Coon Rock Farm

1021 Dimmocks Mill Road | Hillsborough, NC 27278
(919) 732-4168

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.
