Wife, Shannon's love for food trucks combined with her husband Romaen's amazing ability to make any meal seem gourmet lead them to hope of one day having a business of their own to share this. After years of planning, dreaming and using all their friends and family as taste testers they took a giant leap and purchased a food trailer to make it all a reality. We aspire for everyone who has our food to feel the love and care that went into our creations and to leave feeling like they have shared a delicious meal with friends.

They also work to encourage and support the microbial and fungal life in their soil by using the most minimal till practices possible and incorporating things like biochar and spent mushroom blocks into the soil. They never use chemical pesticides or fertilizers, and instead rely on bacterial sprays and natural ingredients such as Kaolin clay to protect produce from bug damage. They specialize in growing Southern heirlooms and plants from around the world that grow well in our changing climate. For example, they grow Appalachian heirloom green beans, which they describe as “the best you’ll ever eat”. They also grow sour leaf, known as gongura, which is “an absolutely delicious green with lemony flavor” from South East Asia.
