Rural Farm Productions

Rural Farm Productions is an African American owned and operated small farm in Rural Hall, North Carolina, located near Winston-Salem and Greensboro. We call our farm "Rural Farm Productions" because we produce all of our delicious and nutritious fruits and veggies on our rural farm!

One taste of our sweet watermelons will make you think you are in "Melon Heaven!" But hold on to your hats, 'cause we grow alot more, such as: Apples, Apricots, Blackberries, Strawberries, Pears, Peaches, Persimmons, Figs, Pomegranates, Plums, Cherries, Grapes, Sweet Corn, Tomatoes, Cantaloupes, Collards, Mustard Greens, Turnips, Sweet and Hot Peppers, Eggplant, String Beans, Peas, Green Onions, Walnuts, Squash, Okra, Zucchini (whew!) and we'd probably grow more, if our customers had some other crops they'd like to suggest. Our ears are open and our hands are ready!

In addition to my passion for farming, Rural Farm Productions believes in our spiritual calling to teach children about farming. My love for children and farming has inspired me to write children's books. I have written three books (Puffy the Watermelon, Lucy the Cantaloupe, and Hard Heads Make Soft Bottoms) that share my hard-earned experiences of being a farmer. It is my deep desire to help children to understand where their food comes from! By writing books I hope to inspire future generations to return to the land as a means of earning a living and having a full and beautiful life partnering with nature.

In fact, it was my grandmother that taught me to grow vegetables in her big garden. And it was my father who gave me a plot of land to grow vegetables that I sold as a child. My travels took me far from the land, but I never forgot about the joy of growing food and I had dreams to one day earn enough to buy land to have a farm, and now thirty years later, Annie and I are living our farm dreams! Farming is not easy, but that is what it's like when you are "in love," it's hard work, but there is nothing like being in love...with farming!

The words "I walk by faith" has been the cornerstone of our family's life. We have been blessed to be able to have the health and resources to farm for three decades in Rural Hall. Every year we farm, we have faith that we will sell what we grow to people who appreciate local farmers who grow good food. Thank you for supporting small family farms, like ours in North Carolina. We appreciate you!
