Our 65th @realfarmercare recipient - Jason & Ami Roland of Organically Roland @organicallyroland in Lexington, SC.


Jason writes, “My wife and I have a small farm in Lexington, South Carolina and we currently provide produce for seven restaurants, 30+ CSA members and sell at our local markets. We are all organic and believe in letting our produce be as natural as the earth itself on our two-acre growing space. We use biodynamic and low till methods, cover crops, compost, natural minerals, emulsions and call stardust from the heavens to fertilize our crops in our biodynamic process. We farm on land that has been in my family for over 250 years, and we are proud to honor this land since before that, it belonged to my Cherokee ancestors that includes my great grandmother from my mother's side of the family, and my grandmother from my father's side of the family. We also honor my beautiful mother as she taught me how to garden from the time of infancy, and she inspired my love of the soil, and still helps us in the field as much as she can.

During these uncertain times, you can support us by signing up for our CSA since we’ve lost the majority of our restaurant sales due to the effects of COVID-19. We would also like to offer to any restaurant employee, whether we sell to them or not, that if they have been affected by temporary unemployment, we'd love to offer free veggies to them and their families. It might not be much, but it's the least that we can do to support anyone in need. Of course we are focusing on helping our restaurant friends as most of them are closed now, but if anyone is displaced because of temporary job loss, or doesn't have food because of schools being closed, we offer for anyone to contact us and we are happy to donate as much produce as we can.”
