Our Story

Sweetwater Kitchen is located in the pastoral Cove Creek Valley of Watauga County, NC.

Our proprietor is Iona Jones, who specializes in locally sourced cooking ~ highlighting the neighboring farms and farmers who grow and tend the organic produce and free-range meats that make your meal exceptional!

Iona's passion for cooking and baking began in childhood, while helping her mother prepare for the Watauga County Farmer's Market where the family sold veggies, cheeses, and baked treats sourced from their organic homestead garden and dairy goat farm located on the edges of Ashe County.

As a private chef, Iona has continued to follow this passion for healthy and unique kitchen creations.

Sweetwater Kitchen grows many of our own herbs, flowers, fruits, berries, and veggies in a small kitchen garden located on site.

As many ingredients as possible are sourced through local organic farmers. Grains and spices are sourced from Bob's Red Mill, King Arthur Baking Co., Simply Organic Spice Co., and Mountain Rose Herbs.

Food coloring components and all natural and plant-based, such as beet root powder and berry juices.

Every Sweetwater Kitchen creation is artfully crafted and infused with love and laughter!

Sweetwater Kitchen is delighted to be a producer for the High Country Food Hub, a supplier for the BeetRoute Catering Company, 

 Wildwood Community Market, and Rooted on King Cafe. Our joy is providing tasty treats for our friends, family, and neighbors.
