Title: Chef and Farmer
Location: Rock Cave, WV
Establishment: Fish Hawk Acres

Why he's a big deal: His CSA, Fish Hawk Acres, includes 14 different farms produce and meals prepared by Dale in his New Appalachian style (check out the Rustic Summer Tomato and Zucchini Tart for instance). He helped launch a nonprofit called "The Collaborative for the 21st Century Appalachia" to showcase Appalachian cuisine and to connect chefs, farmers and Classrooms.
