AFFN IN THE MEDIA AND IN PUBLIC
2023 has been a big year for developing awareness around Appalachian Foothills Fruits and Nuts and the important work of collecting, cataloguing, and preserving the Fruit and Nut Heritage of the Eastern United States.
AFFN on the Radio
- WUTC’s “Scenic Roots” hosted by Ray Bassett

Homestead Fruits in Local Eateries
Fruit from AFFN has been featured by “Ruddle’s Bread and Book”, “Cafe Roma” and by “True at BHB” in Cleveland, Tennessee.
Ken Chance of AFFN met Richard Sneed, Principal Chief of the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Nation to articulate the Preservation Mission of the Orchard. We discussed sharing fruits and nuts from the Orchard with the Eastern Band, and how we might learn and popularize Native uses and folkways for these delicious fruits and nuts.
