Creekside Farm in Arden, NC grows vegetables on three acres and sells produce, flowers, and eggs thru a CSA program, farmers markets, and direct purchases by local restaurants. Our farm also includes 45 acres of pasture for a grass-fed cow-calf program that includes 18 cows and a couple miniature donkeys and 80 free-range laying hens. The farm is also home to the Creekside Farm Education Center, an old schoolhouse circa 1920 that has been repurposed for community events and education related to sustainable farming. The center also has a commercial kitchen for farm to table meals and other events.
Our Mission: Building healthy communities around food, protecting farmland and the food-producing capacity of the region, and preserving the knowledge of farming for future generations.
