Adah harvests spinach

Adah harvests spinach. The brassica crops in the background have been allowed to bolt so that pollinators and other beneficial insects can forage on the flowers.

Piedmont Biofarm is located at the Piedmont Biofuels Industrial Plant in Pittsboro. The farm is in the process of becoming certified organic.

Doug Jones with seed plants

Jack operates the John Deere which runs on biodiesel produced on site at Piedmont Biofuels. Doug shows some of the plants he grows for seed as part of his seed-saving research.
worm greenhouse
This is the vermicomposting greenhouse. Amanda Sand is the resident worm wrangler, feeding the worms food and paper waste from local businesses. The resulting vermicompost – also known as “black gold” – will be sold to lucky gardeners. Doug’s transplants sit out front, awaiting their final destination in the fields.
