Jones Farm, Home of RTP Farm Fresh Subscription Program

The Jones Farm is a fourth generation African-American owned and operated family farm located in Snow Hill, North Carolina. We have grown traditional crops like corn, wheat, cotton, soybeans and tobacco for over a century, and our family realizes that if we want to keep our farm, that we need to change to meet our customers' needs! We have learned that people want to eat fresh veggies and fruits, not cotton and tobacco!

Over the last decade, we have been experimenting with growing fresh and tasty produce using sustainable growing methods, such as integrated pest management and we have been working hard to build soil fertility naturally with cover crops and compost. We are also transitioning our land to organic production over the next three growing seasons. Right now, we sell our wholesome harvest at local farmer's markets, and in 2013, we are starting our fifth (April to October) Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, with delivery areas in Goldsboro, Raleigh, Durham, and Greenville. We will determine 2013 delivery sites based on where most of our customers live or work.

From April to Late October, The Jones Farm CSA offers a bountiful selection of freshly harvested, in season produce and herbs, such as: Basil, Beets, Turnips, Old Fashioned Mustard, Onions, Carrots, Kale, Cabbage, Collards, Broccoli, Garden Peas, Potatoes, Lettuce, Kale, Tomatoes, Sweet & Hot Peppers, Sweet Corn, Squash, Cucumbers, Okra, Sweet Potatoes, Pears, Plums, Strawberries, Blueberries, Watermelons, Grapes, Figs, Cherries, Cantaloupes and Much More! Each week we will provide a variety of 4-7 types of crops for you to enjoy. We offer 2 different share sizes: Half Share Fall 2013 Eight Weeks) Shares are available for $ 160.00( Serves 1-2); Full Fall 2013 2013 CSA Shares are available for $ 240.00 ( Serves 3-4). We hope you will consider joining our CSA program in 2013! We are so grateful for your support of local small farms.
