Tonoloway Farm

McDowell, VA

Low-interest bridge loan funded Jan. 2021

Tonoloway Farm is a forest farm located in the Appalachian Highlands of Virginia, where they produce maple, hickory, and black walnut syrup as a vital contributor to the local food economy. Owned and operated by wife and husband team, Lauren and Christoph Herby, the farm is located on 205 acres, where they also grow mushrooms and garlic. The farm is Virginia's only producer of black walnut syrup, and among just a handful of farms in the US that are producing syrup from trees other than maple. Tonoloway Farm received a 0% loan in January 2021 to help pay for the completion of an on-farm workshop for their syrup, mushroom and nut processing and storage.
