With Warren Brothers, Brothers Farm, La Grange, NC
Warren has been a farmer on Brothers Farm in La Grange, NC, all his life. He grew up farming tobacco and traditional crops, but about twelve years ago, he decided to make the switch to all-natural vegetables, herbs and flowers. He was certified "organic" but quickly found out that he didn't like paperwork, so now he raises vegetables "all natural" and his customers know that he is mindful. He serves many area restaurants in Kinston, New Bern and Greenville, and also offers a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) package for folks who want to buy a bag of fresh produce each week. He offers his excess fresh produce to Mary's Kitchen, the soup kitchen in Kinston. He has been featured on the award-winning PBS show, "A Chef's Life" and is currently one of Chef Vivian Howard’s produce suppliers.
Warren is going to love walking you around the farm, showing you the vegetable, herb and flower beds. Do you want to get down in the dirt? Then, work with Warren from 9 am until noon. Help him prop beds, seed, water, plow and harvest! Feed the pigs and chickens and guineas and farm cats if you want. He will point out the four bathtubs where he washes vegetables, and the barns, the greenhouse, and the hoop house. Walk the four mile trail to the pines at the back of the 300 acre farm. Take a boat ride on the pond in the canoe. Since he is all-natural, he doesn't use pesticides, so feel free to help pull weeds also.
PRICE Starts at $50.00
