At Hindman Settlement School, we are extremely excited to get back to our roots that are deeply embedded on the banks of Troublesome and expand our Foodways program.

Eastern Kentucky isn’t traditionally known for large scale agriculture, but historically for self-sustaining homesteads. Recently, central Appalachia has seen a resurgence of mountain agriculture fueled by the local food movement. This resurgence brings a multitude of opportunities for producers, food crafters, and entrepreneurs. Hindman Settlement School is devoted in supporting our local food system through our Grow Appalachia program, the Knott County Farmers Market, The Cannery, and The Farm.
