Built over 200 years ago, Shady Oaks 1812 is one of the oldest homes still standing in her county. She is on the National Register for Historic Place for her architectural significance and enjoys protective covenants through Preservation North Carolina. We are taking Shady Oaks into a new era by bringing her back to her farming roots. Once a 3000 acre tobacco plantation she is now a 14 acre farmette producing beyond organic vegetables, flowers and free range chicken for eggs and meat. We take wisdom from the old, slow way of farming by using a holistic approach, putting quality first, being diverse, using our own hands and elbow grease, putting back more than we take and regenerating the soil so the land can contribute to the local food system by offering delicious, nutrient-dense food.
