What We Do

Carolina Farm Trust is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting local farms with funds, land, and sustainable energy to compete with corporate farming. Our mission is to overcome the rapidly growing challenge of affordable food access throughout the Carolinas.

There is a place for everyone at the local food table. We seek to partner with retail consumers, suppliers, academia, farmers, value-added business, restaurants and wholesale companies.

As the demand for locally produced food continues to rise, as our populations increase, and as our cities grow, we need to ensure that food will continue to be produced locally. Carolina Farm Trust works tirelessly to make production simple and profitable so we can foster an ecosystem of sustainable farming.

CURRENT PROJECTS:
We are in the process of creating two urban farms in the Charlotte area. The Urban Farm at Aldersgate is currently underway and will serve the East Charlotte community with nutritious produce, health education, and events. Our other urban farm (not yet named) in Fairview, a Charlotte suburb, is coming to life from the collaboration of Nebedaye Farms, Serendipity Flowers, and Crown Town Compost. Together, these organizations will be growing fresh produce and flowers, with the help of Charlotte residents' compost, for its community.

Interesting Info

We host a yearly music and food festival, the Carolina Jubilee, to promote our mission and raise money to support local farms.
Carolina Farm Trust Dinner Series: We host four-course dinners featuring different farmers at local restaurants to benefit the Carolina Farm Trust.
