Why Appalachia


Where we choose to farm is as intentional as how.


Eastern Kentucky is a region of hard work, tenacity, and ingenuity. The East Kentucky workforce is rooted in faith and grit. It will persevere.

AppHarvest has partnered with the University of Pikeville and Shelby Valley High School in the region to develop and deploy AgTech classes. Together we are building an AgTech ecosystem in Appalachia. 

Appalachia is leading the Farming Now movement.
