Grow With ECO

Interested in becoming an ECO grower? We're always looking to speak with and possibly partner with new farms in our quest to build the local organic food movement. In particular, ECO is interested in building relations with Carolina growers who:

  • Are certified organic or are willing to get certified
  • Have experience in farming and can produce at least 1 acre of vegetables
  • Have crop appropriate infrastructure, such as
    • Computer/Internet access
    • Irrigation
    • Post harvest washing, packing, and refrigeration
    • Transportation
    • Greenhouse

ECO's core growers work closely with our Production Coordinator to set crop plans for the year, based on market demand and farm resources. Our goal in coordinating production is to create a year-round supply of fresh local produce and reduce the overproduction of items that everyone grows. We have the unique opportunity to produce a year-round supply because of the multiple climates represented in North Carolina. We can often use products from any region at any time during the year, but we are very interested in establishing relationships based on mutual production goals. For more information, contact Andrew.
