If you’re looking for a farm that offers a very wide range of products, you should definitely put Windcrest Farm at the top of your list. Founded by Ray and Mary Roberts Tarlton (who are also the co-owners and managers of Final Touch Construction Services), Windcrest is a family-owned and operated farm that is spread over an area of 14 acres and located in Monroe, 30 miles south of downtown Charlotte.
The farm is dedicated to biodiversity and sustainable agriculture principles and to that end, makes it a point to grow products and plants that are friendly to the ecosystem and to the customers. The farm grows over 250,000 flower, herb and vegetable plants every year, and includes rare plant varieties as well. True to their motto, all of their flowers and produce are Certified Organic by the USDA, using amendments that meet the standards of the National Organics Program (NOP), organic fertilizers and natural methods of pest control.
Besides farming, the farm supplies home gardeners and farmers markets, and conducts hand-on classes to guide gardeners and farmers at the beginning of their career on learning the tenets of sustainable agricultural practice.
