Our Roots


Colony Urban Farm Store is a family-owned business that was founded in 2016 on the principle of "Know It, or Grow It," meaning a significant amount of your food supply should come from known (preferably local) sources or be grown at home.

We are proud to support Winston-Salem's local food movement by working with local farmers, beekeepers and vendors while also promoting your path toward homesteading based self-sufficiency. We are champions of backyard animal husbandry (queue the bees and chickens!) and will help you learn to incorporate urban agriculture into a busy, modern lifestyle. 

Other members of our "Colony" are Fool's Gold Premium Honey and Bee Our Future.  Click on the icons below to learn more about our sister businesses.
