C&L Farms Grows is an 8 acre family farm Northeast of Carrollton Georgia. All of our produce is grown with natural methods, meaning that no chemical fertilizers, sprays, or pesticides are used. Our main focus is our microgreens but we also grow a Spring salad mix as well as herbs. We utilize raised beds for most of the growing area used by the farm which allows us to control the inputs into the soil and reduces the amount of extra work involved because we don't have to pull weeds as often.
Our mission is to foster social and environmental change through the production of local food, and to help, teach, and empower people to start growing their own. We believe that our transition from a petroleum based society is inevitable and how we chose to perceive that potentially devastating event is entirely up to us.
At C&L Farms, we see that as an opportunity to create the world we want to live in, and while we move from a society and food system that is energy intensive, environmentally destructive, and socially inequitable, we can have fun, eat good wholesome food, get some exercise, and reconnect with the soil and our community at the same time.
We hope that you will feel inspired to start a small garden at your home (or even apartment) so you can experience the joy of growing and providing food for you and your family.
We are currently finishing the construction of a commercial kitchen on the farm which will be used to create fermented foods such as kimchi, sauerkraut, miso, tepache, and sourdough breads.
We are also continuing our fruit and berry orchard with the addition of new fruit trees this Spring (2020). These fruits and berries will be used to make jams and jellies as well as provide additional income for the farm at the local farmers market.
The next big project will be adding a large 3-season (Spring, Summer, Fall) aquaponics system that will be used as a teaching tool for our local community. The hydroponics system inside our hoop house provides enough greens year-round for our farmers market but the addition of an outdoor aquaponics system will allow us to grow more without as much input to the soil.
