Hickory Nut Gap Farm Cured Meats












Hickory Nut Gap Farm is owned and operated by the children of James and Elspeth Clarke, whose forebears started a farmers' cooperative in Fairview, NC, in the 1920s. This revolutionary "Farmers' Federation" gave western NC farmers more control over the marketing of their products and kept more profits local. The family now keeps this community spirit alive as Hickory Nut Gap Farm experiences a renaissance.
