Dinner Bell Farm is a local family farm growing chemical-free and sustainably-raised vegetables, herbs, and fruit, as well as pasture-raised eggs, chicken, and pork. As a family, we started Dinner Bell Farm because we are committed to participating in a local, sustainable food system that is
healthy for people and the earth.
Our farm is a source of inspiration not only for what we grow, cook and eat, but also for how we live.

Growing vegetables and caring for the earth have always been core values in our family. Originally from southwest Florida, we all spent years as enthusiastic backyard and community gardeners. Plus, the whole family loves to cook and eat!
As our family grew to understand the impact of our food choices on the wellbeing of both humans and the environment, we decided to take our values one step - or one giant leap - further, moving to the land to start Dinner Bell Farm in 2015.
By creating a sustainable, diverse farm, we are able to bring together our values of healthy food, healthy planet, and healthy community. We use natural practices to regenerate the land and grow delicious, nutrient dense food for our community. As farmers, this is the best way that we can care for the planet and future generations.
Community matters to us - knowing each other’s names and building friendships, sharing welcome and hospitality, belonging together as partners in the farm. That’s why our main focus is our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)--a weekly veggie and egg delivery--as well as regular gatherings at the farm for our community to enjoy good food, good company, and the beauty of the land.
We value service to our local community. Produce is also donated to SAFE, our local food pantry, Stone Soup Ministries, and other ministries in our community. We believe in being good neighbors to all who live in Alamance County and are involved in community groups, collaborations, and service.

We are excited to share the farm, forest, fields and animals - chickens, pigs, and goats! We are planning monthly seasonal and themed events as well as a summer day camp.
Stephanie is a Certified Forest Bathing Guide and is planning monthly forest walks - a slow, mindful way of being in the forest and focusing on our senses to develop a rich connection to the forest and Earth.
Come rest, reflect, and renew your spirit in creation on Third Mondays, February - November. Spend time alone and in community as you choose how to delight in your day apart.
Plan your next group retreat here on the farm. We will provide the space and hospitality and can work with you to include farm and forest experiences. Or even help design the programming!
