Food & Farm Fusion

There has been an widening gap in our food system.

The mass of consumers are looking for ready to eat food, while farmers sell ingredients at markets open only a few hours a week.

This has farmers reaching a tiny part of the market, for too little return.

But the process of rebuilding our food system is underway, and the opportunity for farmers to thrive is as ripe as it’s ever been.

Homesteaders Cait Nolan and Joe Fox of Little x Litte farm in Ernul, NC apply the farm fusion framework in creating the Craven Local Food Market, where they turn their production into a weekly meal prep service with a jar exchange.

The Farm Fusion framework has you meet people where they want to be met, with products they crave.

Reach mass markets, while getting the price you want for the things that you grow.
