Welcome

Welcome to Woodcrest Farm! We are a working farm in southern Orange County. You can read about our events and offerings here on our website, follow our daily activities on "Woodcrest Farm Today", or subscribe to our e-newsletter by emailing info@woodcrestfarmnc.com

Mission

Woodcrest Farm is a working family farm, much like it was 100 years ago. We practice what has become known as sustainable agriculture: using natural methods to raise both livestock and organic produce for local markets. Our Heritage programs take root in Orange Grove, providing a connection to local culture and ecology, to our rural legacy and the story of this land. Woodcrest Farm School is a year-round learning center for all ages.

This has always been a “family farm” - which means that, in today’s agricultural market, it is too small to be profitable in the usual agri-business model. Our strategy has been to develop niche markets: grass-fed Dexter beef, farm-raised pork, dairy cattle and goats, free-range chickens, and organically raised produce. All of these activities can coexist, use the land gently, and be economically practical for a family farm.

Visitors welcome! Call ahead for a tour!
