Piedmont Biofarm was founded in 2006 by Doug Jones, an elder of the sustainable agriculture movement. Doug’s vision for the farm was to combine vegetable production, seed saving and breeding work, and a focus on educating the next generation of farmers. Over time, he became known for his extensive breeding lines of peppers, and he devoted increasing amounts of his energy to this project. Realizing this, he began looking for the next generation of vegetable farmers to transition leadership of the farm in order to allow him to focus more on his pepper work.
In 2014, two of Doug’s former interns – Brett Evans and Will Carmines – decided to take the opportunity and reorient the farm back towards market and CSA farming. Brett and Will each had previously worked on several other farms and were ready to take the next step in managing their own operation with consultation from Doug. The focus on high-quality peppers, heirloom sweet potatoes, and a diversity of greens continues under Brett and Will’s, as does the use of season extension to grow year-round.
