Faucette Farms has a rich heritage in North Carolina dating back to the early 1900s. The farm was founded as a small family tobacco farm with minimal amounts of produce. Throughout seven generations, the Faucettes have poured their love, energy and respect into the land in order to squeeze out just enough to support their families. Thanks to the hard work of loyal employees, the farm has been able to grow exponentially in comparison to its humble beginnings. Today, Faucette Farms is also able to supply produce to a multitude of families in the community and other establishments.
2008 was a year that brought unique changes to the farm. Strawberries were grown at the farm for the first time. The berries proved to be a huge success and were enjoyed by many families in the local community. Grove Winery also used them to make their muti-award winning strawberry wine. Once the weather became too warm for the strawberries, our focus changed to providing a larger variety of certified organic produce to the public.
Not only does the farm grow well known organics, such as yellow squash, they also raise special, lesser known varieties, such as spaghetti squash. Zucchini, cucumbers, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, blueberries, onions, and a variety of herbs and beans are all organically grown crops that are found in a abundance at the farm. Although the corn is not certified as organic, it is grown just like the rest of the organic produce. Along with the farm’s wide variety of fruits and vegetables, country cured meats and sausage, made from the family recipe that has been handed down through the generations can be found at the farm.
Faucette Farms has been a part of the Corner Farmer’s Market since the very beginning, and you can always find them offering great produce and fantastic company. They also offer CSA memberships!
