This is the second of four Class Acts where we highlight four classy acts in food production and sustainability in the Piedmont region of North Carolina. These four were part of a weekend-long, 40-farm Piedmont Farm tour sponsored by the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association as a way to learn more and celebrate the small family farms in the region.
Started in 2009, Boxcarr Farms, this family farm is a true example of biodiversity. On over 30 acres, Boxcarr takes care in ensuring a diversity of seeds and crops, growing many heirloom varieties.
The heirloom varieties also extends to their diverse flock of animals, including heritage chickens and pigs.
Honeybees and goats share the beautiful land, all fed with natural feed without antibiotics or hormones.
Their mobile food truck has some amazing food – from fresh sandwiches to the most amazing strawberry granola bar, this food truck is so worth the stop.
