Our Story

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


Our proprietor and executive chef is Iona Jones, specializes in locally sourced food creations, 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 the culinary arts 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 Supper Club was birthed from a desire to host regular fine-dining Dinner Party events on site in our beautiful garden venue. 

Sweetwater Kitchen grows many of its own herbs, flowers, fruits, berries, and veggies in a small kitchen garden located on site. As many ingredients as seasonally available are sourced through local organic farmers.  

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