Coggins Farm’s Connection to our Locally Grown Food in WNC

local food Asheville

Did you know that Coggins Farm has a deep connection with our current access to locally grown food in WNC?

Henry Allen Coggins, who owned the land in the early part of the 20th Century, was one of the founders of the Farmers Federation in 1920. His son, George, hosted the first of the current generation of tailgate farmers markets in 1980.

Over the past 25 years, Coggins Farm has been an incubator for several of our area’s current crop of successful organic growers.
