Hilltop Farms

We are Wake County's first and only Certified Organic Produce Farm, located in Willow Spring, NC, 15 miles south of Raleigh. We grow 60 varieties of fruits, vegetables and small grains. We sell to restaurants and stores either direct or through Eastern Carolina Organics (ECO) and provide for over 150 families through our CSA program. Members support the farm by paying in advance to receive a weekly share of vegetables throughout the growing season. We deliver to 7 drop site locations: 4 in Raleigh, 1 in Cary and 2 at the farm. During the season we also sell at the Raleigh Downtown Farmers Market on Wednesdays, as well as our farmstand here on Tuesdays and Saturday afternoons. We host farm tours to groups of 10 or more, which consists of touring the organic fields, beehives, greenhouses and horse barn. Participants learn where food comes from and get a hands-on lesson about equine care. Tour groups are welcomed to picnic under the shade of 120 yr old pecan trees. We also offer Pic-Yer-Own organic strawberries in the spring!

This was my first year to try a CSA program and I picked the Hilltop Farms based on the reviews. However, after receiving the produce for 4-5 weeks now I don't share the same opinion: The produce is stale and extremely dirty.... [more]

This is my third year as a CSA member with Hilltop Farms, and I'll never go back to grocery store produce again. Fred always supplies his members with a great variety of produce and lots of fun chatter at the drop site.... [more]
