Celebrity Dairy, we follow time-honored French farmstead techniques to transform our milk into fresh
goat cheese, or chevre. Its taste is inextricably tied to its place of origin - our particular herd of
Alpine and Saanen goats, their forage unique to our farm's pasture and woods, the Piedmont's
gentle seasons, and our evolving skill in transforming the continuously changing milk into a delicate
fresh chevre. Simply put, Celebrity Dairy chevre is an honest expression of ourselves, and our farm,
and our place in time - our "terroir".
Like many specialty farm products, our cheese is fragile, and suffers from the abuses of shipping.
We honor our cheese's distinctive qualities by selling locally, thereby allowing us to hand deliver
directly to our customers at local farm markets, area restaurants that proudly feature it on their
menus, and select local grocery stores.
None of this occurs in a vacuum: We're an integral part of Chatham County's vigorous and growing
low impact, sustainable agriculture community that produces high quality seasonal farm products in
and for our Piedmont region. We encourage and advise other cheesemakers in North Carolina, and

work with the NC Ag Extension Service on conserving small family farms, and College of Veterinary
Medicine with small ruminant science.
On a broader scale, we support the American Cheese Society, American Institute of Wine and Food,
and the Slow Foods movement. If you're in the area, please enjoy our cheese. If you live elsewhere,
seek out and support your local farmers and farm markets.
In addition to our specialty cheeses, we offer pasture-raised chickens and eggs onsite and at local
farmers' markets. We also have goat kids for sale in the late winter and spring. Our wheat free
bakery produces wheat and dairy free baked goods for the farm, inn, and local markets. Call to ask
about catering options. Agri-tourism opportunities are throughout the year. Please call for details.

Just a short drive from the cities in North Carolina's urban crescent, the Inn at Celebrity Dairy invites
you to experience life lived at the pace of a small family farm.

Sheltered on a gentle knoll under 250-year-old oak trees, the Inn is actually two buildings: a modern
Greek Revival farmhouse skirted by wide porches, and the original settler's 1800 log cabin. The
two-story atrium joining the two serves as the farm's gathering room. Surrounding outbuildings attest
to the farm's past and present: the original log hay barn and granary, 1880's smoke house, 1940's
tobacco barns, and most recently - our farmstead goat dairy producing award-winning goat cheese.

We invite you to make yourselves at home. Savor the intense flavors of eggs from our free-range
chickens and other seasonal treats from our kitchen or neighbor's gardens. Dairy mornings start
early, but usually by 8:30 the goats are all milked, the milking parlor washdown completed, and the
day's cheesemaking is started. Time for a sitdown break, and our communal breakfast shared alike
by guests and the farm crew.

Signature ingredients of our breakfast fare include (naturally) our own chevre, and the eggs from our
free range yard chickens. Chevre regularly appears on the table as a soft fresh Montrachet style
cheese, and as a creamy condiment sweetened with fruit preserves. The supporting cast of
fresh-roasted coffee from Counter Culture - who flatter us with our own coffee blend, too many types
of tea, and seasonal fruits and preserves from our neighbors' gardens overflow the table. Open year
round.

The Mast Farm Inn is a North Carolina mountain inn, bed and breakfast plus dinner, located in
historic Valle Crucis, which has been welcoming guests since the 1800s. While there have been
improvements, like tubs-for-two, air conditioning, contemporary cuisine and fine wines at the inn, the
hospitality remains the same, attentive and sincere. Come make yourself at home at the inn in your
choice.

The inn is near Boone and Blowing Rock. Varying styles of rooms and private cottages are
available.

Enjoy a complimentary two-course gourmet breakfast each morning at the Inn that uses local and
naturally grown produce and eggs. Depending on the season, sit by the fire in one of our
wood-paneled dining rooms or on the terrace by the hill garden. We will have a private table set for
two, or for your larger family or group, if you're traveling with others. Breakfast is chef's choice; you'll
love the surprises that await.

Dinner is also available to guests and patrons at the on-site restaurant. Our menu changes
minimally each day, noticeably through the seasons. Many guests at the restaurant also wander
through the organic garden after a meal. All of the herbs and vegetables make their way into meals
at the Inn. Our salads are made from garden grown greens when in season and many of our
specials revolve around the harvests of other vegetables.

The environmentally sound practices that the Inn follows demonstrate our respect for Mother Earth
and go along with our philosophy of living and working with respect for all parties involved in the
Inn's success: our guests, staff, growers, vendors, and community.

We invite you to share in the happy result of our efforts.

More than a bed and breakfast, with guest rooms, private getaway cottages, fine dining and great
wines, organic gardens, and unique gifts completing our historic country appeal. The key to the Inn's
success, however, lies in the exceptionally friendly and caring service offered to lodging and dinner
guests alike.

The current innkeepers have placed special emphasis on the environment, creating a "green" inn
where recycling, reducing waste, and buying locally are taken seriously.

Chef Colin Patience not only brings his creativity and desire for perfection to our inn's kitchen, but
also a commitment to buy only the best and freshest ingredients. That sentiment translates to local
and organic, whenever possible. We heartily support small sustainable agriculture. Our dining
schedule varies seasonally. Reservations are always suggested.

We are a family farm committed to environmentally friendly farming, with a multi-generational view of
being faithful stewards of our family farm.

We have invested heavily in the intrastructure of our land, fencing off rivers and ponds, and
providing well water in each paddock to allow us to practice management intensive grazing, moving
our cows regularly to allow our pastures long periods of rest. We have selected cattle that finish well
on grass, taking advantage of the Senepol breed, which have a high resistance to insects and thrive
on fescue pasture, and angus-hereford brood cows to take advantage of hybrid vigor, to allow us to
produce natural, healthy beef directly from our farm to your table.

We sell by the quarter, half, and whole in order to be very competitive on price. So you get the best
of both worlds, grass fed beef produced lovingly by a local family farm, and a price at the fraction of
organic beef. Grassfed beef's health benefits will exceed organic.

chapelhillcreamery@southerncheese.com

Chapel Hill Creamery is a small dairy farm and farmstead cheese making facility. We chose Jersey
cows for their rich milk, which makes great cheese. Our cows spend their time on pasture, and
we've established an intensive rotational grazing system to ensure that they'll have access to high
quality grass during their milking season. We milk and make cheese from March through December,
when our pasture, and therefore our milk, are best. No external milk ever enters the farm. Cheeses
include fresh mozzarella, Carolina Moon and New Moon (both Camembert cheeses), Hickory Grove
(a fresh raw milk cheese), feta, fresh quark, and a fresh farmers' cheese. Cheeses are available for
purchase from farmers' markets in Carrboro, Raleigh, and Durham and at various natural food
outlets and restaurants throughout the area. Cheeses are not sold from the farm.

The dairy cows are raised out on pasture and are never supplemented with unnecessary growth
hormones or routine antibiotics. Antibiotics will be administered if an animal falls ill, but milk is
continually tested for residues before a cow is returned to production. The creamery also raises a
limited amount of pastured pork. The hogs are raised in much the same way as the dairy cows, out
on pasture/woodlands, fed an all-natural feed, and never supplemented with hormones or
antibiotics. Pork is usually sold by the half.

Our vegetables are grown in living soils without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or
fungicides and harvested at the peak of freshness. Road weary grocery store vegetables cannot
match the riss, flavor, and nutrition of our freshly harvested vegetables.

You can purchase our products at local farmers markets, at the farm, or through our Community
Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. We are proud to provide our customers with high-quality,
ethical food.

We offer a wide variety of produce, pasture-raised pork and beef, and eggs. We sell at the Durham,
Carrboro, and Oxford Farmers' Markets. We also offer a CSA. Our chickens are free-range, and
there are no cages on our farm, just a very large nest for them to relax and lay eggs. We use
integrated pest management for our vegetable production, which means that we spray only if we
have to. We have a private pesticide license, and keep records of all applications on the farm at all
times, for the EPA and for our own use. Safety is our first concern. Our pasture raised beef is
antibiotic and hormone free. Our cattle are not confined in buildings and are fed the grain we grow
and the grass that grows in our pastures. You can taste the difference. We proudly raise our own
antibiotic and hormone free pigs and hogs on open pasture, never confined to any buildings or tight
surroundings. We raise them mainly on grass, and supplement their feed with our own natural grain.
You can taste the difference.

Creekside Farms is a small family operated farm located just North of Mt. Pleasant, NC. Our farm
was started for the simple reason to provide much of our own food and raise our future children
around a farming environment so they would grow up with a strong understand of where food comes
from. We offer naturally raised, antibiotic free beef, pork, chicken and eggs. Our goals are simple: to
raise animals the way nature intended and to provide our customers will a superior product both in
taste and nutrition.

Our beef and pork is available by inidual cuts or by the whole or half animal. We strive to raise
animals the way they were meant to be raised. That means outside grazing on lush pastures or
simple rooting around and rolling in the mud.
 Both our beef and pork are packaged by a USDA Federally inspected facility and vacuum sealed in
clear plastic for extra protection in the freezer.

At Creekside Farms our chickens are raised on pasture. All chickens are provided access to grass
and large areas to roam everyday. This results in both superior tasting eggs and meat along with
much happier chickens.

We welcome both our customers and potential new customers to visit the farm year round by
appointment to purchase our products or take a farm tour. We would love to have you and your kids
visit the farm and get a better feel of exactly where your food comes from. Please call or email to
purchase our products or setup a tour.

Currently, we grow a wide range of vegetables for fresh markets, restaurants, and CSA members.
We also grow fruits such as strawberries and many varieties of melons. Our goal is to teach the
community that local, organic produce is a viable alternative to suburban sprawl, leading to healthier
people and communities.

How We Farm: Our farming practices rely on cover cropping, amending the soil with OMRI (Organic
Materials Review Institute) approved minerals and fertilizers, annual soil testing, crop rotation,
beneficial insect habitat, and careful planning for insect and weed issues. At this point the land is not
certified organic, although we follow the OMRI rules at all times. We have been certified organic in
the past, however, when the certification switched from a North Carolina agency to the USDA, the
cost increased substantially. We realized that we are primarily direct marketing, giving us immediate
contact with the people who are eating our food. This gives folks a chance to ask us any pressing
questions, and visit the farm if necessary. At this point we are doing virtually no wholesale
distribution of our produce, which would require us to be certified.

Farm Raised Pork For Sale: We raise 10 pigs annually on our farm to eat all our yummy vegetable
scraps, root up areas that need to be re-seeded, and provide companionship. Yes, they are cute
with great personalities. Our baby pigs come from Warren Wilson College and are never treated with
antibiotics or growth hormones. They are raised outside with access to fresh weeds, fresh air, and
good mudholes. The pigs need to roll around in the mud to cover their skin so they won't get
sunburnt! We also feed them grain from the local feed and seed. The meat is available by the cut at
market, or for larger amounts and a wholesale price from the farm.

Farm Raised Beef For Sale: My brother, William, and Mom manage a small herd of cows, with our
help when needed, for family meat. This year we have 5 young steers that will be prime to butcher,
so we will have some additional grass-fed beef available at the farmer's markets and to our CSA
customers.

Our Mission is...

"To grow high quality fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs using sustainable and educational
practices."

Which means ....

* The "High Quality" is to harvest and deliver fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs to our
customers in a timely manner by using organic farming practices so our products are healthy and
tasty. Our products should taste to our customer as if it just came from their backyard garden.

* The "Sustainable" is to start and grow fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs by conserving natural
resources, keeping the earth healthy by giving back more than is taken during our growing season,
and by allowing beneficial insects and organisms to prosper. Since mountain streams flow through
our farm, our farming practices keep the waterways clean.

* The "Educational" is to share what we learn so others may see farming as a viable career option
and will understand the importance of supporting and preserving family farms from urban sprawl, the
importance of saving heirloom and open pollinated varieties while being able to enjoy fresh and
healthy fruits, vegetables and herbs.

year round, and we farm 3 acres of Fairview bottom land which is leased.

We grow just about every vegetable as well as having some small scale berry vines and a couple of

different types of greens. Outdoors we grow everything and especially do a wide variety of peppers,
both hot and sweet.

