Color Fields Farm
Color Fields, LLC
Color Fields, LLC is a 2 acre sustainable flower, vegetable and herb farm located 6 miles north of downtown Hillsborough, NC. We bring a diverse array of crops to market year round ranging from gourmet lettuce and mesclun mixes to heirloom tomatoes and beautiful flowers based on the season. All of our greens are triple rinsed and only the highest quality produce and flowers are brought to market each week. We also operate a Market Share Program that allows shoppers to pre-pay during the winter and receive an extra 10% that they can use at our stand on anything we sell year round.
We do not use single-use, disposable agricultural plastics such as plastic mulches. When we need to use mulches for long term weed control, we prefer landscape fabric that is rated 10+ years of life. We avoid using products that can not be re-used or recycled easily. Like many things, the environmental costs of producing and disposing of these widely used agricultural plastics are not represented in the price of purchase.
At Color Fields, we believe in farming organically and making decisions based on what is good for the soil and the health of our plants. This allows us to bring the highest quality produce and flowers to our customers every week of the year. We believe strongly in the benefits of compost for both soil building and minimizing organic wastes on our farm. We use cover crops, crop rotations and plant certain herbs and flowers specifically to attract beneficial insects. These practices enable us to grow the healthiest plants possible and control pest populations and potential disease organically.
