Black Owned Farms You Should Know

Mural-and-Boxes1

The Blak Business Directory’s purpose is to connect the black consumer with black businesses and black organizations.  One our passions is food.  I know many of you have heard the stories of food deserts in our communities and other groups that set up businesses and don’t have our best interest .   The very basis of self sufficiency and self reliance is to be able to feed ourselves.  That starts with where the food is grown.  It is well documented that the Department of Agriculture aggressively pursued a policy to take black farms from black farmers.  Well we may have been hurt but there are still a few farms and coops we should support whenever possible.
