Bear Lake Reserve

Thank you for visiting us to pre-buy provisions for your upcoming vacation. Vacationer Supported Agriculture provisions are supplied by local farmers in partnership with NC State University and local community organizations.

These hyperlocal provisions are being prepared by Lisa McBride who aggregates products from a network of small farmers. The provisions are made available for pickup on Friday afternoons at a convenient location near your vacation rental.  “Produce bags” contain a little more than 10 pounds of fresh produce, fruit and herbs.  This typically amounts to 12 servings of fruit and vegetables for the week.  We will reach out to you a few days before your vacation to share what’s in season in participating farms so you know which items you can expect in your bag.

“Happy hen eggs” are available by the dozen; and you can also order “Farm fresh flowers”.  

This project aims to support the livelihoods of small farmers and fulfill vacationers’ desire for fresh local foods. Every aspect of the P1provisions experience is designed to facilitate a mutually-beneficial partnership between discerning vacationers and local foods producers.  Please look at our terms and policies for details.

Summer 2022 sales begin March 15, 2022. Please come back and visit us then!
