Appalachian Seed Swap A Success

The 3rd Annual Appalachian Seed Swap was held earlier this spring in Pikeville, KY. A celebration of Appalachia’s unique agricultural heritage, the Seed Swap brought folks together from throughout the region to trade heirloom seeds and to learn more in general about planting, harvesting and processing those home grown fruits and veggies into family foods and salable products. A highlight was the maiden voyage of Kentucky State University’s mobile canning unit in which you can do everything from can beans to cook down sorghum molasses. Lets hope the KSU folks will get that trailer on the road as those seeds from the swap will soon have grown into produce ready for processing.
