Bell Urban Farm is located across the street from the Faulkner County Library in Conway, Arkansas. It is our mission to be a positive influence on the local food system by growing produce and flowers in a sustainable manner. We want to provide customers with access to healthy, locally grown products, educational opportunities and community building events.
Bell Urban Farm is Certified Naturally Grown! What does "Certified Naturally Grown" mean?
CNG farmers don’t use any synthetic herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms. CNG livestock are raised mostly on pasture and with space for freedom of movement. Feed must be grown without synthetic inputs or genetically modified seeds.
We are also proud to be a member of the Homegrown By Heroes program. Zack is a former military veteran and when you purchase products from our farm you are keeping your money in our community and supporting veterans like him.
We love being part of the local food system in Conway and getting the chance to meet and interact with our customers at our events. Getting to know where your food comes from means getting to know your local farmers!
Help us open Conway's First local foods grocery store! Read more about our plans here!
