Have you ever wanted to pick your own strawberries? Pet a baby goat? See how they grow lettuce in water? Or harvest asparagus?  Want to tour a working farm? Got a hankering for to indulge in a traditional Pig Pickin’? This Saturday, May 19th,  Moore County’s local farmers are opening up their farms, barns and fields so you can get to Know Your Farmer!  Our county’s scenic roads are dotted with family farms.  So put on your tennis shoes, bring a cooler for your purchases, download a map and plot out your tour. Your family will love it!

The tour is free and self-guided.  You can visit all or any of the farms in any order.  All farms will be open from 10am – 1pm* (farmers still need time to tend their crops in the field!) Olde Carthage Farm will be open for the Pig Pickin’ and tours until 4pm.  Some of the other farms will also be open later for your convenience and tours after lunch – you’ll see all the details when you register and get your map.

And when you get good and hungry, stop by Olde Carthage Organic Farm and help yourself to an ole’ fashioned pig pickin’!  Yep, third generation Pig master, Tommy Womack, will be roasting up a whole hog on Saturday.  He’ll get the hog started about 4am and you can purchase a plate of down home goodness of traditional southern bar-b-que including hush puppies and coleslaw between noon and 4pm. Oh, and what would a berry farm be without strawberry shortcake?   Aroma Café will be offering a make-your-own-shortcake so you can load it high with sweet strawberries and top it off with whipped cream.

Reserve your Plate of Home Grown Goodness! We’ll keep your food piping hot and your Ice tea nice and cold until you get to the farm.
Picnic with us or take it home, just don’t miss out!

Moore County’s roots are in farming, and some of our farms are “Century” Farms – meaning that the family has farmed this land for over 100-years.   Saturday is a day for a self-guided journey where you can visit new farmers who are just starting out as well as our Century Farmers.   Finding your way to the barn door has never been easier.  Visitors will delight in traveling the stunning countryside that is filled with unique agricultural experiences. You can explore berry farms and see blueberries and blackberries just beginning to peek out, walk the rows and pick your own strawberries, find out all about the workings of bee hives, see a hydroponic lettuce crop, and shop right at the source for ‘fresh and local’ food at the many farm-gates.  It’s as easy as jumping in the car!

The tour is free and self-guided.  You can visit all or any of the farms in any order.  All farms will be open from 10am – 1pm* (farmers still need time to tend their crops in the field!) Olde Carthage Farm will be open for the Pig Pickin’ and tours until 4pm.  Some of the other farms will also be open later for your convenience and tours after lunch – you’ll see all the details when you register and get your map.
