Farmers at the the Pittsboro Farmer’s Market:
Blueberries of Cameron
Blueberries of Cameron has been operating as a Blueberry farm for over 25 years and has a large family of loyal customers. With our U-Pick and We-Pick operation, we have observed mothers and fathers bringing their very young children to pick buckets of blueberries and seeing these children grow into teenagers as the families return each year to pick blueberries. Now these young children are returning as adults with their own families picking buckets of blueberries. Our farm is located in Cameron, NC and has been in our family for over 100 years. Our Blueberries are the Rabbiteye species with Tifblue, Powderblue, Delight, Climax and Premier the primary varieties. We have always used organic practices with our blueberries – no pesticides or commercial fertilizers.
It has been such a pleasure to be at the Pittsboro Farmers’ Market at Main Street Station and to meet the wonderful people who come by our tent to purchase and chat about blueberries.Thank you for welcoming us to the Market. We hope you will try our delicious blueberries, then come back for more!
Usually the Blueberries are ready for the market towards the end of June–this all depends on the weather. Looking forward to seeing everyone!!

Lilly Den Farm
Lilly Den Farm works hard to provide a wide variety of natural and locally raised meats for individuals and families to enjoy with the peace of mind knowing the meat was raised healthy and humanely.
We are a young family of six who live in Goldston, NC. Tucker, a farmer from Schoharie, NY, was born on a small dairy farm. There he learned the work ethic and constant hard labor it takes to be a successful farmer. Milking a herd of 30 Guernseys, he became passionate about the show aspect of breeding and raising dairy cattle.
As Tucker became an adult he began to raise his own beef because he was tired of the poor quality of meats available. Due to the demands of desirable meats from friends and family, he decided to get his meat handlers licenses, expand on his variety, and sell his products locally.
Tucker enjoys breeding, raising and selling his products. However, he is still passionate about his herd of dairy show calves, heifers, and cows. He takes them to cattle exhibitions across the country with our 10 year old son, Dennet, our 9 year old daughter, Lilly, our 2 year old, Meadow and our newest family addition, Rye.
I, Mackenzie, was fourth grade teacher from Staten Island, NY who fell in love with a country boy and the farming way of life. I have been farming full time for almost 2 years now and am fortunate enough to home school Dennet and Lilly. I feel very fortunate to have our farm and I am excited to watch it grow. It is my dream to share this wonderful experience with others.
We stand behind our product completely. We are committed to providing high quality meats at a reasonable price.
