Our Story at Benevy Farms
Established in 2019, Benevy Farms was born out of a profound mission: to combat food insecurity and contribute to the restoration of biodiversity. Witnessing the challenges faced by our local community in accessing affordable and healthy food options, coupled with the alarming decline in biodiversity and pollinator populations, fueled our commitment to make a positive impact.
Situated on just half an acre, our farm may seem small, but the abundance it yields might surprise you. We recognized the need for accessible, organic produce and aimed to redefine the possibilities of what can be achieved in a limited space.
At Benevy Farms, we cultivate a diverse array of delicious and visually stunning plants with your well-being, garden aesthetics, and home in mind. From perennials, pollinators, and fruit plants for a vibrant garden to fresh, chemical-free produce promoting health, and unique house plants, plastic-free soy candles, and wax melts to enhance your living spaces.
To ensure the health and purity of the food we grow, as well as the restoration of soil health and biodiversity, we employ farming techniques that give back more to the Earth than we take. We proudly embrace a Chemical-Free, No-Till Sustainable Farming approach with regenerative methods. This means no tractors, no pesticides, no herbicides, and no synthetic fertilizers, all of which can harm the Earth.
Our commitment extends to efficient and effective manual labor for plant cultivation, supplemented by nature itself. We've enlisted the help of beneficial insects like Ladybugs and Praying Mantises for pest control, creating a harmonious ecosystem that aligns with our dedication to sustainable and regenerative practices.
Benevy Farms is not just a farm; it's a pledge to nurture health, beauty, and sustainability for our community and our planet. Join us on this journey towards a greener, healthier future.
