CAFE was founded in 2011 through the combined efforts of Lance Howard, Elian Evans and the input from current member farms. Recognizing and responding to needs of community members and small business owners, we combine the efforts of individual growers to market their produce.


Clemson Area Food Exchange (CAFE) is a cooperative group of small farms and gardeners located around the Clemson area. Each grower farms his/her land using strict standards to ensure that everything produced is chemical-free. All member farms are dedicated to supplying their customers with the freshest and highest quality vegetables, herbs, mill products, dairy, eggs, meats, fruits, flowers, and transplants. Participating farms vary in size and specialty, but all carry the common thread of dedication to community, environment, health and education.
