2020 Season Updates…Where do we go from here ?

Greetings to all our Country Basket customers and Farmers Market Customers ! Someone asked us the other day if we were retiring this year ? Well nothing could be further from the truth. We are actually expanding into other areas of early produce production. We see the writing on the wall with this ever changing weather and the future is going to be inside production including more varieties.
Last season ended on a sad note for us as I (Gary) lost my Mom. For over 4 years we were checking on her daily and our life’s changed over night.
Connie now has more responsibilities helping  her Mom & Aunt as things have become more challenging for her.
With all the new additions going in on the farm and with Connie needing to help her Mom more we have decided to take this season off from our Country Basket Program after 7 years of deliveries. This should give us more time to get our farm additions in place for the 2021 season.
Our plans are to install another Tunnel this summer for even more early and different varieties of produce. We are also up-dating all 3 of the existing tunnels to make them more energy efficient for the coming years. With new cooling, heating and lighting features we already look forward to the 2021 season !
Because of these updates and construction we will Not be able to offer any Tours this season. We appreciate everyone’s understanding . These changes should allow us to grow when Mother Nature has other ideas for outside growing.
We will still be at The Moore County Farmers Market on Monday’s in Pinehurst at First Health Fitness Center and On Saturdays we will be in Downtown Southern Pines in the Park, starting Mid April 2020.
Thanks to each and everyone of you for your support and understanding ! We hope to see you at the Markets.
