Creekside Farm in Arden, NC grows vegetables on six 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 75 free range laying hens. The farm is also home to the Creekside Farm Education Center, and 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 farm land and the food producing capacity of the region, and preserving the knowledge of farming for future generations.
