Hutchens Homestead

HutchensThe Hutchens family has a small farm in north-eastern Salisbury, NC. They started farming to get "back to the basics" of eating and living and they'd like to help you do the same. This is their first year growing for the public and they have planted 50+ different types of organic, heirloom, or non-GMO seeds. They never use any pesticides or herbicides on their farm, partly to protect their honey bee operation. They also offer some of the freshest farm eggs around. Their turkeys and chickens range freely on their 20-acre farm, and can often be found relaxing on the front porch or dust bathing in the woods. They supplement the poultry's nutrition, as needed, with certified organic, non-GMO, soy free, and hormone free products to ensure a balanced diet year round. Less is more when it comes to nature and the fruits it naturally bares.

Products Planned: fresh chicken and turkey eggs, potatoes, sweet potatoes, peppers of several types, okra, cucumbers, squash, zucchini, carrots, kale, spinach, radish, tomatoes of several types, soybeans, peas, beans, corn of several types, cauliflower, watermelons, garlic, muskmelons, huckleberries, and several herbs. They plan for a great year for wildflower honey, bees wax, and goats milk products too

Teachers Can Too

Teachers Can Too01Teachers Can Too02

We are a mother, daughter team and we both teach high school in the Rowan-Salisbury School System. Cindy teaches at East Rowan High School and Lydia teaches at North Rowan High School. They both love teaching, enjoy their students and the curriculums that they teach. However, teaching is a demanding job and sometimes you just have to do something totally different than your normal "day job."

Cindy was raised on a farm in Northern Kentucky where canning was a natural process of preserving food for the coming year and felt it was important to continue canning with her own children to pass the knowledge on to the next generation. Jams, jellies and apple butters were always given as gifts to family and friends over the years and one of those friends suggested that they start selling their products. So that's how Teachers Can, Too! was started.

Cindy and Lydia decided to share their "gifts" and two years ago started selling their products at the Salisbury Farmer's Market. They have numerous varieties of jams, jellies and apple butters and buy most of their fruit produced right here in Rowan County. Some of the varieties are strawberry jam, blueberry jam, blackberry jam, fig jam, Centennial (Cheerwine) jelly, scuppernong jelly, muscadine jelly, old fashion apple butter and cinnamon apple butter.

Twin-Oak-Farms

Twin Oak Farms originated around the depression under owner James Patterson. This family run farm continued to operate under the supervision of his two sons, Frank and Carl, until the mid 70's. The brothers split the business and Frank continued the operation as Frank Patterson Farm. In the mid 1990's, Tim Sloop and Greg Hartsell assumed responsibility of Frank Patterson Farms and continue to operate under that name as mainly a wholesale vegetable producer.

As farmers' markets became popular in many areas, Tim & Greg were excited about new opportunities to connect directly with local folks. In an effort to pay homage to the original farm, they revived the Twin Oak Farms name. Twin Oak Farms currently grows around 40 acres of vegetables each year. Tomatoes continue to be the main crop including greenhouse grown and conventional field grown tomatoes including heirlooms, roma, yellow and several red varieties. 

Products: Tomatoes, strawberries, asparagus, lettuce, broccoli, kale, swiss chard, basil, cilantro, dill, cabbage, potatoes, snow peas, snap peas, green beans, yellow squash, zucchini, cucumbers, eggplant, okra, peppers, cantaloupe, and watermelon.
