Last year, we featured Russell Vollmer, owner of fifth generation family farm, Vollmer Farm in Bunn, NC as part of our Farmer Leadership Series. Read more about the history of the farm here.
Vollmer Farm is passionate about agritourism and frequently hosts school groups and other community members on the farm. Russ says, “My passion is growing food for people to eat, to know where it comes from, to know me and to know our struggle and to be with us in our ups and downs.” They offer farm stays, hay rides, a unique pumpkin finding experience, and events on the “Back Forty,” including their annual Blueberry Music Festival. This Festival is another way visitors can support their nonprofit Food is Love and help them serve more meals to community members in need.
At RAFI-USA, we are proud our work is shaped by farmer leaders who have come together to make change happen. We strive to ensure that farm families and rural communities thrive, and we can only continue to do this working side by side with farmers like Russell Vollmer.
