Piedmont Grown is a certification program that wants to make sure that farm products grown, raised, and made in the Piedmont Region are clearly identified and promoted everywhere you buy food and farm fresh products. Our Mission is to promote local food systems through the certification of food and farm products grown or raised in 37 counties in the North Carolina Piedmont Region. We want to link consumers to local farm fresh foods, build local markets for farmers and food entrepreneurs, and grow healthy and prosperous communities.
The Piedmont Grown certification program is managed by Piedmont Grown NC Inc, a fully incorporated organization with a Board of Directors that meets regularly.
As part of our annual certification program, we carefully review all participants to maintain the integrity of our logo and keep your trust. When businesses sign a license agreement each year, they agree to use the logo and brand to represent food and farm products grown, raised, and made by a certified Piedmont farms and businesses.
