This means we are creating the groundwork for a diverse city-wide system of food enterprises that create significant yields of: 


fruit, berries, & nuts



chicken duck and rabbit products 


We aim for a city where all the Fresh Food we eat comes from Responsible Farm Systems right here where we live.

Providing fresh food in places of need

Creating Cooperative Structures and Sharing Networks

”We decided to get our CSA through Patchwork Urban Farms because they have a vision that is bigger than themselves. There are a lot of options for CSA shares in Asheville and we were looking for something that went beyond good, local & organic veg and we found that with PUF. I’m happy to support them and look forward to seeing their vision take root here in Asheville & beyond.”
