Fiddlehead Farm

Fiddlehead Farm is an award winning, farm and micro-jammery in the amazing little town of Pittsboro NC.

We grow lots of hot peppers for our hot sauces (plus a few other fun things!) and we’re also making lots of preserves, finishing salts and hot sauces inspired by what’s in season, at market, and growing in our garden. Making our products in small batches and using the best possible local/organic ingredients is the most important thing we can do and it brings us great joy.

There is a lot of hard work and love in each jar, so much love in fact, that we were a Good Food Award finalist for our Blueberry & Cinnamon Basil Jam in 2016, our Blueberry Hibiscus Jam in 2017, and in 2018 we were winners for our Roasted Strawberry Preserves, in 2020 for our Strawberry & Honeysuckle Jelly  and for our Black Garlic Rooster Sauce in 2021!

Heart Song Farm

We like to say that we grow awe & wonder, otherwise known as flowers and produce. The spark for the farm started due for a mother’s love for a child who was struggling. Jeff and Emily’s younger daughter was born with a dairy and soy protein intolerance. Through a lot of research, Emily found a calling for better options for her family and started a garden. Then went back to school at CCCC for Sustainable Agriculture which led the family to move from Northern Chatham to the heart of Chatham to start a farm from scratch right in between Pittsboro and Siler City. Jeff keeps busy in health care but is the “executive grounds keeper” and infrastructure builder.
Emily prides herself from starting everything from seed and providing a wide variety within the crops. She’s always researching new varieties and going down wild rabbit holes to find something exciting, tasty, and/or historically important to share. Seeds have stories to be told, and she’s there and ready to tell them!
What will you find from us at the farmers market? Really awesome flowers and produce! We’ve been focused on mainly produce, but there’s been a big shift to mainly flowers in 2021. There’s also delicious food products/spices/teas that you don’t want to miss out on. These are always seasonal and once we sell out, you have to wait until next year! But the flowers, y’all! Oh the flowers! You can get fresh cut bouquets that will last and last. And when the weather gets too cold for flowers in the field to grow, the dried flowers come out as well as fresh greenery wreaths.
You can sign up for a flower & produce CSA. Find out more about those on our website.

In Good Heart Farm

We are a small, family produce farm of 10 years located about 10 miles west of downtown Pittsboro, NC. Our address is Pittsboro, more specifically we’re off Jay Shambley Road in Hickory Mountain. The farm was loved and cultivated by the late Bill Dow, who was the first NC farmer to have his farm certified organic and one of the founders of the Carrboro Farmers’ Market. The farmland is now owned and operated by us, farm & life partners, Patricia Parker & Benjamin Shields, along with our two children. We strive to continue Bill’s legacy and farm in a way that is ecologically healthy & communally strengthening. Currently we grow year-round on about 5 acres (3 in orchard and 2 in garden). Rotation, cover crops, and compost are central to our production philosophy of feeding the soil biology to feed the crops. We grow a little over 100 different varieties of vegetables, a few different fruits (strawberries,melons, apples, pears, and blueberries) as well as annual cut flowers. We grow and sell year round by using various season extension tools, variety selection and a few different marketing channels, namely our CSA, farmer’s markets and restaurants. We believe access to healthy food is a human right. We offer sponsored CSA shares for community members in need & we also participate in an annual collaboration we founded called Farm it Forward. We provide CSA shares along with community partners, Wake Med Energize! and Wake County Cooperative Extension, for a 6 week long program that includes cooking and eating with other families. We like to be part of the community and we enjoy participating in the Abundance Foundation’s PepperFest, the Carolina Farm Stewardship Assocation’s (CFSA) Piedmont Farm Tour, and the Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS) Farm to Fork fundraiser, among other events.

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.

Misty Morning Ranch

Misty Morning Ranch is a small family run farm in North Carolina. Driven by our passion for sustainable agriculture we started raising ostriches in 2016. After leaving the city life of Los Angeles behind, husband and wife team, Gaby and Ryan, found a beautiful 60-acre ranch in Robbins, NC. With a passion and drive for sustainability, they began researching alternatives for farming.

After visiting many different operations and learning as much as two city people can about farming, they settled with raising ostriches. Thanks to North Carolina goodness grows, they were able to find Hilltop Ostrich Farm for mentoring and guidance. With the mentoring and support from Hilltop Ostrich Farm, Misty Morning Ranch began raising ostriches in 2016. Today, they continue to partner and work together.

Naturally Local

My name is Stéphanie Bart, mother, home chef, runner and now entrepreneur. I was born and raised in France in a rural area where simple, natural foods were the heart of our life. I didn’t know how unique and important that was at the time. After traveling to different countries, exploring different cuisines, and finally having a family of my own, I realized I wanted to get back to my roots. So I started collecting my mother’s recipes that I grew up on and replicating my childhood delights for my family.

At Naturally Local, we make natural and nutritious ingredients a staple in our custom granola blends. We specialize in three core mixtures: classic, fruity, and chocolate; however, if there is an ingredient that you love (or an ingredient that you don’t), we are happy to create custom mixes made to order. Our fresh granola and energy bites are mixed in our state-certified home kitchen.

Rocky River Hemp

Rocky River Hemp NC was started by a father and son team, Rick (my Dad) and Samuel (Me), who dreamed of using our corner of land in Chatham County, NC, as a way to support our family while connecting to the land.

Rick was semi-retired after a long career in business and serving as an officer in the US Army, and I yearned to move my young family back to my NC roots after a long west coast tenure, so we decided to apply to the North Carolina Hemp Pilot Program in 2018, and we’ve been growing hemp ever since.
