New River Organic Growers is a farmers’ cooperative of the High Country, selling produce, meat, cheese and eggs. It was founded in 1998 to help farmers’ transition from tobacco. The organization has since grown into a large cooperative, selling local food to restaurants and retailers throughout the High Country and the Asheville area. NROG’s warehouse is located in Fleetwood.
