Dedicated to preserving farm life and promoting farming as a viable, financially sustainable way of life, Stowe Dairy Farms is providing farm families with Black Angus beef, eggs, six varieties of Christmas trees, sorghum syrup, seasonal vegetables, farm tours, gardening and food/culinary workshops and summer camps for children. We, as the third generation, continue to provide our 100% grass fed, raised without added steroids, hormones or antibiotics, Black Angus beef to the public on the farm, at local farmers markets and communities in SC, NC and VA. Desiring to preserve the small family farm of the early 1900's and educate the public about this era of family farm life, Stowe Dairy Farms is offering workshops in Sustainable Living once again this year. A series of gardening classes are held January through March followed by workshops on Food Preservation in the early summer. In addition, farm events, commodities, and tours will also focus on sustainablity in 2015. This fall, we harvested sorghum cane and made sorghum syrup using a Chattanooga 44 cane mill to squeeze out the juice and an evaporator pan/ outdoor furnace to cook down our syrup. Winter will feature our Christmas tree season, as we offer six varieties of Christmas trees. We will open for the seventh season the weekend before Thanksgiving 2015 our Choose and Cut fields of Red Cedar, Leyland Cypress, Carolina Sapphire, and White Pine trees. We will continue to offer freshly cut Fraser fir trees, wreaths, sprays, and mailbox toppers; give farm tours; and feature a Christmas shop filled with farm produced commodities, eggs and beef sausage being farm favorites to share.
Tours and special farm events will be promoted through this web site, as well as the ENCCTGA page, NC Agritourism Networking Association, our local Foothill Fresh page, the NCDA General Store web page, and our website and Facebook page.
Stowe Dairy Farms will open the CHRISTMAS TREE FARM on November 22 from 9-7. In our seventh year, we will have Choose and Cut trees, Fraser firs, wreaths, greenery and farm fresh products in our Christmas Shop. A Christmas Market of Artisans of a dozen artists will offer heirloom items that day only. On November 29 from 4-6, Santa Claus will visit the farm. You may enjoy hayrides on the Friday after Thanksgiving & every Saturday. Other family activities are available daily. Merry Christmas!

I have been buying beef from the Stowe Dairy Farm for a few years now and LOVE it. The beef is fantastic and best of all it isn't full of all the nasty stuff you might find in the store.... [more]
We absolutely LOVE their beef. It has a brilliant flavor all its own. Going out to the farm felt like a vacation. It was so peaceful. Still, its a short distance for the best beef ever.... [more]

I'm glad to have found this family farm! They are very convenient to the Lake Wylie/Belmont/Gastonia/Steele Creek market. Gwen was very helpful and excited about revitalizing the farmland owned by their family for several generations.... [more]
