FOOD & FARMING

Our Commitment

Preparing made-from-scratch meals  using fresh, whole, natural ingredients

Serving food that promotes the health of our bodies and of God’s Creation

Supporting local farmers and businesses

Community Farm

Campers, staff, and community members all join together to provide naturally grown produce and livestock to our kitchen.

Fresh, Whole and Natural

Since 2009, Chestnut Ridge has been committed to purchasing food free of trans-fats, MSG, artificial dyes and flavors, and high fructose corn syrup.

Coffee

We partner with Larry's Beans in Raleigh to provide locally roasted, fair-trade, organic coffe called the "Happy Camper" blend. 5% of all proceeds from this blend support camperships.

Education

Through hands-on learning at the Community Farm and active and purposeful engagement with creation, campers learn to value the Earth and what comes from it.

Dietary Needs

We understand that everyone is different and we are here to make sure that you have the food you need. Please let us know on the health form of any needs, and we will be sure to meet them.
