The Farm

We are fortunate enough to be participants in the PLANT Farm Enterprise Incubator program that is facilitated by Orange County Cooperative Extension.  As part of the course, we are allowed to lease land at the Breeze Incubator Farm in Hurdle Mills for an incredibly affordable price with access to tools and equipment.  

After farming at the incubator farm for 3 seasons we transition onto our own land in Cedar Grove.  It is a 43-acre property that was used for various farming enterprises over the years including cattle and tobacco.  After being abandoned for many years, the land is in less than optimal condition for farming.  We're working hard to continue the stewardship of this farmland.