Faming since 1993 and certified organic from 1993 up until the USDA took over and the price
became too high to justify economically, we still use the same organic practices today although we
are no longer certified. We farm sustainably, putting back into the land what we take out. We do
this with organic approved inputs and fertilizers, crop rotation, cover cropping and natural insect
control. You yield the best vegetables when you have great soil, so we invest heavily back into the
soil.

Cattle have always been a part of our lives, and we pride ourselves on having the highest quality of
beef available. Our cattle are raised without the use of hormones, or any growth steroids. We
believe pasture feeding with some all natural grain, makes just the right flavor in beef. We are
licensed to sell beef, pork and chicken by the state of North Carolina. We are very pleased to
provide our friends, neighbors, family and you with great quality of meats.

We offer vacuum packed frozen beef, pork and chicken for sale on our farm. Also available is
custom cut to order 1/4, 1/2 or whole beef or half or whole hog. Our cattle are left out on pasture and
given some natural quality feed, for just the right flavor. Our cattle are raised on pasture, and not
confined in a feed lot. Our hogs are provided to us by a local farmer who is very dedicated to
producing a healthy natural grown hog. We have two options on our chicken. We offer certified
organic chicken from a North Carolina farm or an all natural chicken, raised in North Carolina. Both,
of course, are not raised using any growth hormones or antibiotics! We sell at two local farmers
markets and we also offer a Meat CSA.

When you choose North Fork Farm local meats, you're supporting North Carolina family farmers and
their rural communities. We offer the best antibiotic and hormone free meat and with sustainable
farming. We know that when you do the right things you get the right results. For us that means our

Sunset Farms is a multi-generational sustainable family farm located in Southern Alamance County,
NC. Gary and Wanda Murray began the direct marketing of produce in the Chapel Hill area in the
early 1980′s. Since that time our operation has grown to provide a wide array of seasonal
vegetables and fruits, beef and pastured poultry.

Chris, Gary and Wanda's son, recently returned to the farm with his wife Jamie Brie to partner with
Gary in the management of day to day operations. We are proud to be called farmers and to grow
the finest foods we can for our customersWe strive to farm in a way that is environmentally
sustainable. We employ cover crops to add organic matter to our soils and prevent erosion. We
utilize a crop and livestock rotation sequence that builds soil fertility naturally. We use few, if any,
sprays to control insects, instead relying on natural insect predators and crop rotation. All of these
practices enhance our farm for us and future generations.

We grow a variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables including strawberries, tomatoes, squash,
pepper, eggplant, corn, okra, melons, herbs, beans, onions, potatoes, arugula, lettuce and many
more. This produce is harvested frequently and sold fresh through the Carrboro and Durham
Farmers' Markets as well as our CSA.

We produce both pastured egg layers and pastured broiler chicken. Our hens range within portable
netting and roost and lay eggs in a portable coop or "Egg Mobile." Our broilers are kept in floorless
pens and rotated to fresh forage daily. Our birds are given all the fresh green grass they can eat,
along with non-antibiotic, hormone free feeds. All of this ensures meat and eggs full of flavor and
nutrition. Our hens are fed 100% organic grains which are milled locally. This means a far superior
egg, and nothing GMO in their diets.

We provide beef that is 100% grass fed with no added hormones of any kind. Producing beef in this
way ensures a superior tasting product that is better for you and the environment.

We are a small farm in progress. We are going into our 4th year growing and selling at farmers
markets. We produce naturally-grown vegetables, cut flowers, and pastured chicken for meat. While
not certified organic, we raise all of our products under organic principles.


The vegetables, which are sold primarily through the farm's CSA program and area farmers
markets, are available March through December. The chicken is generally available from April to
Thanksgiving and is sold from the farm whole and in parts. Customers hoping to pick up chicken at a
specific time should call and place an order at least two weeks ahead, as the chickens are sold at
two local farmers' markets and availability will vary.


Roaming out on pasture, the chickens only receive a small amount of grain as grasses and insects
compose the basis of their diet.

Wild Onion Farms is a small sustainable farm in northern Johnston County. The farm was
established in 2005, on what was formerly part of an old tobacco farm. I grow a wide variety of
produce and culinary herbs. I also raise pastured laying hens and heirloom tomato plants. The farm
is a little over 7 acres. About 2 acres are cultivated for produce each year. Another 2 acres of the
farm are wooded, with the remaining areas left fallow or sown to cover crops for soil restoration.

I grow everything on the farm using strict organic methods. I do not use chemical fertilizers,
herbicides, pesticides or other poisonous sprays. Soil fertility is built through the use of cover crops,
compost, and pastured poultry.

Avillion Farm, originally established in the Wake County town of Apex in 1995, moved in 2008 to
larger facilities in the farm-friendly town of Efland in Northern Orange County.

Our farm is home to Shetland sheep, Angora goats and Angora Rabbits. We offer quality livestock,
washed and raw fleeces, roving for spinning, and yarns and felting fabric produced from the fiber of
our own livestock.

Our philosophy is that the well being of the animals comes first. This is why I strongly emphasize
preventive, low input approaches to animal health and offer a written guarantee on the health of all
animals sold.

My goal is to produce food and fiber in as sustainable a manner as possible. To this end, our aim is
a pasture-based system of management for our sheep and goats. We practice integrated parasite
management, i.e. managed grazing, use of the FAMACHA system to determine when to treat for
parasites, use of organic wormers whenever possible and use of synthetic wormers only when
absolutely necessary. Our rabbits, sheep and goats are never treated with hormones and antibiotics
are only used to treat actual illnesses based on veterinary advice. Our manure management plan
consists of both conventional composting of sheep and goat manure/hay and vermicomposting of
rabbit manure.

Our farm is part of the Voluntary Scrapie Free Certification Program (NC Flock No. 17) and we
achieved certified status in 2008. Our goat flock is test negative for CAE and our sheep flock is test
negative for OPP. We are also members of the Goodness Grows in North Carolina Program.

Beef at Baldwin Family Farms is Animal Welfare Approved.

The Baldwins have been farming for nearly forty years in the piedmont region of North Carolina.
They purchased their first Charolais heifers in 1969, and have been building their herd - and their
genetics - ever since. The Baldwins originally started as breeders, but “quite by accident” got into
raising grassfed beef when they decided to market surplus stock themselves. The feedback was so
good they decided to start a business selling grassfed beef. They have honed their skills both as
breeders and beef producers, and now supply area grocery stores, restaurants, farmers markets
and online shopping. As a veteran farmer, V. Mac has this to say to beginners:

  Go to school, rent a farm, then do it-but keep your day job. If you farm long enough and well
enough, you can't afford to keep your day job any more.

The Baldwins decided to certify their farm “Animal Welfare Approved” because they noticed a
growing interest in farm animal welfare among their customers. “You will not believe how many
emails and phone calls we get regarding how the animals are treated,” says V. Mac. The Animal
Welfare Approved seal is an assurance to consumers that the Baldwin's cattle have been treated
according to the highest welfare standards. In addition to becoming Animal Welfare Approved, V.
Mac was selected as the 2008 North Carolina winner of the Swisher Sweets/Sunbelt Expo
Southeastern Farmer of the Year Award. He has also been appointed President of the North
Carolina Forage and Grassland Council, an association with more than 500 members across the
state. The Baldwins are a welcome addition to the Animal Welfare Approved program and a model
for other farmers across the nation.

At Balltown Bee Farm, we specialize in unadulterated local honey. Pure, raw and natural, our honey
undergoes minimal straining and no heating. This is honey the way the bees made it. We also sell
shiitake mushrooms and vegetables and plants. Balltown Bee Farm is home to about 25 hives of
honeybees and their caretakers, Kelley Penn and Quintin Ellison.


The apiary-a fancy word for a bee yard-is about four miles outside of Bryson City on Lower Lands
Creek, and is bordered on three sides by the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The farm's
name is taken from the community where it is situated. The honeybees at Balltown Bee Farm make
two types of honey, wildflower and sourwood.


In the spring, they produce wildflower, a honey that is dominated by the rich flavor of tulip poplar
interspersed with locust, blackberry and more. The result is a honey perfect for either table use or
baking. In the late summer, the bees make sourwood, the signature honey of the southern
Appalachians.


Many people consider sourwood the best tasting honey in the world. Sourwood trees, which grow
most abundantly in this part of Western North Carolina, are a member of the heath family and a



                                                                                                  Page 84

heavy producer of nectar. Sourwood honey is clear, light and sweet, with a pleasant aftertaste.


We pack honey two different ways, strained or with comb, which is called chunk honey. To strain we
use an extractor that spins the honey out of the comb using centrifugal force, and then we pour it
through mesh to remove bits of wax. Chunk honey is what your grandmother and grandfather
enjoyed. It includes the comb, which can be eaten or removed.

Our vision for Beausol Gardens & Sanctuary is to provide healthy produce and beautiful flowers to
our local community and to offer companionship on the journey towards wholeness and health
based on respectful relationship with farm, family and community.

Our farm is built around relationships within the world. We believe that by observing the complex
interconnectedness of nature and the wisdom inherent within its structure, we may learn the best
ways to nourish the bodies and souls of our community.

Our programs include our farm, Beausol Gardens, which provides produce and flowers grown using
sustainable organic and biodynamic principles and methods and Beausol Sanctuary, which provides
spirit-centered counseling within the natural surroundings of our farm.

Through our educational program, we also offer opportunities to learn about our small-scale
vegetable and flower production through internships and educational tours.

Beausol Gardens, the farm, is a member of our family and we are an integral symbiotic part of its
physical thriving. We hold this relationship while also remembering that the people in our lives are
each inherently sacred. We believe that we are all here to support and benefit each other, which is
part of our view of sustainability.

Braeburn Farms pasture-raises grass-fed and finished Devon cattle. The Red Devon is a very old
breed of cattle originally from Southwestern England. They have long been a popular choice for
both milk and meat.


The meat is well marbled and tender, and the milk is high in butterfat and milk solids. Here at
Braeburn Farm we have a watering system that enables us to water the cows with clean, fresh water
in all their pastures and keep them out of the streams and ponds.


This results in healthier riparian areas -- better water quality, less erosion on banks, etc. It also
results in healthier cows because they do not have to drink contaminated water. We pride ourselves
on being ecologically sound, but that doesn't mean we don't embrace some of the latest technology.
Through the use of ultrasound, we can determine which cows will have tender meat and which will
be tough. Only the most tender, choice meat is offered for sale.

Produces Animal Welfare Approved pork.

Carlton and Adam Brewer raise pastured Animal Welfare Approved hogs in Wilson, North Carolina.
The Brewers are part of the NC Natural Hog Growers Association, a cooperative of independent
family farmers who are all certified by Animal Welfare Approved. The group supplies a variety of
area restaurants and retailers with high-quality pasture-raised pork. Pigs at Brewer Farm are raised
outdoors, on pasture or range, and get to root, forage and play as they are naturally inclined to do.
Animal Welfare Approved certification is proof that the Brewers' hogs are raised according to the
highest welfare standards.

North Carolina has a long history of pork production, and before the rise of industrial farming pigs
were typically raised outside. This Renaissance of pasture-based farming is contributing to the
growing culinary appreciation of pastured pork. Pastured pork is essential to true, traditional North
Carolina barbecue, one of the signature dishes of the state.

Cane Creek and Braeburn Farms merged in 2007, and are a special home for unique breeds of pigs
and cattle, as well as an ever-expanding family of goats, chickens, turkeys, sheep, donkeys and
ducks. Our animals are rotated continuously through pastures and woods, an ethical way to raise
livestock that minimizes our need to medicate them, and helps assure healthy animals. Healthy
animals lead to healthy food for our customers, food which happens to have incredible flavor. Help
support local and sustainable farms in the Piedmont and promote our local economy!

Our farming practices differ from those of our large scale counterparts in almost every way. Cane
Creek is a family owned farm and practices sustainable agriculture - rotating crops and animals to
keep the soil (incredibly) healthy and to keep the animals on fresh forage. Our animals are never
kept in confinement and have free range to graze, root, and wallow. The pigs always have access to
fresh water and are either hand-fed or have free access to grain-based food, supplemented with
everything from garden clippings in the spring and summer to pumpkins and peanuts in the fall.
Sheep, cows, and goats are all entirely grass-fed, and our feed never has antibiotics or animal
by-products. Cane Creek's sows give birth as they would in the wild - by making a nest and raising
their piglets without human interference.

