Elijahs Farm, Rougemont, NC
Amber Burgin is developing a mobile farmers market trailer with refrigeration to enable the farm to transport, store, and sell their produce. By partnering with non-farmers market locations, they have less overhead, less competition, and can sell food to their desired market, which includes communities located in areas of food apartheid. In the future, they plan to produce value added products (mushroom jerky, nutritional supplements, teas, sauces, hemp body products, etc) and offer those for sale in addition to produce, as well as develop a larger market of mobile market customers in the surrounding triangle areas, allowing us to add jobs and internships in their community.
Elijah’s Farm, run by Elijah Burgin ( age 10) and his mom Amber Burgin, is a small farm located in Rougemont NC, specializing in organically grown mushrooms and market produce.
