Down 2 Earth Farms in the News

Meet the Farmer: Cecilia Redding

Advocates for Health in Action

"After a 25-year career in the food and beverage industry, Cecilia Redding swapped out her office for 143 acres of land she bought in Rougemont, N.C., and began a new career:  farming. She’s putting down new roots at Down 2 Earth Farms (D2E) as part of a life-long desire to farm."

75 Million Acres of Soybeans, but no Edamame!?

Rob Meyer, The Tater Times (Papa Spuds)

"The USDA reports that we produced over 75 million acres of soybeans in 2011 ($40+ billion dollars). So, why don’t we see more of these soy beans available to us as edamame? I posed that question to Cecilia Redding of Down 2 Earth Farms, who is providing us with what seems like a rare find; fresh, locally grown edamame!"

Eastern Carolina Organics

"We're thrilled to congratulate Down 2 Earth Farms, the latest ECO grower to obtain organic certification! Owner Cecilia Redding purchased the land in Rougemont in 2011. Since then, only organic growing practices have been used on the farm but, as required by the USDA, this had to be documented for three years before the land was eligible for certification."
