"WNC Farm To Table is growing into a tremendous asset for farmers and buyers in the region. As a small farmer, the workload and time commitment can be daunting. WNC Farm To Table allows me to reach more customers without devoting a large amount of time to marketing so I can focus on producing. Selling at markets has always been the main source of income for small local farmers, but Lisa's program is opening up sales outlets we never would have had previously. WNC Farm To Table is making farming a financially viable business for me and other growers in our region. I hope you will support Lisa and all the producers as we endeavor to build a local food system that enriches our community."

"I met Lisa at Farm School at Southwestern Community College about two years ago and she has been absolutely paramount in helping get our farm business off the ground and running. This is our first year as a functioning farm and we never dreamt of being a supplier of lamb to one our local restaurants. Lisa is streamlining the process of bridging the gap between local farmers and consumers. She has made it possible for us, as a small growing farm, to focus on raising the livestock while providing us the opportunity to supply farm to table products to our local community. She has been nothing but extremely helpful and encouraging and we are excited to continue working with her as our farm grows."
