Project Description

Kindred Seedlings Farm started as an act of anti-racism. Inspired by the lack of Black, woman representation in North Carolina’s farming industry, LaShauna Austria began her own business in the dining room of her own home in Alamance County. 

Before she even set foot on her recently acquired 20-acre piece of land, LaShauna built a thriving business all from a quarter-acre piece of property in a suburban backyard — it doesn't take a lot of land to be able to grow something! At Kindred Seedlings Farm, we don’t believe access to land is what makes you a farmer. It’s what you bring to the table. 

As LaShauna looks to grow her business, it’s time to level up her growing operation on her new historically Black-owned farm land in the rural South. To successfully launch, we are pursuing a farmraiser goal of $50,000.

What does $50,000 fund?

  • Storage facility: protect and maintain tools, tractor, lawnmower ($13,000)
  • Real greenhouse: plant starts, more capacity to start seedlings ($8,000)
  • Deer fencing: protect planting area ($18,000)
  • Historic Barn Repairs ($6,000)
  • Part-time Farm assistant ($5,000)

With these investments, Kindred Seedlings Farm can expand its produce, herb, and flower production.

Kindred Seedlings Farm is a critical piece of our farming infrastructure in North Carolina. 

Will you invest in a Black-owned farm today?
