What People Are Saying

We use locally sourced food to employ and empower Little Rock, AR communities

Why We Exist

Incubated by Heifer International's USA Country Programs. Our CSA trains farmers in sustainable agriculture, creates infrastructure, and designs innovative local food markets. We’re sparking a renaissance of local food and keeping our food dollars in Little Rock, AR economies, bettering the lives of farmers and consumers alike.

We pride ourselves on working with a diverse group of local producers. Although not all of those producers are certified organic, we are working towards having a unified standard of sustainable production that promotes healthy food, respect for the land and strong rural communities. As part of our commitment to that goal, we provide regular trainings and resources to assist farmers in transitioning to organic agriculture.
