FARMERS FOR

OUR COMMUNITY

Our Local Farm isn’t just about us. Customers, neighbors, friends, family, business associates, the animals, the land, we are all connected. We strive to reconnect people to food & farmer and heal the land with healthy sustainably grown food. We practice regenerative farming techniques that create soil and add nutrients to the earth instead of depleting those resources.

 

Our pastured chickens (broilers and layers), rabbits and pigs are fed non-GMO grain that is grown, processed, and sold in North Carolina. That translates into less fossil fuel usage, local businesses being supported, animals raised as humanly as possible, and food that is nutrient dense.

 

ABOUT THE FARMERS

Phil and myself, Kimmie, both grew up in rural towns on acres of beautiful land where we developed a deep respect for the land and the living creatures on it. Originally from Mattawamkeag, Maine, Phil moved to North Carolina nearly twenty years ago. Though trained as a master automotive technician he became intrested in regenerative farming after becoming friends with several Polyface Farm associates. His desire to farm grew as he researched and studied more about our food and farming systems in America. Though I did not originally set out to carry on the family tradition of farming, my life has brought me full circle back to farming. I grew up on a diverse farm in Augusta County, Virginia just several miles away from the world famous Polyface Farm. After attending NC State for my undergraduate and graduate studies I worked in the Raleigh/Durham area. Since becoming a mother I have made my family and the farm my main job. We have three children that are junior farmers. The oldest two, Olivia and Elisah, are responsible for collecting your eggs, helping feed and water the animals, and making sure all trees are climbed if possible. Josiah is responsible for being stinkin’ cute and making sure the lids work on any container he can touch.

What Our Community is Saying

“I’ve been buying commercial (even really good pasture raised eggs) and they [store bought eggs] aren’t the same.”

REAL Life on Our Johnston County Farm

When someone says the word farm, what do you envision? Perhaps a field of wildflowers gently swaying in a summer breeze or a rustic old red barn with chickens quaintly pecking the ground in front of it. Maybe you picture large pasture with perfectly bailed hail dotted...

GMO-Free Chicken Stir-Fry

Some days Asian flair must be used at Our Local Farm. The aroma of fresh ginger fills the kitchen and the wok can be heard as soon as you enter our home. GMO-free chicken stir-fry is being fixed and everyone is happy. There are two ways to fix this meal. Easy = crazy...
