Aside

Fresh from Browns Summit

29 May

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 June 3:  We will have green beans, arugula, onions, rainbow chard, squash, and lettuce. Also mint, cilantro, parsley, and dill.

The 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 congolina@outlook.com. Our address is 5919 Bush Road in Browns Summit.

The solar farm next to our vegetable field has now generated over four gigawatt hours of electric power that is fed into the grid via Duke Energy.  That’s the equivalent of 350,000 gallons of gasoline. Here is a link to the current status.

Here are pictures from of some of our team.
