PineyWoods Farm from LaGrange is a neat non-profit farm that is helping the community in more than one way. In addition to the 50,000 pounds of food they have given away, they also offer education to the community. Kids from local schools are able to come learn about sustainable farming practices. They teach soap making and are planning to create a new discovery building which will be used to teach adults and kids alike how to farm and other valuable skills.
- They don’t use pesticides, so if a crop becomes bug infested, they pull it up.
- The farm is home to tens of thousands of bees whose honey is given away for free.
- When completed, the Discovery Center will host classes on cooking, soap making, and related subjects.
“Working through local food charities such as Feeding the Valley Food Bank and LaGrange Personal Aid, PineyWoods Farm works to ensure residents of Troup County have fresh, organic produce available to them.”
