Benevolence Farm seeks to cultivate leadership, promote sustainable livelihoods, and reap structural change with individuals impacted by the criminal justice system in North Carolina.
Our vision is to create a more equitable, just, and nurturing world for women and the communities they transform. Benevolence Farm was built on the premise of mercy and sincere belief in second chances. Our program provides a transitional living program for up to six women leaving North Carolina prisons.
Our body care micro enterprise was launched in December 2018. All of our products include at least one ingredient that has been grown and harvested right on our farm. Each item is made with all natural ingredients, such as organic coconut oil, organic shea butter, beeswax, and therapeutic grade essential oils. With guidance from the Farm Enterprise Manager, residents grow, harvest, and transform herbs and flowers into homeopathic solutions for skin and body care.
