Support Carolina Farm Stewardship Association

The current crisis facing our country has shown us just how fragile our food system is. Our regional farmers are the backbone of our local food movement and they are working tirelessly to ensure our continued access to healthy, sustainably grown food. Now, more than ever is the time for us to stand with them and work together to build a stronger, more resilient food system that serves everyone.

Honoring Bill Dow

We lost an organic farming pioneer when William “Bill” Dow passed away in December 2012.

Bill believed passionately in local, organic food and farming, which did not really exist in the late 1970’s when he started Ayrshire Farm in Chatham. Bill was a trailblazer – setting up Farmers’ Markets across the Southeast, including the Carrboro Farmers’ Market, and being one of the first farmers in the Carolinas to achieve organic certification – all before local and organic was in demand.