The best way to reach us is by email. We are usually out and about taking care of our animals and
gardens, so our phone is only checked once or twice a day.

Over 500 acres of creeks, pastures, and woods make up Cane Creek and Braeburn Farms (Wells
Branch LLC). After the farms joined in 2007, the owners set about creating a special home for
unique breeds of pigs and cattle, as well as an ever-expanding family of goats, chickens, turkeys,
sheep, donkeys and ducks. The animals are rotated continuously through pastures and woods.
This is an ethical way to raise livestock and minimizes the need to medicate them, which helps
assure healthy animals. Healthy animals lead to healthy food for customers, food which happens to
have incredible flavor. This is why many area restaurants use Cane Creek Farm products. Come
out to the farm and visit the bountiful gardens, playful animals, and the conservation easement
along Wells Branch teeming with wildlife. Help support local and sustainable farms in the Piedmont

The mission of Carolina Heritage Vineyards is to deliver sustainably-grown fruit and honey bee
products which are reasonably priced and promote a healthy environment and lifestyle for all
involved - our neighbors, our customers and ourselves.


Carolina Heritage Vineyards was established in 2005 on a farm three miles east of Elkin on Highway
268 in the middle of the Yadkin Valley Viticultural Area (AVA.)


With a commitment to organic viticultural practices, varieties of grapes were chosen to be planted
which grow natively in this region and/or are the most disease and insect resistant. Eight acres have
been planted to date in Muscadines (Noble, Doreen, and Carlos) and American varietals and
hybrids (Cynthiana, Rubiana (GR-7) and Traminette.) In addition 1.5 acres of blueberries have been
planted which are being actively pollinated by the bees from our first bee hives.


We sell organically-grown Muscadine and American grapes and blueberries, wines and mead.

Celebrity Dairy, we follow time-honored French farmstead techniques to transform our milk into fresh
goat cheese, or chevre. Its taste is inextricably tied to its place of origin - our particular herd of
Alpine and Saanen goats, their forage unique to our farm's pasture and woods, the Piedmont's
gentle seasons, and our evolving skill in transforming the continuously changing milk into a delicate
fresh chevre. Simply put, Celebrity Dairy chevre is an honest expression of ourselves, and our farm,
and our place in time - our "terroir".
Like many specialty farm products, our cheese is fragile, and suffers from the abuses of shipping.



                                                                                                 Page 101
north carolina guide: farmers

We honor our cheese's distinctive qualities by selling locally, thereby allowing us to hand deliver
directly to our customers at local farm markets, area restaurants that proudly feature it on their
menus, and select local grocery stores.
None of this occurs in a vacuum: We're an integral part of Chatham County's vigorous and growing
low impact, sustainable agriculture community that produces high quality seasonal farm products in
and for our Piedmont region. We encourage and advise other cheesemakers in North Carolina, and
work with the NC Ag Extension Service on conserving small family farms, and College of Veterinary
Medicine with small ruminant science.
On a broader scale, we support the American Cheese Society, American Institute of Wine and Food,
and the Slow Foods movement. If you're in the area, please enjoy our cheese. If you live elsewhere,
seek out and support your local farmers and farm markets.
In addition to our specialty cheeses, we offer pasture-raised chickens and eggs onsite and at local
farmers' markets. We also have goat kids for sale in the late winter and spring. Our wheat free
bakery produces wheat and dairy free baked goods for the farm, inn, and local markets. Call to ask
about catering options. Agri-tourism opportunities are throughout the year. Please call for details.

chapelhillcreamery@southerncheese.com

Chapel Hill Creamery is a small dairy farm and farmstead cheese making facility. We chose Jersey
cows for their rich milk, which makes great cheese. Our cows spend their time on pasture, and
we've established an intensive rotational grazing system to ensure that they'll have access to high
quality grass during their milking season. We milk and make cheese from March through December,
when our pasture, and therefore our milk, are best. No external milk ever enters the farm. Cheeses
include fresh mozzarella, Carolina Moon and New Moon (both Camembert cheeses), Hickory Grove
(a fresh raw milk cheese), feta, fresh quark, and a fresh farmers' cheese. Cheeses are available for
purchase from farmers' markets in Carrboro, Raleigh, and Durham and at various natural food
outlets and restaurants throughout the area. Cheeses are not sold from the farm.

The dairy cows are raised out on pasture and are never supplemented with unnecessary growth
hormones or routine antibiotics. Antibiotics will be administered if an animal falls ill, but milk is
continually tested for residues before a cow is returned to production. The creamery also raises a
limited amount of pastured pork. The hogs are raised in much the same way as the dairy cows, out
on pasture/woodlands, fed an all-natural feed, and never supplemented with hormones or
antibiotics. Pork is usually sold by the half.

In 2007, when Anna Mann and her husband Thad had “maxed out” their urban garden in Raleigh,
North Carolina, they bought 16 acres in the country outside of Winston-Salem and began a farm.
Anna has a background as a plant scientist, but now her days are consumed with caring for their
daughter, who was born a year after their move, and managing the farm, including their Animal
Welfare Approved laying chickens and pigs.

Chestnut Ridge Farm's pasture-raised chicken breeds include Cuckoo Maran, Americana and
Plymouth Rock. Their flock of layers hatch their own chicks and are able to peck and scratch on
grass. Their Hereford and Large Black hogs are also raised on pasture, allowing them to carry out
their natural behaviors, rooting in the earth and bedding in deep straw at night. Farming using these
high-welfare, sustainable practices was Anna's intention when establishing Chestnut Ridge. She
applied for Animal Welfare Approved certification because she knew how strict the standards were.
“Animal welfare is the most important thing we do; it's the biggest priority on our farm. It's really good
to have something tangible to show my customers that I'm doing what I say. They can see that I get
audited, my processor gets audited, my hogs are sourced from an audited farm.” Her customers
have responded to this assurance: “Being able to give them the [Animal Welfare Approved]
brochure and send them to the website is great. I've had customers return and say they were really
impressed.”

It is Anna's ultimate goal to have an integrated livestock-orchard system, which will include their
young chestnut, apple and pear trees.

Esta and Murray Cohen raise Animal Welfare Approved laying chickens at Cohen Farm in Pittsboro,
NC. Their motto is, “Take care of the land, and the land will take care of you”- a philosophy that
certainly shows through in everything they do on the farm.

Murray majored in Agriculture at Southern Illinois University. He wanted to be a farmer, but he was
determined that his operation should be run organically. In 1971 when he and Esta purchased
Cohen Farm, there was not a single other organic farm in their county. Since then, they have
managed their 220 acres without ever having used herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, pesticides,
growth hormones, or any unnecessary antibiotics, proving that humane treatment of animals
coupled with organic, sustainable practices is a viable and successful way of land stewardship.

The Cohen's Animal Welfare Approved laying chickens are truly free range; they enjoy unlimited
access to the open air, pasture and sunshine. Their forage sites are also rotated so that they benefit
from the most abundant fields, and fertilize the soil around the farm in return.

Creekside Farms is a small family operated farm located just North of Mt. Pleasant, NC. Our farm
was started for the simple reason to provide much of our own food and raise our future children
around a farming environment so they would grow up with a strong understand of where food comes
from. We offer naturally raised, antibiotic free beef, pork, chicken and eggs. Our goals are simple: to
raise animals the way nature intended and to provide our customers will a superior product both in
taste and nutrition.

Our beef and pork is available by inidual cuts or by the whole or half animal. We strive to raise
animals the way they were meant to be raised. That means outside grazing on lush pastures or
simple rooting around and rolling in the mud.
 Both our beef and pork are packaged by a USDA Federally inspected facility and vacuum sealed in
clear plastic for extra protection in the freezer.



                                                                                                Page 109

At Creekside Farms our chickens are raised on pasture. All chickens are provided access to grass

much happier chickens.

appointment to purchase our products or take a farm tour. We would love to have you and your kids
visit the farm and get a better feel of exactly where your food comes from. Please call or email to

Creeksong Farm has been selling produce using organic methods at the Watauga County Farmers'
Market since 1979. At that time, few people were concerned about the presence of chemicals in
their food, but Jeff and Bettie Thomas, who founded Creeksong Farm, were determined to grow
food in a sustainable and healthy manner.
Returning to the farm after college, their son Will Thomas has continued the tradition, expanding the
farm operation to include a natural beef operation with Angus cattle and a sustainable timbering
plan.
Creeksong Farm can be found at the Watauga County Farmers' Market at The Horn in the West in
Boone, North Carolina every Saturday morning from the beginning of May until the end of October.
Early in the season, we have many plants, including herbs of all varieties and many types of tomato
plants. Overall, we grow approximately 150 varieties of vegetables, flowers and herbs on 4 acres of
land. Creeksong Farm also sells eggs from our free range chickens and humanely raised beef from
our angus steers. Come early for the best selection!

Our hogs have never had their wolf teeth broken out, their tails docked, or their noses ringed, and
are on pasture 365 days per year. The boar is not kept isolated, and all animals have access to
sunshine, shade, creeks and mud. Our hogs have a wonderful life, and are not loaded or unloaded
using hot zappers, or other cruel methods. We do not give our livestock antibiotics, or animal
byproducts. Our heritage breed hogs thrive outdoors on pasture and are slow grown with twice daily
grainings, as well as supplemented with fruits & vegetables, creating lean and delicious meat for
our family and yours.



Our farm is Animal Welfare Institute approved!

Crosscreek Farm produces Animal Welfare Approved pork and cows' milk.

Colette Nester owns and operates Crosscreek Farm in North Carolina. Under the Animal Welfare
Approved label she raises Jersey cows as well as heritage breed hogs. Colette is committed to
producing food that has not been given artificial growth hormones or non-therapeutic antibiotics, and
her pork is always the freshest lean meat. She believes that healthy food raised on pasture is vital
for people to maintain their own well-being, and that this symbiosis between her farm and her
community is a natural and important part of life. She explains, “This farm has been in our family for
over 100 years, and we are continuing the tradition while offering a more holistic farming practice.”

The holistic approach used at Crosscreek Farm encompasses all stages of the animals' lives - and
this made the farm easily compatible with Animal Welfare Approved's high-welfare standards. Their
hogs and cows are raised outdoors, able to roll in the mud and eat grass, and are never transported
using abusive techniques. Neither the cattle nor hogs are physically mutilated, which means no tail
docking, nose rings, or de-horning. By using sustainable, humane farming Colette is ensuring her
animals' well-being, and providing the highest quality product to her community; everyone benefits
and Colette is able to continue pursuing her passion for farming.

David Whitman raises Animal Welfare Approved hogs on David L. Whitman Farm in Kenansville,
NC. David started farming when he was 14 years old. He now lives on and tends the farm where he
grew up. “I wouldn't want to be anywhere else,” he says.

Currently on the farm David has about 130 hogs of Hampshire, Duroc, Farmer's hybrid, and
Yorkshire breeds. He is proud that he raises his pigs in their own natural environment, with green
stuff to forage on, and mud puddles to play in. Occasionally in the winter even David will join in the
fun. He'll bring out his hockey stick and a few sweet gum-tree balls and skate over the frozen
puddles.

David says the way he raises his hogs--the farming practices which AWA supports and
certifies--“could all be put under one heading, and that's ‘Common Sense'.” Spending their lives
outdoors, David's pigs live off of the fresh air, sunshine and fresh food that nature provides and give
back to the earth nutrients and minerals that maintain the health of the farm's soil. It is a truly
symbiotic, natural, and sustainable relationship from which the environment, the animals, and the
consumer all benefit.

David is a member of the North Carolina Natural Hog Growers Association, a cooperative of AWA
pastured pork growers. Pork from the NCNHGA is available at select Whole Foods Markets and is
also served at The Pit, an authentic barbeque restaurant in Raleigh, NC

We are a family farm committed to environmentally friendly farming, with a multi-generational view of
being faithful stewards of our family farm.

We have invested heavily in the intrastructure of our land, fencing off rivers and ponds, and
providing well water in each paddock to allow us to practice management intensive grazing, moving
our cows regularly to allow our pastures long periods of rest. We have selected cattle that finish well
on grass, taking advantage of the Senepol breed, which have a high resistance to insects and thrive
on fescue pasture, and angus-hereford brood cows to take advantage of hybrid vigor, to allow us to
produce natural, healthy beef directly from our farm to your table.

