Liberty, NC - Joann and Joe Jurney farm 5 of their 26 acres at Castlemaine Farm, which is named after a small town in Ireland, as well as the state of Maine where Joann grew up. Joann has been bringing produce and flowers to the Market since 2004, and loves to grow greens. Shiloh, the youngest and newest farmer of the family, enjoys splashing in mud puddles, eating vegetables, and smiling.
Castlemaine Farm sells at the Wednesday and Saturday Markets.
Growing Practices: the Jurneys do not use any chemical fertilizers, herbicides or synthetic pesticides. Instead, they use crop rotation and cover cropping, and control pests and weeds mostly by hand.
