History of Fruits of Labor:
The vision all started with entrepreneur Tammy Jordan's dream at age five to have a show farm. She was formally educated in science, worked for over a decade in agricultural research with USDA, while growing Fruits of Labor simultaneously for over a decade. It is a corporation designed to marry her passion for agriculture and her love of the culinary industry, by growing much of the food for weddings and corporate events. Her and the staff at Fruits of Labor have truly experienced the fullness of that vision. Fruits of Labor Corporate Headquarters is located in Greenbrier County, Dawson, WV.
The Future of Fruits of Labor:
It is with great excitement to see an added vision for the training center, which is specifically designed for those wishing to enhance their knowledge of the farm-to-table movement. However, the greatest joy rests in God opening the door to offer retreats to renew the soul. This process has been four years in the making of intense research, waiting, joining with others, and finally a huge step in faith. It is amazing to watch God unfold this dream, provide, and grow this new vision with each passing day! Fruits of Labor Training and Retreat Center is located on 218 beautiful acres in Spring Dale, WV.
Fruits of Labor Agricultural Mission:
Develop a sustainable agricultural model to inspire small Appalachian farms to realize a profit in food production, while retaining the environmental integrity of the land for future generations.
Fruits of Labor Culinary Mission:
Develop an advanced culinary training facility for chefs and students in culinary programs where they will experience the complete cycle of food production (selection, planting, care, harvest, storage, and consumption) to then be challenged to develop recipes using seasonal produce from the farm. The training is an entrenchment into the philosophy of buying local and how as a chef, they can incorporate local foods into their future menus.
Fruits of Labor Retreat Center:
The Retreat Center surrounds the mind, body, and spirit with a peaceful, natural environment for visitors to come rest, restore, renew, play, and also participate in daily activities on the farm if desired. Walking trails, gardens, and other recreational activities will be available. The Retreat Center has accommodations that are serene and welcoming to guests. Private meditation areas and beautiful vistas enhance the experience.
