Fresh from Browns Summit

19 Aug

Farming Practices – We do not use synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides. Instead we use compost and OMRI certified products. We plant non-GMO seeds and grow outdoors in the soil.

Saturday August  20:  We will have Arugula, okra, cucumbers, edamame, eggplant, green beans, half runner beans, long noodle beans, spaghetti squash, mint, and pretty zinnia bouquets.

We will also have sweet potato leaves, Malabar, and other African greens.

Congolina table at the market is on the center aisle that leads directly to Yanceyville Street.

You are welcome to visit Congolina Farm. Our email is Our address is 5919 Bush Road in Browns Summit.

The solar farm next to our vegetable field has now generated over three gigawatt hours of electric power that is fed into the grid via Duke Energy.  That’s the equivalent of 260,000 gallons of gasoline. Here is a link to the current status.

We are all working away but enjoying every minute.
