Black owned green business profile series #1: Soul Fire Farm

Updated: May 20

In celebration of upcoming Juneteenth, we are featuring five black owned green businesses who are truly an inspiration in all that they do. This week's featured business is Soul Fire Farm, an Afro-Indigenous centered community farm located in Petersburg, NY. As fellow stewards of the land, we thank you for all that you do! Take a look below at what Soul Fire Farm is all about and how they are doing their part for the community.



Soul Fire Farm


Soul Fire Farm is an Afro-Indigenous centered community farm committed to uprooting racism and seeding sovereignty in the food system. We raise and distribute life-giving food as a means to end food apartheid. With deep reverence for the land and wisdom of our ancestors, we work to reclaim our collective right to belong to the earth and to have agency in the food system. We bring diverse communities together on this healing land to share skills on sustainable agriculture, natural building, spiritual activism, health, and environmental justice. We are training the next generation of activist-farmers and strengthening the movements for food sovereignty and community self-determination. Our food sovereignty programs reach over 60,000 people each year, including farmer training for Black and Brown growers, reparations and land return initiatives for northeast farmers, food justice workshops for urban youth, home gardens for city-dwellers living under food apartheid, doorstep harvest delivery for food insecure households, and systems and policy education for public decision-makers.
