SandyCreek Farm is a small parcel of divided family land with a history rich in traditional farming practices covering many generations.
Included in their fruit crops sold fresh and used in their homemade jellies & preserves are Muscadine grapes, heirloom pears & figs, blueberries & blackberries.
They began growing organic Shiitake mushrooms in 2006 through a research program at NC A & T University. They now have close to 1,000 inoculated mushroom logs and sell the fresh mushrooms in their Farm Store, the Lexington Farmers Market (at the Depot) and to local restaurants and local food buying clubs. Not only are Shiitake a delicious & versatile gourmet delight, but they are also a good source of fiber, protein and anti-oxidants.
SandyCreek Farm has a greenhouse with select plants including the old-fashion johnny jump up, angel wing begonia, woodland ferns, umbrella magnolia & snowball; also tropicals such as banana plants, hibiscus & angel trumpets.
You are invited to enjoy SandyCreek Farm dedicated cutting flower & herb gardens, a walk along the Nature Trail to Sandy Creek, and be sure to ask about our Instant Picnics!
SandyCreek Farm is founding members of both the North Carolina Mushroom Growers Association and the Lexington Farmers Market Association. We are also members of the Lexington Area Chamber of Commerce.
