Appalachian Foothills Fruits and Nuts:
An Orchard exploring our heritage and educating the next generation
Keeping the Appalachian Tradition of Homestead Fruit Growing Alive
We are a non-profit enterprise dedicated to discovering and popularizing fruit-bearing plants that can thrive in the homesteads in and about Appalachia. This leads us to focus on native species and ones that mark the historic homesteads that dot the region.
Appalachia is home to more self-sustaining, small farms per person than any other region of the United States. We exist to further this culture that is bound to nature and is founded on self-sufficiency.
We are established for promoting discovery, science and education.
