM HERE in the Southern Appalachians.


From Here is a place to talk about and see the Southern Appalachian’s thriving local food movement in action. And thriving it is!

Western North Carolina is the leading local food region in the country, and ASAP is the reason behind this success. For the past 10 years, ASAP has created the conditions for farmers to experiment and create new products for new markets.

But, ASAP needs your support to ensure that we can continue to help local farms thrive, link farmers to markets and supporters, and build healthy communities through connections to local food. Please donate today to increase the region’s access to the freshest, healthiest, best-tasting food around.

And continue using this site to engage with the movement and share your local food stories, recipes, and adventures!
