Collards in Field Did you know North Carolina is the third leading producer of collards in the nation? Collards thrive in North Carolina and can easily be grown in a backyard garden! This makes North Carolina one of the best places to source collards directly from local producers, farmers’ markets, and restaurants. We are all aware that collards are delicious, but did you know that they are also packed full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants? The best way to preserve those essential nutrients is to buy fresh, local collards from local farms.

To celebrate these wonderful leafy greens, the North Carolina Local Food Council (NCLFC) has published a webpage discussing collards’ history, delicious recipes, and the best places to find collards in the state. Head over to NCLFC and discover our state’s green of choice! You can also find local farms, where collards are grown, at the Union County Local Foods website.
