About Us

With a rich tradition of farming, the fourth and fifth generations to work the land are still going strong in Efland, North Carolina. It’s always a collective effort from everyone here to keep the land, plants, and animals well-cared for, healthy, and beautiful.

Howard Jr. stays busy with the strawberries, vegetables, orchard, and flowers; preparing the land and tending to these crops. His wife Karen, previously an agricultural extension agent for Orange County, now works on the farm with the beef cattle, her sheep, and whatever else needs to be done. Daughters Callie and Elizabeth both help out on the farm when they are around, continuing the tradition of farming that is over 135 years strong. The farm also relies on an incredible team of talented individuals, each of whom work to plant, care for, harvest, and sell the crops we grow. Our way of farming would not be possible without everyone’s efforts to keep it going.

We raise a wide range of seasonal vegetable and fruit crops that are sold at the farm stand and at the Carrboro Farmers' Market year-round. We also raise Angus cattle and Katahdin sheep. Check out the pictures of what we grow to see more!