We sell by the quarter, half, and whole in order to be very competitive on price. So you get the best
of both worlds, grass fed beef produced lovingly by a local family farm, and a price at the fraction of
organic beef. Grassfed beef's health benefits will exceed organic.

This Animal Welfare Approved farm sells AWA lamb.

East Fork Farm is a pasture-based sheep farm run by Stephen Robertson and his wife Dawn in the
mountains of North Carolina. They use no hormones and finish sheep entirely on grass. Medication
is only used when necessary and sheep are regularly rotated to fresh pasture to ensure that they
are getting the best nutrition possible. Stephen eased into farming from his previous work as a
software engineer. On why he decided to pursue farming, Stephen says, “It's something I really
wanted to do. I like physical labor, being outside, and working with my hands.”

He also enjoys the diversity that farming offers - there is no “typical” day. Having come from a
farming background, Stephen has seen the profession change over the years. When he was
growing up, he helped with tobacco cultivation, and some of his family raised vegetables for the
farmer's market. He sees the future of farming as learning to cultivate smaller niche markets and to
make the farm's offerings as diverse as possible. East Fork Farm also works with an association of
area sheep farmers, all of whom bear the Animal Welfare Approved seal. Having the Animal Welfare
Approved seal can be especially useful in working with a farmer group, as it provides a common
standard by which all the animals are raised. East Fork Farm can be found at the Asheville City
Market and various local restaurants.

Flying Cloud Farm, managed by Annie Louise and Isaiah Perkinson, produces vegetables, fruits,
and flowers for local markets. All produce grown on the farm is sold directly to people at local
farmers markets, through our 100 member CSA, at our self-service roadside stand, and through
‘you-pick'. The farm is located approximately twelve miles outside of Asheville on route 74A in the
last valley before the road climbs the mountain to Henderson County. Isaiah and Annie have been
farming the land for about nine years, with an active CSA for six years. The land is rich bottom land,
which was used for hayfields for a long time before the produce operation began taking over fields
for veggies.Annie is the eldest grandchild of Jamie and Elspie Clarke, who managed Hickory Nut
Gap Farm, which is adjacent to Flying Cloud, for many years, as Elspie's parents did before them.
Now the farm is managed by our cousins the Agers who can be found through
HickoryNutGapFarm.net.

How We Farm: Our farming practices rely on cover cropping, amending the soil with OMRI (Organic
Materials Review Institute) approved minerals and fertilizers, annual soil testing, crop rotation,
beneficial insect habitat, and careful planning for insect and weed issues. At this point the land is not
certified organic, although we follow the OMRI rules at all times. We have been certified organic in
the past, however, when the certification switched from a North Carolina agency to the USDA, the
cost increased substantially. We realized that we are primarily direct marketing, giving us immediate
contact with the people who are eating our food. This gives folks a chance to ask us any pressing
questions, and visit the farm if necessary. At this point we are doing virtually no wholesale
distribution of our produce, which would require us to be certified.

Farm Raised Pork For Sale: We raise 10 pigs annually on our farm to eat all our yummy vegetable
scraps, root up areas that need to be re-seeded, and provide companionship. Yes, they are cute
with great personalities. Our baby pigs come from Warren Wilson College and are never treated with
antibiotics or growth hormones. They are raised outside with access to fresh weeds, fresh air, and
good mudholes. The pigs need to roll around in the mud to cover their skin so they won't get
sunburnt! We also feed them grain from the local feed and seed. The meat is available by the cut at
market, or for larger amounts and a wholesale price from the farm.

Farm Raised Beef For Sale: My brother, William, and Mom manage a small herd of cows, with our
help when needed, for family meat. This year we have 5 young steers that will be prime to butcher,
so we will have some additional grass-fed beef available at the farmer's markets and to our CSA
customers.

Produces Animal Welfare Approved beef and pork.

Jamie and Amy Ager run Hickory Nut Gap Farm in Fairview, NC. Jamie and Amy met while
attending Warren Wilson College in nearby Swannanoa, an institution known for its emphasis on
sustainable agriculture. After graduating, the Agers decided to start a farm specializing in grassfed
and pastured meats on land belonging to Jamie's family. Their farm has now been in operation for
more than ten years. With the help of their three boys, the couple continues to raise Animal Welfare
Approved pigs and beef cattle in the rolling hills of Western North Carolina.

The land of Hickory Nut Gap Farm is jointly owned by the six children of James and Elspeth Clarke.
Many family members and extended family members are involved in the operation of Hickory Nut
Gap Farm as a whole and some, like Jamie and Amy, have begun their own enterprises. In the
spring of 2009, a permanent conservation easement was placed on the farm's 350 acres of working
farmland. This easement will preserve the integrity of Hickory Nut Gap Farm as a working farm for
all generations to come.

Each year Hickory Nut Gap Farm opens its doors for an annual fall farm celebration, featuring farm
tours, a pumpkin patch and more. For more information visit www.hickorynutgapfarm.com.

grassfedbeef@nc.rr.com
http://www.hogansbeef.com/

Hogan's Magnolia View Farm has been managed by the same family for over 200 years. The
current farmers, Robert and Ann Hogan, raise grass-fed cattle out on pasture year-round and offer
the beef in a range of cuts straight from the farm.

The cattle are a Hereford/Red Devon cross. Red Devon cattle, a heritage breed that originated in
New Zealand, are known for their ability to efficiently utilize grass and other forages, quickly
converting the fiber to muscle. In fact, in Britain, Red Devons are called "the Beef Breed Supreme at
Grass." As a result of all the fiber, many grass-fed meats can be tough and especially lean and
feature an herbal taste. Not so for Red Devons. Their unique efficiency on grass also brings a
unique, less herbal flavor to a meat that's less lean and easier to cut and chew.

Robert is a professional farmer. He graduated with a degree in Animal Husbandry from NC State
and is a registered farmer with the state of North Carolina. All beef from Hogan Magnolia View Farm
is processed at a state registered facility.

The beef is entirely grass-fed; the cattle are not finished on grain. Beef is sold packaged and frozen
from the farm and is available year-round. Customers can call or email anytime to place an order.

Humbug Farm was established in 1993. The name is a play on sheep (as in baaaa humbug!).
Since its beginning the farm has grown in both livestock and acreage.

Humbug Farm raises Border Leicester sheep for show and sale. Of course, by-products such as
wool, lamb, and finished goods from their renewable fleeces are also available.

Humbug Farm also raises Nubian and Saanen dairy goats for milk. I've fallen in love with
cheesemaking. Currently, I am experimenting with flavored chevre. I do make some savory flavors,
but I'm having fun expanding my line of fruit flavored chevre. It's great used on sandwiches in place
of mayonnaise.

Farming on a small scale (less than 50 acres) is far from an exact science. Seasons, weather,
current sales, breeding time and coyotes all cause product availability to change from week to week.

Raises Animal Welfare Approved beef cattle. Beef available directly from farm by appointment.

Farmer Jim Dykes came to farming by way of the medical profession- or rather, by way out of it.
Dykes left his medical practice after 30 years to farm. He explained simply: “Farming is also
healing.” He continued, “I still do my ‘morning rounds' - only now I'm looking after animals instead of
people.”

Dykes' Hundred Acre Wood Farm and Sanctuary is a diverse mix of hardwood forest and permanent
pasture. Dykes raises Animal Welfare Approved Dexter cattle, selected because of their multiple
uses for meat, dairy and draft labor. He started with one cow. Now he is selling beef and expanding
the grassfed herd, which numbers nine. With the help of his wife Catherine, as well as farmer Adam
Pyburn, Jim also has developed gardens, orchards, and hiking trails. He has added a draft horse,
pastured chickens, goats, and hogs. He also practices sustainable forestry and uses a small sawmill
to turn timber into lumber needed for building projects on the farm.



                                                                                                 Page 151
north carolina guide: farmers


The importance of sustainable, pasture-based agriculture to overall human and environmental
health is an important concept to Dykes: “Animal confinement operations have created an epidemic
of illness in our country. Doctors have been far too quiet on the impact of industrial agriculture on
human health.” On the decision to become Animal Welfare Approved, Dykes explained, “I think
keeping the animal's welfare in mind is changing the way we raise animals, and changing the way
we buy food. I think as we become more mindful of caring for the earth's non-human communities,
we will become a happier, healthier species ourselves.”

Produces Animal Welfare Approved pork.

Jack Ward's farm has been in his family since the late 1800s. Like his farmer father before him, Jack
raises pastured Yorkshire, Hampshire and Berkshire pigs, as well as row crops on 350 acres in
Seven Springs, North Carolina.

After ten years without hogs on the farm, Jack missed raising pigs and wanted to add more
profitability to the farm. He is proud that he raises his pigs naturally, providing them with high-quality
feed and raising them without the use of antibiotics or hormones. His choice to raise Animal Welfare
Approved pastured pork was a choice to invest in a future in which his sons, Daniel and Jimmy,
could make a living on the family farm and people can make better choices about the food they eat.
“It would make me feel better to walk into a store and buy meat with the AWA seal,” says Jack. “It
gives some piece of mind.”

Like many farmers, it's a challenge to meet production costs, but Jack hopes that his sons, who
work on the farm with him, will choose the hard work required to keep the family business running.

Produces Animal Welfare Approved chicken eggs.

Bob Kellam and Susan Wyatt run Kellam-Wyatt Farm in Raleigh, North Carolina with the help of
their daughter Leewyn and two students from NC State University. The couple met while working for
the Environmental Protection Agency, and after thirty-year careers decided to retire and begin
farming the land that had been in Bob's family for generations.

Specializing in produce and pastured laying hens, Bob and Susan sell primarily through the farmers'
market and a small CSA which includes many of their former colleagues. Their work in
environmental protection has given them a special appreciation for the importance of sustainable
farming methods, which they have been using since the 1970s.

Susan explains the decision to certify their laying flock Animal Welfare Approved as one of
education for themselves and their customers, saying, “We really care about our animals and want
to take the best care possible. We saw AWA as a source of information as well as an endorsement
of our practices.” The farm's diverse flock of Araucanas, Rhode Island Reds and White Leghorns
ranges freely, pecking, scratching and foraging the way chickens do best! This pasture-based
management results in tasty, nutritious eggs that have become a favorite among Bob and Susan's
loyal customers.

Haywood and Retha Leigh operate a small family farm near Jamesville, North Carolina. Jamesville
is a sleepy farming community near the beautiful waters of the Albemarle Sound and the Roanoke,
Cashie, and Chowan rivers.

legacy of family farms. He cultivates a variety of grains and hays used to produce feeds on the farm,
and his goal is to “raise premium meats that are reasonably priced, well cared for, and healthy.”
The Leigh family believes in environmental stewardship, and is dedicated to producing the “quality
meats our families expect and deserve.”

the few farms that remain in Mecklenberg County in Charlotte, NC.

The Helms' are especially proud of the care they take in manicuring their property. The beauty and
quality of their farm is a main focus for them. In their spare time, Jerry and Sue enjoy spending

for their grandkids to track the growth and progress of the calves as they get older.

Before Jerry's first two careers, he was an avid basketball player and fan both in high school and
college. Now a favorite pastime for the Helms' is to watch college basketball with their kids and
grandkids as a family. And they're definitely UNC Tar Heel fans!

Carolina using pasture rotation, mob grazing and environmental conservation practices. Working
with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), the Teagues are careful stewards of the
land and take great pride in their farm. It all began in 1867 when Ronnie's great-great grandfather,
Christopher Teague, purchased 80 acres and began farming. The farm was then passed down
through the generations and run as a mixed livestock farm, a dairy farm, and a cow-calf operation.
Ronnie and Pam are now the fifth generation of the Teagues to work the beautiful land located in
historic Snow Camp, and are shifting the focus to raising natural, grassfed beef. While continuing to
evolve they still maintain the traditions of the past, including making molasses - a skill learned from
Ronnie's grandfather, Marion.

