Hill Family Farm Education Center

Growing Access and Opportunity in Whitakers, N.C.

Our Mission

We’re on a mission to expand access to fresh produce and improve health outcomes in our community. Our farm is also a place of hands-on learning, with several programs that give individuals the knowledge and tools they need for a brighter future. We invite you to learn more about the work we’re doing and find out how you can get involved. Together, we can undo these systemic barriers and plant seeds of change.

“For many in our community, it’s more affordable to eat food that isn’t fresh or healthy. We are working to stop food injustice and make good food affordable and available to all.”

-Eunice Carrasco-Hill, founder of Hill Family Farm
