We are a family-owned and operated farm, orchard, and bakery.  Our desire is to provide wholesome, low-chemical food for our customers.  We want to share with you what we like to eat! We offer fruits and veggies, pastured brown eggs, and jam and apple butter made from our own fruit. We use freshly ground certified chemical-free wheat flour which produces a delicious flavor in baked goods. Call to special order peaches from the farm beginning the 1st of July through the middle of September. We have expanded our vegetable patch so if you need something or want to visit the farm stand at the house, please give us a call.

We are at Rocky Mount Farmers’ Market, Easter through Christmas – Saturdays 8:30am-5pm and also at the South County Seasonal Farmers’ Market in season.