In addition to having farming “in the blood,” Little Creek Ranch has also benefited from the expertise
of local extension agents, other farmers and NRCS staff. The Animal Welfare Approved seal is an
added endorsement of the farm's conscientious practices. When Ronnie learned about Animal
Welfare Approved certification he said it was a natural fit: “I felt like we were already doing it - we
didn't have to change much.” Visit http://www.littlecreekranchnc.com/ for more information and to

Maple View Farm is a family dairy farm located in Orange County, North Carolina, just northwest of
Chapel Hill. It is a Holstein dairy farm. A grade "A" milk producer since 1922, Maple View Farm
moved to the present location after selling a five generation dairy farm in Corinna, Maine.

In 1995, the first conservation easement on the farm property was granted to the Triangle Land
Conservancy to insure continuation of the farming and dairy operations. This easement designates
that Maple View Farm land will be used for agricultural purposes or as open land forever.

The Holsteins' diet consists of grass and a custom mix grain. The grain is grown and on the farm
and consists of barley silage (with crimson clover), corn silage, grain (including brewers grain, whole
corn), whole cotton seed and high quality alfalfa hay. Maple View Farm grinds its own grain on the
farm.

The dairy cattle never receive hormones and are only administered antibiotics if they fall ill. Cows
that do receive antibiotics are removed from the herd and are not milked again until antibiotic
residues are undetectable. The dairy cows are not pastured; they live in an open barn on bedding.

Almost all the milk produced on the farm is processed and bottled on-site at Maple View Farm's
bottling operation. Only Maple View Farm milk is bottled on-site. Milk is sold in returnable glass
bottles. Products include whole milk, low-fat milk, skim milk, chocolate milk, buttermilk, and butter.

Maple View Farms also operates three separate stores in the immediate area: Country Store,
located on-site which sells milk, butter, and ice cream; and two ice cream stores, one located in
Hillsborough on Hampton Pointe Blvd and the other in Carrboro on East Weaver Street.

dedicated its work to cultivating the land in Rockingham County. For the last 20 years we have
produced pork, and in the last year we totally totally changed our model to deliver all natural,

Our pigs, lambs and chickens roam on fresh grass, breath mountain air and are never injected or
fed with hormones or additives. We supplement their pasture grazing with locally purchased grain.
Generations of our family currently farm our land so we can provide you with locally grown, quality

Sells Animal Welfare Approved pork.

Matthew Hight is either upholding tradition or bucking convention, but he''s doing something right.
The twenty-three year old Macon, North Carolina native has been farming his whole life, and is
continuing that tradition on land that has been in the family for generations. The Hight family is not
new to pasture-based management, but has witnessed the larger trend towards confinement
operations and market consolidation.

“My family raised hogs on pasture until 1996. Then the bottom fell out of the market, and pork prices
went to 8 cents a pound,” says Matthew. The Hight family took a break from raising pigs for ten
years, until Matthew decided to try it again. He now runs a 20-sow farrow-to-finish operation entirely
on pasture. A new consumer awareness of animal welfare and environmental issues, as well as
taste, has expanded the market for high-welfare livestock and opened new niches.

on grain) and they are never administered hormones, antibiotics, wormers, insect control agents, or
vaccinations. They roam on pasture with constant access to food and water and are handled in such
a way as to minimize stress as much as possible.


Cattle are not slaughtered until beef is ordered. An entire animal must be reserved before going to
processing. Various amounts of meat are generally split up amongst different customers. After
placing their order, customers requesting specific cuts, i.e. ground, steaks, etc., can submit their
requests to Michael who will inform the butcher. It is advised that customers call ahead of time to
inquire about availability. Do not call the-day-of expecting to order and pick up meat.

Mills Garden Herb Farm began twelve years ago. When asked why I chose herbs my answer is "I
think they chose me". Herbs have taught me much about growing and using them.


They are a link to history, literature, music and nature. Historically they were used in cooking,
medicine making, and throughout the entire household; even the aroma is healing. Herbs are
beautiful in the landscape and their presence in the garden is healing for all life and the
environment. The journey continues and the learning too. To be sure, herbs have made my life
more meaningful with a greater appreciation of nature.


Sharing with others through our workshops is a part of Mills Garden Herb Farm. I am so fortunate to
have a sister that is as interested in herbs as I. Jane Abe is a great teacher and a vital part of the
workshops here. We hope that you can all plan to join us.

Moore Farm has been in my family for 95 years and five generations. It is made up of crop land,
wood land, and pasture. We have a small brood cow herd, pigs, meat goats, and laying hens. We
grow corn, soybeans, small grains, and hay.

I enjoy farming, hunting, fishing and spending time with my family. As long as I can remember all I
ever wanted to do is farm. Tagging along with my father as a little boy I began learning the many
lessons in life by growing up on a small farm. Wobbly newborn calves with their mothers, knee high
corn, spring rains, and the smell of fresh cut hay are all Gods creations, and I feel blessed to be part
of it all.

I offer hot and mild breakfast sausage, pork chops and pork ribs direct from the farm. Call or email

Our Mission is...

"To grow high quality fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs using sustainable and educational
practices."

Which means ....

* The "High Quality" is to harvest and deliver fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs to our
customers in a timely manner by using organic farming practices so our products are healthy and
tasty. Our products should taste to our customer as if it just came from their backyard garden.

* The "Sustainable" is to start and grow fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs by conserving natural
resources, keeping the earth healthy by giving back more than is taken during our growing season,
and by allowing beneficial insects and organisms to prosper. Since mountain streams flow through
our farm, our farming practices keep the waterways clean.

* The "Educational" is to share what we learn so others may see farming as a viable career option
and will understand the importance of supporting and preserving family farms from urban sprawl, the
importance of saving heirloom and open pollinated varieties while being able to enjoy fresh and
healthy fruits, vegetables and herbs.

Dale Nelson and his family raise Animal Welfare Approved laying hens and beef cattle in
Wadesboro, North Carolina. Dale grew up on a farm in South Dakota and has been farming since
1955. On the climatic difference between South Dakota and North Carolina Dale says it's like “going
from your freezer to your living room.” Needless to say, he is happy with the move. Dale has also
worked for Caterpillar, Inc., the large equipment manufacturer, which has given him a wealth of skills
that prove useful around the farm.

Nelson Ranch currently maintains a flock of 60 laying hens for their nutritious, tasty, pastured eggs.
A herd of 25 momma cows and their offspring also call the farm home. Dale has been working on
the genetic quality of his cows for a number of years and says, “We pride ourselves on good quality
stock, good bloodlines, and on not just going with fads but with proven lines - and improving upon
those lines.”

Dale's two daughters had a significant impact on his decision to start a pasture-based livestock
operation. “They would beg me to bring them eggs,” he recalls. Dale understood that his daughters
were not alone in their concern about where their food came from, and in their desire to choose
good food. He realized that there was a market for good, clean, high-quality meats and dairy from
pasture-based family farms. Nelson Ranch sought out Animal Welfare Approved certification as a
way to reflect his farm's adherence to those qualities and to address the challenge of transparency
in labeling. “I want to help people understand that they have a choice in the food they eat.” Nelson
Ranch is proud to be on the solution side of our national diet challenges and to produce high quality
food for its community.

Faming since 1993 and certified organic from 1993 up until the USDA took over and the price

this with organic approved inputs and fertilizers, crop rotation, cover cropping and natural insect

Cattle have always been a part of our lives, and we pride ourselves on having the highest quality of

We offer vacuum packed frozen beef, pork and chicken for sale on our farm. Also available is

of course, are not raised using any growth hormones or antibiotics! We sell at two local farmers
markets and we also offer a Meat CSA.

Offers Animal Welfare Approved pork.

The Parkers run a 19-acre diversified farm in Hurdle Mills, N.C. with the help of their four children:
Mandi, Tiffany, Kendall and Martin. Both Renee and Randall grew up on farms, and they now farm
land that has been in Randall's family for many generations. The Parkers recently expanded their
operation to include pastured Animal Welfare Approved pigs for the wholesale market. They are also
raising free-range chickens and beef cattle. At any given time, they have between 60 to 75 Farmer's
Hybrid pigs at different stages of growth to ensure that there is a continuous supply for their market.

Renee says that keeping everyone well watered in drought periods can be challenging, but she is
fortified by her successes. Renee is becoming an expert in her own right, though she has sought the
advice of fellow Animal Welfare Approved farmers Eliza MacLean and Mike Jones, also North
Carolina hog producers. In addition to drawing upon the knowledge of fellow farmers, Renee also
consults with family members and people within her church. Her extension agent, Karen McAdams,
has also played an important role. On the difference between confinement and pasture-based
management, Renee says that the latter is more time- and labor-consuming, but the benefits far
outweigh the extra effort.

Peaceful Meadows Farm, owned and operated by Philip & Sheila Brooks and their son and
daughter-in-law, Jeremy & Laura, is located only 25 miles from the Charlotte city limits in eastern
Union County, N.C. and features gently rolling pastures and rural wooded acreage. Our cattle graze
in a natural setting on healthy free range pastures, rather than crowded feed lots. No pesticides or
commercial fertilizers are ever sprayed on our pastures. We never use hormones, growth enhancers
or antibiotics. Since these cows are grown from birth to finish with their mothers, they tend to be
contented and satisfied.

Peaceful Meadows provides necessary minerals and kelp from organic sources and at no time do
they receive grain. As a result grass fed beef is high in CLA, Omega 3 and Vitamins A & E and
more of the good cholesterol than the bad. Our beef is processed at a USDA facility where it is dry
aged prior to cutting. It is then packaged in vacuum sealed packaging and flash frozen to preserve
flavor and freshness and prolong storage life.

We are now producing quality pasture and woods raised pork. It has good healthy benefits just like

Raises Animal Welfare Approved beef cattle.

Beef available for purchase direct from farm, please call or email for availability.

Polaris Farm has been in Mark Hollar's family since 1962, about the same time that he was born. In
addition to cattle, which his family has always raised, in 2008 Mark began rotating sheep on the
pasture his cattle had grazed to experiment with parasite reduction. Now, cattle and sheep are
managed on Polaris Farm in a controlled grazing system where not only do the sheep eliminate the
cattle's parasites, but the cows do the same for the sheep. Polaris Farm animals are never confined
or given hormones and live their entire lives grazing on pasture.

Having the Animal Welfare Approved certification for his Dorper and Katahdin meat sheep and Black
Angus beef cattle helps Mark educate his customers about the way that ruminants should be raised.
He stresses that “it doesn't need to be done on a feedlot. People see cows standing up to their
bellies in mud and skin and bones—it gives [livestock farming] a bad name. They should have the
choice to purchase food that they know the origin of instead of industrial food of questionable safety
and nutrition—therefore helping keep family farmers on their farms.” Educating the public about the
benefits of pasture-based farming takes time, but Mark is confident that this is the right way to raise
his animals.

Mark employs mob grazing—or what he calls adaptive grazing—in which a large number of animals
are given a specific area to graze where they eat all the plants before moving so that the grazed
area is allowed to rest. This practice has eliminated his need for fertilizers and contributes to the
health of soil to produce more high-quality grasses. This system, which is highly dependent on
weather and rainfall, is hard to do exactly right but helps to contribute to his animals excellent health
and parasite resistance.
Mark runs the farm with the help of his wife, Kathy, a retired school teacher. Call or email them for
information about their grassfed beef or lamb.

Steve and Dianne Proffitt began their grassfed beef operation in 2000 out of a passion for farming
and living close to the land. They have almost 70 head of Scottish Aberdeen/commercial Cross
Angus cattle. Well-suited to forage and also with excellent mothering abilities, the herd thrives on
100% USDA certified organic pastures, without added hormones, and never confined to a feedlot.

The growing farm turned into a full family venture when Steve and Dianne's daughter Shelley and
her husband Brian decided they would like to live a simpler, country lifestyle. They help with the day
to day management of the farm, and their children Dewi and Zoe lend a hand as well. Steve reports
that, "They all love living and working together on the farm."

Everyone on Proffitt Family Farms viewed joining Animal Welfare Approved as an important way to
show the value they place on high-welfare farming. Taking good care of their cattle humanely is at
the core of their operation, and it is exactly why their herd lives out its days on pasture. They
explain, "When we tell our customers about Animal Welfare Approved and our certification they
seem glad to know that such a program exists. The logo is helpful and validates what we tell our
customers. It confirms us as a family farm."

