About Darnell Farms

We are a working farm located along the banks of the Tuckaseegee river in Bryson City, North Carolina. We have in-season fruits and vegetables, such as strawberries, a large assortment of heirloom tomatoes, beefsteak tomatoes, squash, corn, beans, cucumbers, greens, herbs, and much, much more. Our retail market also has wonderful options such as fresh peaches, other local grown produce, amish butter, cheese, fresh eggs, cold drinks, food, homemade jellies and local handmade crafts. We have two large festivals each year, Strawberry Jam and Plow Day. This year Strawberry Jam will be on May 16, 2020 and Plow Day is on October 17, 2020. These festivals are all day events. For more information visit our homepage www.darnellfarms.com or our Facebook page. We also offer educational agritourism activities, as well as destination weddings on our beautiful farm. Come on down and make our farm your own!
