Faces of Farmers
Know who your food comes from
What does eating local really mean? It means getting to know the PEOPLE who are working hard to provide your meats, produce, and value-added products. It means scheduling a visit to a farm to gain even more understanding about your dinner.
It means knowing that your food does not just come from a farm, but from
people. People who are not just farmers but fathers, daughters, moms,
and sons working as a family in a community of friends.
Faces of Farmers is a project of The Highland Center created to help unite customers with producers in a whole new way. By telling our farmers' stories, it aims to help market farms in the Allegheny Highlands region of Virginia and West Virginia and help customers learn more about their food.
