We’re still bouncing around the Carolinas, meeting inspiring farmers and food advocates in every single community we step our stormin’ boots into! Among the dedicated farmers are young people excited and ready to push a local, responsible food movement forward. As the average age of farmers in the United States continues to hover around 57 years old, we’re ready to support a younger generation of food producers. A brilliant example comes from Red Beard Farms in Castle Hayne. Hop over to our blog to read about the young farm and why college student Kayla Mixon traded in a summer at the beach to three months of farm labor — enjoying every minute. And be sure to check out the photos from the rest of our trip in Wilmington!
