Farm description

Welcome to Plum Granny Farm!

We're glad you stopped by for a (virtual) visit to our farm and to see what we are up to these days.

Plum Granny Farm is a USDA Certified Organic small family farm located in the north central piedmont area of North Carolina. The farm is set on 54 beautiful acres of rolling countryside just south of Hanging Rock State Park in the Capella community.

We are building on our heritage as a NC Century Farm, as the farm has been in the Ferguson family for over 140 years.  We grow raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, garlic, ginger, specialty veggies, herbs and cut flowers.

Although full-time farming is fairly new to us, we both have deep connections to our farming heritage.  Cheryl grew up on this farm and her father, grandfather and great-grandfather all practiced the art of cultivation on this soil.  Ray has his farming roots in Kansas where his mother grew up amid some of the most beautiful soil that has ever been seen.

Our approach to farming is to nurture the soil and the land to return it to its optimal state.  Building the soil with cover crops, compost and manure will help us produce better, healthier crops and is an essential part of our sustainability.

We hope you'll stop by frequently to check out our blog and check on the crops.  Our website will continue to grow and develop just as our farm continues to do.  So join us in our adventure!

Here's to good growing and good eating!
