Hooker Family Farm

Agritourism Specialty

Our family has been farming here since 1982 we raise grass fed meat, cage free eggs and a variety of seedlinds and vegetables. Our goal os to use sustainable farming practices that help keep the balance of the art of growing food and being responsible about how we treat our land by using the best practices that will help us run the farm to deliver the freshest produce, eggs and meats and other products to our customers. We strive to be good stewards to our farm land and I feel priviledged to be able to do something that is enjoyable and rewarding. We offer a variety of seedlings in the spring and we our vegetables are grown with organic compost and we choose not to use any pesticides so we implement IPM practices ( intergrated pest management). We also use our own pollinatoers, we have an apairy on the farm.(bee hives)
We also sell hay that is cut off our farm.
The farm is in a conservation plan witht he local NCRS Office and we are in the process of attempting to control thr invasive plants that have taken over the pastures. We are also replacing all fencing with wildlife friendly fences.
