Congratulations to Doug for this well-deserved award. I have worked with Doug for over eight years and have always been impressed with the quality of his produce and his generosity in sharing his knowledge and passion for agriculture with others.

We did three separate "Show and Tell" visits to Piedmont Biofarm this year (as part of Cooperative Extension's Farm Show and Tell series) to see Doug's farm in each season and at every one attendance was high because of Doug's reputation and all the interesting things he has going on at Piedmont Biofarm!

Piedmont Biofarm sells produce through their Community Supported Agriculture program and also at the Carolina Brewery Farmers' Market (Pittsboro) and the Durham Farmers' Market. Their winter CSA will resume in February.
