In our 37th year of production, we grow roughly 3 acres of vegetables, cut flowers, and blueberries on our 26 acre farm in Alamance County. Crops are grown year-round with the help six unheated movable hoophouses. Though not currently certified organic, we do follow those standards. We sell our products primarily at the Carrboro Farmers’ Market, supplemented by restaurant sales and some wholesaling. The farm is located about 10 minutes from Saxapahaw, 25 minutes from Carrboro/Chapel Hill, 20 minutes from Pittsboro, 30 minutes from Hillsborough, and 45 minutes from Durham.
