Turnrow Appalachian Farm Collective was founded in 2018, by Sprouting Farms Corp, Refresh Appalachia, and a series of other partner local food and farming organizations across the state. Turnrow coordinates production planning, post-harvest handling, food safety, marketing, sales, and delivery for enterprises throughout West Virginia.
Turnrow’s purpose is to strengthen local food economies by providing producers access to more markets across the state and region. Central Appalachia is socioeconomically isolated and lacks a major population base. For local communities, growing the local food economy from a regional and collaborative perspective means stitching together communities and resources all along the value chain - farming supplies, cold storage, processing produce into consumer-ready products, vehicles for the delivery of products, a team to make all of those operations happen, and many more things along the way. Food hubs have emerged as critical players in building strong local and regional food systems. Turnrow offers a combination of services that help connect farmers with larger-volume wholesale markets, an online retail farmers’ market and with other collaborators operating food hubs and other logistical resources throughout the region.
