Local farmer Shawn Carr, of Carr farms, recently directed a $5,000 Bayer Fund America’s Farmers Grow Communities donation to the Land Lab of Isle of Wight County Schools. The Land Lab will use the funds to build a smokehouse at the farm. The America’s Farmers Grow Communities program, a Bayer Fund program, partners with farmers to provide grants to local nonprofits and schools to help their communities. Through the program, farmers enroll for the chance to direct a $5,000 donation to a local eligible nonprofit organization or school of their choice.
