Additional Information: In our rural East Tennessee farming communities, the very places where crops are grown to feed the world, many face food insecurity and the issues associated with it. Century Harvest Farms Foundation grew out of the desire to fill that gap. After almost a decade of sustainable farming and producing grass-fed beef, owner of Century Harvest Farms, Chris Burger, wanted to share the farm with his community. In 2017, Chris met then homeless service coordinator, Jen Patterson, and they shared the belief that all individuals and families deserve access to safe, healthy, and nutritious food. Upon result, they piloted a small-scale program that taught agricultural skills and gave participants access to fresh produce. After piloting the program, they knew that the needs of the community were far greater than just food. During this time, they decided to expand past the program to create Century Harvest Farms Foundation that is focused on empowering and engaging with people from all backgrounds to improve the health and wellness of our rural East Tennessee communities through work centered programming and access to fresh produce.
