Help Us Grow Opportunities for WV Farmers.
Sign Up for Our WV Farm Producer Survey

We need to hear from you. We are examing farmers’ interest in creating regional Food Hubs in West Virginia. With information you provide on your food production and interest in participating in a Hub, we will be able to create these Food Hubs and open new markets for our collective food production.

Please register to receive a survey at We will send you the producer survey in the next few weeks. The survey will give you the opportunity to tell us what your production challenges and opportunities are. At the end of the survey, make sure you include your mailing address (unless you want to remain anonymous) and you will receive a $10 Gift Card as a Thank You for your participation.

What is a Food Hub?

Food Hub DiagramWith a Food Hub, we aggregate food products and deliver it to large purchaser like schools, hospitals and restaurants. Food Hubs can address many of the challenges that West Virginia producers face and can provide more sales outlets to new and existing farms. We believe that the absence of regional local food hubs is a major barrier to agricultural growth in West Virginia.

Who is Compiling this Information?

The New Appalachian Farm and Research Center (NAFRC) along with WV stakeholders including West Virginia Department of Agriculture, WVU Extension, WVU Extension Small Farms Center, the West Virginia Food and Farm Coalition, the Benedum Foundation, and Downstream Strategies are partnering to complete this project.
