So excited to be working with and speaking about land access and orchards. As a chef we should know the work behind getting those varieties of apples to stone fruit to your restaurant.
Black Orchard is pioneering project aimed to address the under representation of Black and BIPOC individuals in the field of agriculture, particularly orchards. The focus will be on education, land access and community.
We are actively collecting data on a black-owned orchards and farms across the United States to understand the landscape and identify area for intervention and support.
If you are or know of a BIPOC orchard farmer please contact us