   Our red raspberries are grown without chemical fertilizers or pesticides in double dug French
intensive style beds. They are a prolific locally adapted variety and they bloom twice a year, bearing
fruit in June and September. Our stock came from a man in Hiawassee, Georgia who retrieved the
plants from the woods and propagated the berries years ago. He and the farm are gone now but a
friend saved us the starts—we began our raspberry patch with about a dozen plants in 1995 and
now have about 900 linear feet of 30" wide beds in raspberries. Our berries are pollinated by our
own honeybees and have done well in our well-drained bottomland soil.

 Surrounding the raspberry rows on our farm are an organic vegetable and flower garden,
experimental fruit orchard in which Asian Pears have been our most successful trees, a blueberry
orchard, and a labyrinth surrounded by cherry trees. We have honeybees which produce a
wonderful sourwood honey.

Liza Plaster and her husband William Early raise Animal Welfare Approved dairy goats at Ripshin
Goat Dairy in Lenoir, NC. The farm, which has been in Liza's family for six generations, is located in
the beautiful and historic Happy Valley on the Yadkin River in western North Carolina. At Ripshin,
Liza and William manage a herd of registered ADGA (American Dairy Goat Association) American
Saanen dairy goats- known for their calm demeanor and productivity - using the most humane and
ecological practices. They describe their farm as “multiple generations of goats grazing twenty acres
of woods and pasture, enjoying fresh air and sunshine by day and shelter by night.”

Liza was inspired to start a goat dairy after visiting the historic Carl Sandburg Farm in Flat Rock, NC,
and two small goat dairies in France. Liza's son Jesse, an architect, built their milking parlor and
cheese room with “passive” design principles in mind, so that the dairy buildings make the most use
of natural sunlight and ventilation.

Ripshin Goat Dairy farmstead goat cheeses are sold at farmers' markets in Boone, Blowing Rock
and Hickory, NC, and at a dozen or more area wine shops and restaurants. For the 2011 season
they are crafting fresh chevre, both plain and herbed, feta and farmer's cheeses. To learn more

Raises Animal Welfare Approved beef. On farm sales available by appointment.

Alan and Pam Souther of Rocking S Farm in Piney Creek, North Carolina have enjoyed what Alan
calls a “lifetime of farming.” Previously the couple had been tobacco farmers, but decreased stability
in that market led them to seek out other enterprises. The couple explains their transition as a return
to traditional farming techniques: “We decided to look to the past to assure our farm's future.” Initially
focusing on meat sheep with the help of a RAFI (Rural Advancement Foundation International-USA)
grant, the Southers now specialize in Angus Beef. They also run two organic greenhouses and sell
produce to area markets.

Alan explains his decision to pursue AWA certification as one of common sense - since they were
already following the same practices, why not go ahead with the certification? In addition to the farm
Alan tries to find time to go hunting and fishing, as well as spend time with the four Souther children:
Lacey, Jaye, Karly and Luke. Rocking S Farm rests on 250 hilly acres in Alleghany County, where
24 momma cows and their offspring graze naturally in a true pasture-based system.

Rocking S Farm beef is available at area markets and direct from the farm, visit

Located in western Chatham County, NC, Rocky River Farm is a small-scale, family owned farm
that grows vegetables, fruit, and flowers without the use of chemical pesticides, herbicides, or
synthetic fertilizers. Our goal is to grow the highest quality produce while caring for and managing
the land responsibly.

Some of our current practices include: growing and locally marketing a diversity of crops with over
80 different varieties; using cover crops that fix nitrogen and provide organic matter for the soil; drip
irrigation; composting; and rotating crops through six fields to reduce pests and diseases. These
practices allow the farm to balance a healthy food production system with long- term environmental
sustainability.

Picture
Our vegetables and flowers start from seed in our passive solar greenhouse before being
transplanted to the field. For many years our land was used for hay production, which we continue
to grow and utilize as a weed-suppressing mulch in our beds. In addition to hay, we use woven
weed fabric that also helps warm the soil in the spring.

Our produce is mainly sold retail at two farmers markets, Pittsboro on Thursdays and Raleigh's
Midtown on Saturdays, with some vegetables being marketed wholesale to local restaurants and
caterers.

S&L Farm offers Animal Welfare Approved eggs.

In 2003, Linda Maggio, a former veterinary technician, her husband Steve Kosco and their daughter
Madison moved from New Jersey to North Carolina. They didn”t plan to become farmers, but as
soon as they got a few chickens Linda became fascinated by them and that was that. Within a year
of moving they started S&L Farm.

Linda is very proud of being Animal Welfare Approved and she is also very excited to be awarded
one of the Animal Welfare Approved Good Husbandry Grants, which she and Steve will use to build
their own chick hatchery. Linda and Steve currently have a flock of 70 laying hens that are 100%
free range and raised on pasture. They are very careful about ensuring the best nutrition for her
hens because she believes “you are what you eat,”referring to both the hen''s nutritional health and
that of her customers.

S&L Farm offers a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program.

We grow a wide variety of vegetables and herbs. Crops are planted in succession in order to provide
a continuous weekly supply of mixed vegetables, and we grow them organically - which in a nutshell
means without the use of synthetic fertilizers and pest control - utilizing instead soil building and
integrated cropping techniques, companion planting, and intensive greenhouse production - all of
which help to reduce risk factors for us and our shareholders and which provides multiple benefits to
the soil and the regional environment.

Visitors are welcome to visit and wander the farm freely year-round, 9am to 6pm. (It is a good idea
to give us a quick call or email before you set out though - just to be sure we'll be around to greet
you.

eventually make a living at this.

Currently we have registered Dexter Cattle as well as Katahdin Sheep and mixed breed goats. We
are also starting a small flock of Heritage Turkeys and of course have a few chickens to provide us
with eggs. We chose the name Sunrise Farm as it reflects the daily routine that begins at sunrise as

Sunset Farms is a multi-generational sustainable family farm located in Southern Alamance County,
NC. Gary and Wanda Murray began the direct marketing of produce in the Chapel Hill area in the
early 1980&#8242;s. Since that time our operation has grown to provide a wide array of seasonal
vegetables and fruits, beef and pastured poultry.



                                                                                                  Page 222
north carolina guide: farmers


Chris, Gary and Wanda's son, recently returned to the farm with his wife Jamie Brie to partner with
Gary in the management of day to day operations. We are proud to be called farmers and to grow
the finest foods we can for our customersWe strive to farm in a way that is environmentally
sustainable. We employ cover crops to add organic matter to our soils and prevent erosion. We
utilize a crop and livestock rotation sequence that builds soil fertility naturally. We use few, if any,
sprays to control insects, instead relying on natural insect predators and crop rotation. All of these
practices enhance our farm for us and future generations.

We grow a variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables including strawberries, tomatoes, squash,
pepper, eggplant, corn, okra, melons, herbs, beans, onions, potatoes, arugula, lettuce and many
more. This produce is harvested frequently and sold fresh through the Carrboro and Durham
Farmers' Markets as well as our CSA.

We produce both pastured egg layers and pastured broiler chicken. Our hens range within portable
netting and roost and lay eggs in a portable coop or "Egg Mobile." Our broilers are kept in floorless
pens and rotated to fresh forage daily. Our birds are given all the fresh green grass they can eat,
along with non-antibiotic, hormone free feeds. All of this ensures meat and eggs full of flavor and
nutrition. Our hens are fed 100% organic grains which are milled locally. This means a far superior
egg, and nothing GMO in their diets.

We provide beef that is 100% grass fed with no added hormones of any kind. Producing beef in this
way ensures a superior tasting product that is better for you and the environment.

Just a short drive from the cities in North Carolina's urban crescent, the Inn at Celebrity Dairy invites
you to experience life lived at the pace of a small family farm.

Sheltered on a gentle knoll under 250-year-old oak trees, the Inn is actually two buildings: a modern
Greek Revival farmhouse skirted by wide porches, and the original settler's 1800 log cabin. The
two-story atrium joining the two serves as the farm's gathering room. Surrounding outbuildings attest
to the farm's past and present: the original log hay barn and granary, 1880's smoke house, 1940's
tobacco barns, and most recently - our farmstead goat dairy producing award-winning goat cheese.

We invite you to make yourselves at home. Savor the intense flavors of eggs from our free-range
chickens and other seasonal treats from our kitchen or neighbor's gardens. Dairy mornings start
early, but usually by 8:30 the goats are all milked, the milking parlor washdown completed, and the
day's cheesemaking is started. Time for a sitdown break, and our communal breakfast shared alike
by guests and the farm crew.

Signature ingredients of our breakfast fare include (naturally) our own chevre, and the eggs from our
free range yard chickens. Chevre regularly appears on the table as a soft fresh Montrachet style
cheese, and as a creamy condiment sweetened with fruit preserves. The supporting cast of
fresh-roasted coffee from Counter Culture - who flatter us with our own coffee blend, too many types
of tea, and seasonal fruits and preserves from our neighbors' gardens overflow the table. Open year

Ferguson Farm is an historic farm located in the Shelton Laurel area of Western North Carolina. The

cheeses are "farmstead". In order for a cheese to be classified as "farmstead," as defined by the
American Cheese Society, the cheese must be made with milk from the farmer's own herd, or flock,
on the farm where the animals are raised. All of our "farm pets" are spoiled rotten on a diet of
healthful grain, supplements and free range pastures managed without the use of herbicides or
pesticides. Our farm & dairy is a small scale multi-tasking environment employing local people who

Triple B Farm's mission is to raise livestock in a setting that's as close to nature as possible. By all
accounts, it succeeds. The occasional tractor provides one of the few markings of modernity, as
everything else reflects a bygone agricultural era where nature, not agribusiness, provides most of
the inputs.


All of the animals at Triple B Farm are raised out on pasture. Nothing is caged or confined. The
cattle are rotationally grazed and feast on a diet of grass and nothing else. Once they've moved on
to another patch of fresh grass, the meat chickens and layer hens follow behind, feeding on a
mixture of clover and orchard grasses, bugs, and fresh well water. The hogs fatten themselves on a
pasture and woodlands-based diet.


None of the animals receive any hormones, animal by-products, vaccines, insect control agents,
wormers, or antibiotics. The fields are never sprayed with chemicals and manure is composted and
used as fertilizer.

We are a small farm in progress. We are going into our 4th year growing and selling at farmers
markets. We produce naturally-grown vegetables, cut flowers, and pastured chicken for meat. While
not certified organic, we raise all of our products under organic principles.


The vegetables, which are sold primarily through the farm's CSA program and area farmers
markets, are available March through December. The chicken is generally available from April to
Thanksgiving and is sold from the farm whole and in parts. Customers hoping to pick up chicken at a
specific time should call and place an order at least two weeks ahead, as the chickens are sold at
two local farmers' markets and availability will vary.


Roaming out on pasture, the chickens only receive a small amount of grain as grasses and insects
compose the basis of their diet.

glass re-use brewery in this country. All our bottles can be returned to the brewery for a 35 cent
credit or a $2 credit, depending on the bottle size. We do not recycle glass, we re-use!

We co-op with local family farms and raise only free range hormone free animals. This year we
bought all the grain for our pork farmer and he in tern is raising over 100 hogs for us. We are also
working on a beef arrangement similar to the hog system. Our butchery is a joint venture with a 5th
generation German Master butcher, we make and smoke all our own sausages, bacon, salami and
even prosciutto on site. The goal is to know which local farm each piece of meat came from.

We have a true organic farmer who raises all crops naturally and based on the Rudolf Steiner
principal. We are composting all retail food scraps, meat scraps and brewer's grain together with our
grass clippings as food source for the farm.

We strive to use all our own vegetables and meats, of course also the beer. By the way we are the
only restaurant brewery in the US where we never in 22 years, have sold another beer but our own!

We are bringing in a fully qualified German Master Butcher and a graduate from Turin, who has
been training at the Terra Madre facility. We are also working with Johnson and Wales to create a
culinary intern program, which would give students an opportunity to raise vegetables, make
sausages, smoke meats and fish and then the training would take them to Bavaria to train at the
family butcher's facility there. This is a very different training approach but is essential if we want to
create a sustainable food chain in this country.

Dale and Linda were looking for a retirement venture in 2001 and ended up with a ranch full of
animals and a business based on nature. With a house and lots of land, there was plenty of room
for goats to roam. “We got them just to clear some brush,” says Dale with a grin. The first four
goats, however, were just the beginning.

