Soul Fires Farm is a 72 acre family farm located in Grafton, New York where food is intensively cultivated using exclusively organic and ancestral techniques that increase topsoil depth, sequester carbon, and increase soil biodiversity. The buildings on the farm are hand-constructed, using local wood, adobe, straw bales, solar heat, and reclaimed materials. The goals of the farm are to end racism and injustice in the food system. The team of workers and activists there also bring diverse communities together through their programs including their Black-Indigenous-People-of-Color Farming in Relationship with Earth (BIPOC) program designed for novice and intermediate growers.
Soil Centric's Pro Tip
Their programs are for BIPOC people ready to work hard to reclaim their ancestral right to belong to the earth and have agency in the food system.
