Bender Farms

As a teacher and life-long farmer respectively, Lisa and Jeff Bender come from different backgrounds but together, share the same passion for improving community through local farming. Their family farm sits on the border of northeast North Carolina and southeast Virginia, where they grow cauliflower, squash, collard greens, melons, cabbage, and other vegetables. After growing up on a tobacco farm, Jeff earned a degree from NC State University, where he also met his wife Lisa. The two returned to Jeff's family farm to carry on the farming tradition.

"Jeff and I grow everything with the people who will eat our food in mind. We know that what we grow will be on someone's table, fed to those they love most. Our farming operation is as much about people -- homes, kitchens and schools -- as it is about agriculture, land stewardship and business."
