About the Farm
Burch Farms began in 1950 on a 35-acre field in Faison, North Carolina. Today the farm covers 2,500 acres. Jimmy, Bill and Ted Burch own the farm with Jimmy’s wife Theresa Burch and son Jimmy Burch Jr. Since the 1800’s, their family has worked in the fields and they don’t plan on stoppin’ anytime soon.

The Burch Organic Process
After 3 years the North Carolina Crop Improvement Association (NCCIA) certified Burch Farms as organic growers. Organic farms do not use synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. Instead, the Burch family maintains a high crop yield by using crop rotation and carefully harvesting vegetables only at the peak of flavor-generally 120 days from plant to pluck.
