Bell Urban Farm is located across the street from the Faulkner County Library in Conway, AR. We are less than a mile away from downtown Conway and Hendrix College.
1. Produce quality, healthy and nutritious products.
2. Be a positive influence on the local food system.
3. Create community through growing and sharing food.
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 and at the farmers' market. Getting to know where your food comes from means getting to know your local farmer and ask them about what kinds of growing practices they use. Next time you see us at market don't hesitate to ask us questions about our farm or our produce!
