In 2009, we founded 180 Degree Farm as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, to help those fighting cancer. Through our own sons fight with cancer, we realized there was a great need in our community for nutrient dense, organically grown food, that did not contain toxic pesticides, herbicides, hormones, or antibiotics.
We also realized that many families fighting cancer may have insurance for treatment, but are financially unable to afford the lifestyle change it takes to recover and heal. Not only does our organization give organic food to those families who are fighting cancer through our Food Fight Program, but we also teach about how to avoid the dangers in our current food system and proper nutrition.
You can find us at the farm on Saturday mornings, where we sell fresh organic fruits and vegetables to the public. This helps generate much needed revenue to purchase seeds, compost, organic feed, and covers operating expenses.
Thank you and God Bless!
