Foot Print Farms is the largest urban farm in the state of Mississippi, and its existence is indebted to Cindy Ayers, the founder of Foot Print Farms. They help train farmers throughout the state to work with communities and help address the issue of food deserts in Mississippi. Established in 2010, Foot Print Farms continues to impact the community with their work.
“We are very different, a unique type of farm. We do a lot of training of young farmers to teach them how to work with communities on how they can grow some of their own food, to help address food deserts here in our state, and especially in our city. So right now I’m excited to be a farmer here in the city of Jackson and to be able to make a difference. And I feel like we are making a difference in our community.”- Cindy