“It's like any business. You start with one thing and get that on its feet and start another,” said Dale.
As NC Certified Meat Goat Producers, the Kloses had the training and support of many agricultural
resources to help them get started. They soon had a successful meat goat business going and
began to add new additions to the ranch - both in animals and structures. Between building barns,
helping birth baby goats and making the most of the ranch's natural surroundings, Dale and Linda,
who operate the entire farm by themselves, say their marriage of 42 years and counting is based on
teamwork. “It's seven days a week. We joke that we only work in half-days, and half a day is 12
hours,” says Dale. “You learn to rely on each other.”

Now, their 13-acre homestead is a fully-working ranch with goats, sheep, chickens, honey bees, and
lots of other four-and two-legged creatures. Dale and Linda are dedicated to breeding and

developing animals that are both humanely raised and managed in open pastures as close to their
natural state as possible, free of hormones and antibiotics. Their reason for joining AWA was to
contribute to the effort and support the AWA standards while providing customers with heart-healthy,

Winn Family Farms is a family-owned and -operated grazing enterprise in Northampton County.
Recognizing that grass farming is an environmentally friendly means of earning a living from the
land while respecting its integrity, we present a healthful meat product to the consumer at a fair
price. Utilizing USDA-inspected processing, we insure that our grass-fed lamb is available to you in
a safe and wholesome condition. Grass-fed lamb presents the creative cook with an opportunity to
feed the family a meat that is flavorful, lean, and tender. Lamb produced in such a natural and
humane manner is also higher in omega-3 fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acid than even
grass-fed beef or bison, and is rich in lutein. Of course, we use no sub-therapeutic antibiotics or
hormones in growing our animals. The Winn family has engaged in agriculture in North Carolina and
Virginia since the 1620s. It is our goal to continue farming for many years to come. We hope that
you will find our products a healthful and delicious addition to your table.

products. A different approach to other markets, the Conover Farmers Market will focus on vendors
providing products 'from the farm to the fork.' All vendors complete a simple application process,
including an on site visit, and approval of the Board of Directors. Produce is available in season
and grown by our vendors in a 100 miles radius of the market! Fresh, flavorful summer fruits and
vegetables have arrived and we appreciate our community understanding the harvest time frame.
God bless the beautiful weather and North Carolina's fertile soil!
Conover Farmer's Market is a member of Foothills Fresh; a division of the North Carolina
Cooperative Extension Office. For more info about Foothills Fresh CLICK HERE.

We are in the process of connecting with local sponsors to expand our outreach and effectiveness in
the community. Please contact us with your ideas.

Market History
The Conover Farmers Market was the two year vision of 2 local ladies and 1 local berry farmer from
Conover who wanted a place to buy goods grown and produced locally direct from the growers.
They also envisioned a new way to reach out to their community to educate all of the importance of
local farming and give community groups another venue for fund raising. The market is run by the
farmers for the benefit of the farmers and Catawba County residents. There are currently 30 vendor
members ready to serve you throughout the season. Any local grower can become part of the
market through a simple application process and a visit from the market.
The 2011 farmers market season through end of October with 30 vendors and more variety Holiday
craft market in November the Saturday before Thanksgiving. July 2010 brings our 501C(3)
non-profit status to reality.

John Council raises Animal Welfare Approved pigs and beef cattle on John L. Council Farm in
Shannon, NC. This is a multi-generational farm where sustainable agricultural practices have been
passed down from father to son. Livestock graze on 68 acres, naturally foraging and growing on
grass and pasture. By using a rotational management system, the cows and pigs enrich the soil,
preventing against erosion and nutrient leaching. The Councils have chosen sustainable agricultural
practices because they truly believe that “you are what you eat.” If the animals benefit from
sustainable, humane treatment, then so will consumers, by receiving a superior, more healthful
product that also benefits the environment.

John Council sells his Animal Welfare Approved pork and beef directly to consumers on the farm,
Monday through Saturday. His meat is also available at farmers' markets and restaurants. For more
information about the farm, and to request a farm tour, please visit the farm's website at

North Fork Farm is a small family cattle farm located in the mountains of western North Carolina.
Cattle have always been a part of our lives, and we pride ourselves on having the highest quality of
beef available. Our cattle are raised without the use of hormones, or any growth steroids. We
believe pasture feeding with some all natural grain, makes just the right flavor in beef. We are
licensed to sell beef, pork and chicken by the state of North Carolina. We are very pleased to
provide our friends, neighbors, family and you with great quality of meats.

We offer vacuum packed frozen beef, pork and chicken for sale on our farm. Also available is
custom cut to order 1/4, 1/2 or whole beef or half or whole hog. Our cattle are left out on pasture and
given some natural quality feed, for just the right flavor. Our cattle are raised on pasture, and not
confined in a feed lot. Our hogs are provided to us by a local farmer who is very dedicated to
producing a healthy natural grown hog. We have two options on our chicken. We offer certified
organic chicken from a North Carolina farm or an all natural chicken, raised in North Carolina. Both,
of course, are not raised using any growth hormones or antibiotics! We sell at two local farmers
markets and we also offer a Meat CSA.

When you choose North Fork Farm local meats, you're supporting North Carolina family farmers and
their rural communities. We offer the best antibiotic and hormone free meat and with sustainable
farming. We know that when you do the right things you get the right results. For us that means our
passion for every detail brings you the finest tasting all natural meats at a reasonable price.

Feel free to contact us with any questions.

farming and seasonal eating, to encourage and promote the use of locally grown farm products and
to enhance quality of life in Greater Wilmington by providing a community activity that fosters social

savvy urban shoppers who recognize the value of seasonal produce, flowers, and other farm goods.

Currently there are few direct-to-consumer options available for backyard and small farms in the
Charlotte-Mecklenburg area. Community agriculture and sustainability are gaining support, and are
popular media topics, and a growing number of consumers want to have a relationship with the
people who produce their food. Local food is better for the environment, for the local economy, for
our health, and it just plain tastes better. What could be a better reason than that to buy local?



We value the relationships that we are building with others in the community who are focused on
sustainability issues. We are a relatively small market, but expect to grow while keeping focused on
the goal of providing fresh, local, organically grown products to the residents of Plaza-Midwood and
beyond.

Beef at Baldwin Family Farms is Animal Welfare Approved.

The Baldwins have been farming for nearly forty years in the piedmont region of North Carolina.
They purchased their first Charolais heifers in 1969, and have been building their herd - and their
genetics - ever since. The Baldwins originally started as breeders, but “quite by accident” got into
raising grassfed beef when they decided to market surplus stock themselves. The feedback was so
good they decided to start a business selling grassfed beef. They have honed their skills both as
breeders and beef producers, and now supply area grocery stores, restaurants, farmers markets
and online shopping. As a veteran farmer, V. Mac has this to say to beginners:

  Go to school, rent a farm, then do it-but keep your day job. If you farm long enough and well
enough, you can't afford to keep your day job any more.



                                                                                                 Page 294
north carolina guide: online shopping


The Baldwins decided to certify their farm “Animal Welfare Approved” because they noticed a
growing interest in farm animal welfare among their customers. “You will not believe how many
emails and phone calls we get regarding how the animals are treated,” says V. Mac. The Animal
Welfare Approved seal is an assurance to consumers that the Baldwin's cattle have been treated
according to the highest welfare standards. In addition to becoming Animal Welfare Approved, V.
Mac was selected as the 2008 North Carolina winner of the Swisher Sweets/Sunbelt Expo
Southeastern Farmer of the Year Award. He has also been appointed President of the North
Carolina Forage and Grassland Council, an association with more than 500 members across the
state. The Baldwins are a welcome addition to the Animal Welfare Approved program and a model
for other farmers across the nation.

We are a family farm committed to environmentally friendly farming, with a multi-generational view of
being faithful stewards of our family farm.

We have invested heavily in the intrastructure of our land, fencing off rivers and ponds, and
providing well water in each paddock to allow us to practice management intensive grazing, moving
our cows regularly to allow our pastures long periods of rest. We have selected cattle that finish well
on grass, taking advantage of the Senepol breed, which have a high resistance to insects and thrive
on fescue pasture, and angus-hereford brood cows to take advantage of hybrid vigor, to allow us to
produce natural, healthy beef directly from our farm to your table.

We sell by the quarter, half, and whole in order to be very competitive on price. So you get the best
of both worlds, grass fed beef produced lovingly by a local family farm, and a price at the fraction of
organic beef. Grassfed beef's health benefits will exceed organic.

Raises Animal Welfare Approved beef cattle.

Beef may be purchased through the website or directly from the farm. Please call or email to
schedule an appointment.

The Teagues raise a herd of roughly 100 Charolais and Simmental cattle in the foothills of North
Carolina using pasture rotation, mob grazing and environmental conservation practices. Working
with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), the Teagues are careful stewards of the
land and take great pride in their farm. It all began in 1867 when Ronnie's great-great grandfather,
Christopher Teague, purchased 80 acres and began farming. The farm was then passed down
through the generations and run as a mixed livestock farm, a dairy farm, and a cow-calf operation.
Ronnie and Pam are now the fifth generation of the Teagues to work the beautiful land located in
historic Snow Camp, and are shifting the focus to raising natural, grassfed beef. While continuing to
evolve they still maintain the traditions of the past, including making molasses - a skill learned from
Ronnie's grandfather, Marion.

In addition to having farming “in the blood,” Little Creek Ranch has also benefited from the expertise
of local extension agents, other farmers and NRCS staff. The Animal Welfare Approved seal is an
added endorsement of the farm's conscientious practices. When Ronnie learned about Animal
Welfare Approved certification he said it was a natural fit: “I felt like we were already doing it - we
didn't have to change much.” Visit http://www.littlecreekranchnc.com/ for more information and to

Sells Animal Welfare Approved beef. Farm store hours: every day 8am-8pm. Visit website or call for
information on ordering for delivery: 704-297-0174 (cell).

Steve and Dianne Proffitt began their grassfed beef operation in 2000 out of a passion for farming
and living close to the land. They have almost 70 head of Scottish Aberdeen/commercial Cross
Angus cattle. Well-suited to forage and also with excellent mothering abilities, the herd thrives on
100% USDA certified organic pastures, without added hormones, and never confined to a feedlot.

The growing farm turned into a full family venture when Steve and Dianne's daughter Shelley and
her husband Brian decided they would like to live a simpler, country lifestyle. They help with the day
to day management of the farm, and their children Dewi and Zoe lend a hand as well. Steve reports
that, "They all love living and working together on the farm."

Everyone on Proffitt Family Farms viewed joining Animal Welfare Approved as an important way to
show the value they place on high-welfare farming. Taking good care of their cattle humanely is at
the core of their operation, and it is exactly why their herd lives out its days on pasture. They
explain, "When we tell our customers about Animal Welfare Approved and our certification they
seem glad to know that such a program exists. The logo is helpful and validates what we tell our
customers. It confirms us as a family farm."

Weeping Radish Farm Brewery
 6810 Caratoke Hwy Grandy, Jarvisburg, NC 27947
Tel: 252-491-5205
Available at Website Page
http://www.weepingradish.com/

We brew only natural unfiltered beers and all our beer is brewed based on the "Reinheitsgebot" of
1516, allowing no additives in beer. We self distribute locally and we probably have the only 100%
glass re-use brewery in this country. All our bottles can be returned to the brewery for a 35 cent
credit or a $2 credit, depending on the bottle size. We do not recycle glass, we re-use!

We co-op with local family farms and raise only free range hormone free animals. This year we
bought all the grain for our pork farmer and he in tern is raising over 100 hogs for us. We are also
working on a beef arrangement similar to the hog system. Our butchery is a joint venture with a 5th
generation German Master butcher, we make and smoke all our own sausages, bacon, salami and
even prosciutto on site. The goal is to know which local farm each piece of meat came from.

We have a true organic farmer who raises all crops naturally and based on the Rudolf Steiner
principal. We are composting all retail food scraps, meat scraps and brewer's grain together with our
grass clippings as food source for the farm.

We strive to use all our own vegetables and meats, of course also the beer. By the way we are the
only restaurant brewery in the US where we never in 22 years, have sold another beer but our own!

