Our businesses support over 1000 jobs in food, forest products, fiber/textiles and wellness/health. Thousands of acres of farm and forests are in sustainable and regenerative cultivation.
Who We Are
Accelerating Appalachia is the first regenerative and just business accelerator program, established in 2013. We attract and incentivize farmers, growers, and agriculture-based businesses in the adoption of regenerative practices. We are committed to resilient regional production and manufacturing in food, fiber, and forest products. We give special consideration to farmers and businesses in the underserved regions of Central/Southern Appalachia and the rural south.
