Quick Links to the Friends Drift Farm Website

Friends Drift Inn blog was launched in 2011 by Joyce Pinson with the aim of sharing recipes, gardening tips and real life in Appalachia. Written by Joyce Pinson a red hat wearing community advocate, the blog has evolved into many working pieces including regional newspaper and media, a platform for Appalachian agriculture and foodways, and most recently a working market farm in the heart of Kentucky’s coalfields. The blog is in the process of rebanding as “Friends Drift Inn Farm” to better reflect the mission of our journey.

Below is a list of key links on this site. However we hope you will visit our home page, Friends Drift Inn Farm.
