Urban Farms

Carolina Farm Trust manages a network of urban farms in the Charlotte Metro
with the goal of making the area a global leader in sustainability by feeding the region with food from local farms.

We have purchased land for and are activating three catalyst farms.
Each farm is currently in a different stage of activation or development.

Our Current Farm Network

Manage Urban Farms Network

The Urban Farm at Aldersgate is a collaboration of Carolina Farm Trust and Aldersgate Retirement Community. It is a 6.7 acre farm that will grow culturally relevant produce year-round. It is not in production yet, but will feature traditional farming beds, an aquaponics system, mobile kitchen, beehives, and a hoop garden.

The Mill Grove Farm Co-Op, an 11-acre site in Union County, is home to three producers. Nebedaye Farms, Serendipity Flowers, and Crown Town Compost form a supportive and comprehensive farm network of cultivation, pollination, and fertilization, demonstrating the compatibility of local food systems with the circular economy model of production.
