The Southern Piedmont Farm School was accidentally cited as a Bread Riot program in a previous Salisbury Post article… It’s not, but like NC Farm School we’re glad to be friends and supporters of beginning farmers! If you’ve been dreaming about starting a farm, check out this article and think about attending the Farm School summit this October! (And signing up for the school next year).

Students who participated in the North Carolina Farm School got to see first-hand on May 18 what it takes to be a successful beef cattle and produce farmer in Rowan County.

Participants started the day off by traveling to Correll Farms in Cleveland. Correll Farms/Red Barn Market is primarily a produce farm but has other farming avenues, as well. This family-owned operation grows a vast variety of products, ranging from asparagus to peaches.

While we’re on the subject here’s a video about NC Farm School (filmed at a different farm school):

One highlight of the video: do a soil test! They’re free April-Nov, $4 Nov-March. A soil test can help you dramatically increase your garden’s yield!
