About 5,500 acres of farmland are under cultivation at Caledonia. Correction Enterprises manages the farm, which contains a poultry-laying operation and row crop/vegetable operation that plants corn, wheat and soybeans. In addition, the offenders farm 300 acres of sweet corn, collard greens, sweet potatoes, squash, cucumbers and melons. Offenders also work in the prison's cannery. The cannery processes and cans crops grown on the farm for distribution to prison kitchens across the state. The operation is 12,770 square feet and has the capability of canning about 500,000 gallons of commodities per year. Offenders work on crews at the prison farm. They may also be assigned to maintenance or janitorial duties at Caledonia. Offenders may work on labor contracts and manual labor jobs for local governments. Other offenders work in the prison in food service, barbers, grass cutters and recreation clerks. Halifax Community College works with the prison to provide vocational classes like cooking, block masonry, small engine repair, electrical wiring, commercial cleaning and plumbing.
