Rose Creek Farms

The Tylers run a family farm called Rose Creek Farms in Selmer, TN, that services several restaurants with fresh produce at wholesale costs. Those accounts froze as the restaurants shut down in Spring 2020 as the COVID-19 crisis hit, threatening the livelihood of the Tylers and their employees. The Tylers signed up for Communities Unlimited’s Farm to Food Pantry Project and sold their excess produce to CU, which donated the food to local food pantries. The solution not only helped those in need of food, but it also allowed the Tylers to keep their employees and to continue farming.
