So spend the afternoon with the folks at Cedar Grove. Most weekends during the season they will bring out a juice press so pickers can go home with freshly squeezed blueberry juice.

  • Chapel Hill Creamery

    Chapel Hill Creamery

    We are a 37-acre dairy and cheese-making farmstead located just minutes from Chapel Hill, NC. We specifically chose Jersey cows for our farm, since their rich milk produces a high-quality cheese. Our herd spends its time on lush pastures and the intensive rotational grazing system ensures that our livestock will have access to high-quality grass during the growing season. We milk throughout the year to make a range of delicious handcrafted artisan cheeses. We also raise whey-fed pigs, and produce a range of sausages, cuts of pork and Animal Welfare Approved rose veal. Open by appointment only or scheduled events.

  • Coon Rock Farm

    Coon Rock Farm

    Coon Rock Farm has been a continually operating farm for over 120 years. The 4 room farm house was built around 1880 and you can still see the hand-hewn log timbers that serve as the house. The farm has 10 acres of intense vegetable gardens, orchards, and ponds. The rest of the farm is in a combination of pasture and forest which is used to graze the animals (poultry, sheep, cows & pigs) and provide a wonderful habitat for wildlife and native plants.  

    The name Coon Rock is an old one that comes from a very large rock formation at the property’s edge that juts out into the Eno River. It’s a landmark that all the ‘old-timers’ in Hillsborough know as many of them grew up swimming and fishing at the Coon Rock.foundation.
