Serving the Community

photo 1We donate produce and labor to The Community Lunch in Pittsboro. St.Bart’s provides a free lunch for anyone in the community to attend on Thursdays from noon to 1pm. This year, over 30% of our CSA shares are reserved for families with limited financial resources. Our CSA members and friends join us in subsidizing shares for those families. We donate extra produce to our local food bank, CORA. Throughout the year we give tours to various school groups, clubs, civic organizations and youth groups.

OUR FARMING PRACTICES

KatievermicompostOur produce is ALWAYS grown without the use of any synthetic pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers.We believe building healthy soils for our plants will produce nutritionally superior vegetables, full of vitamins and minerals.  Produce grown this way not only tastes better, but is better for you and the planet. We nurture the life in our soils by shoveling lots of compost and vermicompost onto our beds. We feed our soils special compost teas that we brew to boost the microbial life in the soil. We grow cover crops for fertility and soil conservation.
