ASAP Connections

Local Food. Strong Farms. Healthy Communities

How will I benefit from participating in the program?


ASAP’s recent research shows that the demand for locally grown farm products in the region is at an all-time high. Increasingly more consumers are choosing to buy locally grown farm products because they want to know where their food comes from and who grew it. Our research also shows that local food is an important consideration for area consumers when choosing a grocer or restaurant. Southern Appalachian residents believe that locally produced foods offer higher quality and are worth the extra cost. As a retail partner in the Appalachian Grown program, you will gain exposure for your food-related business. Area communities support local farms and the businesses that sell local farm products.
