Wild Scallions Farm

History: It's all about good healthful food, and beautiful local flowers sustainably grown in a balanced farm ecosystem. We love to grow, cook and eat good food. And since 2004, we have had the pleasure of sharing those passions at the Durham Farmers Market. We are located in Southern Person County near the top of Mount Tirzah. Our fifty acre farm includes two acres of cultivated vegetable and flower plots, several berry patches, a small orchard, pasture raised laying hens, bees and dairy goats. 

Flowers: We grow an abundant mix of blooms March through December. We also provide flowers for weddings and special events, featuring unique floral design using all local material. 

Cooking: We enjoy an eclectic mix of cuisines and styles and love to eat and discuss them all. We are all about the vegetables and have many vegetarian recipes and cooking techniques to share. 

Eating: It is not enough to eat our produce in the spring, summer and fall. We are also dedicated to the art of food preservation; we pickle, can, freeze and dry food for year-round consumption.

Growing Practices:

Everything from our hillside farm is sustainably grown, mostly on small plots on the flattest spots. Our farm practices include: improving our soil by planting cover crops, rotating crops, providing habitat for beneficial insects and birds, using surface water for irrigation, and limiting tilling. We try to maximize compatibility of our myriad fields; i.e., planting wet-loving plants like irises in perennially wet plots. We only apply natural soil amendments including compost, feather meal, and wood ashes. We control weeds and pests mainly by mulching, hoeing, and hand-picking those worms (which the chickens love). Three generations now help bring produce to market from our farm.
