MEET THE HEARTS BEHIND THE MISSION
Russ and Vanessa first met in 2009, when Vanessa and her sister ran Sister's Cafe and Russ worked in federal crop insurance. Farmer John Vollmer, Russ's late father, introduced the two. Little did they know, the two would fall in love a few years later and become the ultimate "foodie" couple, bringing a true farm-to-table experience to Franklin County, NC. Now, Russ is a full-time farmer, who grows certified organic fruits and vegetables. Vanessa, once restaurant is open, will be a full-time chef and owner/operator, who sources her products locally & seasonally. Together, Russ & Vanessa, own Vollmer Farm & Rustic Roots. Through their shared passion for seasonal, sustainable and local food, the two are living out a dream that they can only be credited to their shared faith in God and a community that believes in supporting each other & local food. Please point your wheels in the direction of Bunn, NC and come taste for yourself what all the talk is about.
