E.A.T. South is a community based non-profit 501(c)(3) organization in Montgomery, Alabama which is dedicated to promoting local, sustainable farming. E.A.T. South currently runs two small scale urban educational farms in Montgomery, AL. We sell our produce through a CSA, farm stands, and to local chefs. We also donate produce to local charities.
Come by one of our farm sites to see whats growing. Hampstead Farms is located in the Hampstead neighborhood off of Taylor rd. in east Montgomery. Look for the big red barn. This farm features community beds for Hampstead residents, a working barn, production planting beds, butterfly garden, and lawn event space. We have recently added sections for beehives, in addition to a community recycling, composting, & bio-diesel program by Southern Eco.
The E.A.T. South Downtown Farm is located in the heart of downtown Montgomery . This farm opened in April 2011. It features production beds, a caboose farm center, a working windmill, a greenhouse (which is used to grow starts for our farms, our local schools, our local community gardens, and our community), and our multi-station children's garden is on it's way to being completed.
E.A.T. South is excited about community involvement. Connecting people with their food systems and educating people about how food grows is very important to us. We give farm tours and host field trips at both farm sites as well as host annual events and dinners. Community members are also encouraged to volunteer at the farms. Volunteering is a great way to learn about farming and gardening through hands on experience.

I have gotten a CSA share from E.A.T. South for a year, and I love it! Not only is the all-natural produce fabulous, the folks running the CSA are friendly and knowledgeable, always ready to share recipes and cooking tips.
