Little Tree Farm is 25 acres of beautiful rolling countryside located in Granville County, NC just 35 miles north of Raleigh. We grow a variety of vegetables, flowers and fruits, including: asparagus, blueberries, melons, winter squash, pumpkins, hardshell gourds, luffas, spring veggies, snapdragons, sweet williams, sunflowers, zinnias and gladiolus. We are improving the land through cover cropping, crop rotation and animal rotation. We raise bees for honey and pollination. Our poultry provides us with eggs, meat (stewing hens, broilers, heritage and standard turkeys and occasionally guineas), soil fertility and aeration as well as endless entertainment.
The laying flocks have large very comfortable houses with pine shaving on the floor, roosts, clean nest boxes,excellent ventilation, automatic drinkers for the freshest cool water. Their large yards provide shade and dusting areas with plenty of room to run around. The chickens and turkeys get lots of fresh fruits and veggies (they esp. love melons and grapes). We rotate temporary netting to give them access to green grass as well as have them help us with turning the compost pile, working over fields after a crop is done and cleaning up under the apple trees. We protect them from predators.
2008 season: We have lots of fresh delicious brown eggs available throughout the year. We will be harvesting asparagus in April and May. Blueberries are available June through September. Stewing hens in May and broilers in July. Spring veggie in May and June. Find our products on the farm (by appt) or at the Durham Farmers Market every Saturday morning (April-Thanksgiving) in the Pavilion at Durham Central Park in downtown Durham, 501 Foster St. (on the corner of Foster St and Hunt Ave).
