The Acornucopia Project's mission is to develop perennial based agriculture as an economically viable, environmentally beneficial, and socially dignified human endeavor. Regional hubs of worker owned cooperatives will increase the demand for highly nutritious tree products incentifying farmers and landowners to transition their pastures and croplands into native tree orchards, bringing balance to our checkbooks, our environment, and our diets,
As a landowner you cast an influential vote on the state of our environment. We are looking for land owners who want to partner with this ground breaking project. Please click here 3 times and say, "There is no place like home."

Acornucopia is the proud sponsor of the West Virginia Nut Festival celebrating the diversity of native nuts that grow on our richly textured landscape. Acorns, hickories, walnuts hazelnuts litter the ground in the fall and have fed countless generations who have gathered them up to eat. So gather yee up some nuts, bring em, and see what can be done with them.
The festival will be located outside of Union, WV on the newly planted 40 acre nut orchard a top Swopes Knobs. The site has a beautiful vista that looks over "a hundred miles". Featured will be dehulling and nut cracking demos, nut tastings, delicious foods made from native nuts, nut judging, tour of the orchard, walnut hull tattooing, workshops, nut trees for sale, squirrel dog contest, games and prizes.

Concentricity- Acornucopia is finding overlap with many artisans. Samples of oils, nuts, flour and by products are being given out to innovative chefs, bakers, skin care alchemists, brewers, miso makers, vegan cheese dervishes, horticulturalists, chemists, tea blenders, tinkerers, and engineers.