We are bringing in a fully qualified German Master Butcher and a graduate from Turin, who has
been training at the Terra Madre facility. We are also working with Johnson and Wales to create a
culinary intern program, which would give students an opportunity to raise vegetables, make
sausages, smoke meats and fish and then the training would take them to Bavaria to train at the
family butcher's facility there. This is a very different training approach but is essential if we want to
create a sustainable food chain in this country.

Founded in 1977, the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy (ALBC) is a clearing-house for
information on livestock and genetic diversity. These breeds are threatened because agriculture has
changed. Modern food production now favors the use of a few highly specialized breeds selected for
maximum output in a controlled environment. Many traditional livestock breeds have lost popularity
and are threatened with extinction. These traditional breeds are an essential part of the American
agricultural inheritance. Not only do they evoke our past, they are also an important resource for our
future.

ALBC protects genetic diversity in livestock and poultry species through the conservation and
promotion of endangered breeds. ALBC's programs include research on breed population size,
distribution and genetic health; research on breed characteristics; gene banks to preserve genetic
material from endangered breeds; rescues of threatened populations; education about genetic
diversity and the role of livestock in sustainable agriculture; and technical support to a network of
breeders, breed associations, and farmers. <P'
By becoming a member of ALBC, you can help preserve our agricultural heritage as well as provide
a significant source of funding for this unique conservation effort. Membership provides the
following benefits: Bi-monthly newsletter, ALBC News; Annual Breeders Directory; Updates on
Education Programs and Events; and Special Pre-publication Prices on ALBC Publications. Many
ALBC members also raise rare breeds. Individual breeders make up an active network of people
who participate in hands-on conservation, marketing and public education.

An association of the grower/producer only farmer's tailgate markets in Madison, Buncombe, and
Yancey counties. A tailgate market where a grower can sell directly to the consumer is perhaps the
small farmer's best opportunity to profit from their land and efforts.


A tailgate market where consumers can talk directly to the grower, get the freshest produce
possible, and experience the health-giving effects of that freshness, is the consumer's best access
to quality.

The Weston A. Price Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt charity founded in 1999 to disseminate
the research of nutrition pioneer Dr. Weston Price, whose studies of isolated non-industrialized
peoples established the parameters of human health and determined the optimum characteristics of
human diets.



                                                                                                   Page 333

Dr. Price's research demonstrated that humans achieve perfect physical form and perfect health
generation after generation only when they consume nutrient-dense whole foods and the vital
fat-soluble activators found exclusively in animal fats.


The Foundation is dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the human diet through education,
research and activism. It supports a number of movements that contribute to this objective including
accurate nutrition instruction, organic and biodynamic farming, pasture-feeding of livestock,
community-supported farms, honest and informative labeling, prepared parenting and nurturing
therapies.

Organic, Kosher catering for vegan/vegetarian/pescatarian affairs. We specialize in green weddings
and other sustainable special events. Small, local focus - we source every item locally that is
currently available, and are always seeking out new local items to replace those ingredients that are
currently only available from a distance. We strongly believe in using only organic ingredients, both
for the health of the planet and for your health. We actively partner with small local organic farms,
and are excited to be a part of this burgeoning food community!

The food itself is not just ethically and sustainably sourced - it's also delicious and beautiful. We put
our heart and soul into creating meals that are both nurturing and nourishing; eye catching and
tantalizing; fresh and eclectic. This isn't hippie food! (No offense to hippies - we love you!) Why not
use a caterer whose values and sensibilities match your own? Contact us for a complementary
consultation.

Cane Creek and Braeburn Farms merged in 2007, and are a special home for unique breeds of pigs
and cattle, as well as an ever-expanding family of goats, chickens, turkeys, sheep, donkeys and
ducks. Our animals are rotated continuously through pastures and woods, an ethical way to raise
livestock that minimizes our need to medicate them, and helps assure healthy animals. Healthy
animals lead to healthy food for our customers, food which happens to have incredible flavor. Help
support local and sustainable farms in the Piedmont and promote our local economy!

Our farming practices differ from those of our large scale counterparts in almost every way. Cane
Creek is a family owned farm and practices sustainable agriculture - rotating crops and animals to
keep the soil (incredibly) healthy and to keep the animals on fresh forage. Our animals are never
kept in confinement and have free range to graze, root, and wallow. The pigs always have access to
fresh water and are either hand-fed or have free access to grain-based food, supplemented with
everything from garden clippings in the spring and summer to pumpkins and peanuts in the fall.
Sheep, cows, and goats are all entirely grass-fed, and our feed never has antibiotics or animal
by-products. Cane Creek's sows give birth as they would in the wild - by making a nest and raising
their piglets without human interference.

The best way to reach us is by email. We are usually out and about taking care of our animals and
gardens, so our phone is only checked once or twice a day.

The mission of Carolina Heritage Vineyards is to deliver sustainably-grown fruit and honey bee
products which are reasonably priced and promote a healthy environment and lifestyle for all
involved - our neighbors, our customers and ourselves.


Carolina Heritage Vineyards was established in 2005 on a farm three miles east of Elkin on Highway
268 in the middle of the Yadkin Valley Viticultural Area (AVA.)


With a commitment to organic viticultural practices, varieties of grapes were chosen to be planted
which grow natively in this region and/or are the most disease and insect resistant. Eight acres have
been planted to date in Muscadines (Noble, Doreen, and Carlos) and American varietals and
hybrids (Cynthiana, Rubiana (GR-7) and Traminette.) In addition 1.5 acres of blueberries have been
planted which are being actively pollinated by the bees from our first bee hives.


We sell organically-grown Muscadine and American grapes and blueberries, wines and mead.

"Crook's continues to live up to its national reputation as a temple of Southern cuisine. Whether you
opt for traditional fare such as fried oysters and gumbo or New Southern dishes such as
sweetbreads sauteed with Wild Turkey and the restaurant's standard-setting shrimp and grits, it's
hard to go wrong.

Desserts, from homemade ice creams to better-than-mama's banana pudding, are worth the
calories. The narrow dining room can get noisy; a bamboo-enclosed patio offers escape in warm
weather. Brunch: Crook's dinnertime reputation as one of the area's best spots to sample the new
Southern cuisine translates beautifully to the brunch menu. Here you'll find what some consider to
be the original shrimp and grits, as well as an a la cart selection including huge buttermilk pancakes,
omelets, oyster po' boy or fried catfish sandwich, and eggs Benedict on country ham and a
homemade English muffin. If the weather's nice, you can brunch on one of the area's prime patios."

Early Girl Eatery opened its doors in mid October of 2001. Centrally located in downtown Asheville
on historic Wall Street, the critically-acclaimed eatery offers delicious southern food in a casual,
charming atmosphere.
The menu relies heavily on the high quality local produce grown in the area by family farms and
community-supported agriculture (CSAs). Our cheeses and some of our meats are also produced
and raised locally by small family farmers who raise their animals in natural, pastured settings. The
menu changes periodically with the seasons, while the specials change daily. This enables us to
better utilize the local ingredients available. We believe local food tastes better and sustains a
healthy community.
Aside from supporting local farmers directly, Early Girl also promotes sustainable agriculture through
its membership in several local and regionally-based sustainable agriculture groups, including
Carolina Farm Stewardship Association and Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project.
Made from scratch is the motto at the Early Girl, and our recipes reflect our background in southern
cooking as well as our vast experience with vegetarian fare.

herbs from our own organic gardens, and then source everything else from carefully selected
regional, all natural and organic sources. Our Italian ancestors have taught us to always celebrate
the freshest ingredients, simple, delicious meals, and the love of sharing it all with family and friends.

Our certified organic beans are grown in El Salvador and are roasted locally in Durham. We pay
above fair market (or Direct Trade) price per pound to ensure that workers are paid a living wage.
We chose El Salvador not only for their high quality of shade grown coffee, but also because of
Habitat Charlotte's close relationship with Habitat El Salvador. Finca Mauritania, where our coffee is
grown, overlooks Santa Ana and hundreds of homes built in El Salvador with hands from Charlotte.
This truly gives new meaning to the term "House Coffee."

We brew only natural unfiltered beers and all our beer is brewed based on the "Reinheitsgebot" of
1516, allowing no additives in beer. We self distribute locally and we probably have the only 100%
glass re-use brewery in this country. All our bottles can be returned to the brewery for a 35 cent
credit or a $2 credit, depending on the bottle size. We do not recycle glass, we re-use!

We co-op with local family farms and raise only free range hormone free animals. This year we
bought all the grain for our pork farmer and he in tern is raising over 100 hogs for us. We are also
working on a beef arrangement similar to the hog system. Our butchery is a joint venture with a 5th
generation German Master butcher, we make and smoke all our own sausages, bacon, salami and
even prosciutto on site. The goal is to know which local farm each piece of meat came from.

We have a true organic farmer who raises all crops naturally and based on the Rudolf Steiner

principal. We are composting all retail food scraps, meat scraps and brewer's grain together with our
grass clippings as food source for the farm.

We strive to use all our own vegetables and meats, of course also the beer. By the way we are the
only restaurant brewery in the US where we never in 22 years, have sold another beer but our own!

We are bringing in a fully qualified German Master Butcher and a graduate from Turin, who has
been training at the Terra Madre facility. We are also working with Johnson and Wales to create a
culinary intern program, which would give students an opportunity to raise vegetables, make
sausages, smoke meats and fish and then the training would take them to Bavaria to train at the
family butcher's facility there. This is a very different training approach but is essential if we want to
create a sustainable food chain in this country.

Zambra is dedicated to the principles of 'farm to table'. We source local & organic ingredients
whenever possible, though we also import many ingredients directly from Spain.

We are inspired by Spanish tapas bars...but we add our own original ideas! Our food features the
tastes of the Western Carolinas - with appropriate gypsy influences. We believe the focus should be
on quality ingredients and a cuisine which is at once pure, simple, and joyful.

My wife, Annah, and I first connected with organic and health foods in the early nineties. We
discovered that in eating these foods—less sugary foods, fresh, seasonal vegetables and quality
ingredients—the flavors of our Palestinian homeland started surfacing. Fresh pita bread dipped in
quality cold pressed olive oil brings out the rich flavor of olives like those from the orchards of my
village. A bowl of salad with a fresh, locally grown tomato reminds me of the salads my mother
made in our kitchen. Through these connections, the picture became clear that the traditional,
Mediterranean way of eating ties up very well with eating a diet of healthy, organic, local foods. Now
in our own kitchen at Zaytoon, we are determined to bring the Greensboro community and its
visitors a healthy and tastier bite of food at an affordable price.

Buying local foods is an essential element of our food philosophy. As we have come to know and
love living in Greensboro, we have learned the importance and value of buying our ingredients from
within the local community. Our dream is not to become another million-dollar chain restaurant, but
to be proud and supportive members of the Greensboro community by sharing healthy and delicious
foods from our homeland.



                                                                                                  Page 384

Zely & Ritz is all about fresh, organic, locally grown dishes served in tapas style small plates (so that
you can order several and share) in an upscale, casual, yet hip and smoke-free environment.
Chef Sarig's food is intensely flavorful, beautifully presented and simply delicious. Sarig uses
Mediterranean and Middle Eastern spices in unexpected ways with local organic ingredients to
create fantastic culinary works of art and as a former Wine Spectator award winner, Nancy's wine
selections are the perfect complement to the perfect meal.



                                                                                                  Page 385
north carolina guide: restaurants

At Zely & Ritz we believe the best food comes from local farmers that we know produce quality
organic produce and hormone and antibiotic free meats. We buy locally and organically whenever
we can. Both Chef Sarig and Richard grew up farming and cooking (Richard on a farm in Eastern
North Carolina and Sarig on a Kibbutz along the Mediterranean Sea in Israel).
As adults, Sarig became a master chef who specializes in preparing fresh ingredients in the most
delicious way and along with wife Nancy pairing them with the perfect wines to make for the tastiest
and healthiest possible meals. Richard became an entrepreneur/businessman who in addition to
being an avid organic gardener recently purchased Coon Rock Farm which will supply vegetables,
meat, eggs, and honey for Zely & Ritz. And to complete the cycle, all food waste from Zely & Ritz is
sent back to Coon Rock farm for composting to feed the next season of crops.

Many of the products, including the meats and produce, come from sustainable and organic
producers located just down the road.
