In 2011, Christopher and Rickie… and their dog Juno… fell in love with a beautiful tract of land and moved from the “big city” (Carrboro, NC) up to beautiful Hurdle Mills, NC. Since that time, they have dedicated themselves to growing beautiful flowers, teas, and unique produce items in the most sustainable way possible. With each year, they learn new lessons about which crops work best on the land, how to farm most efficiently in a low-tech and sustainable manner, and what sells well at market. They both enjoy experimenting with new crops each year and bringing unique items to market that build upon the region’s wide array of locally available offerings.
Each year, we look for great folks to join our team on the farm and at our farmer’s market stands. Please check out our latest job and volunteer opportunities if you’d like to get more involved with our farm.
