While working on The Charlotte News’ first ever farm guide, we were awed and humbled by the agricultural footprint our little town has. Our respect for farmers and the land continues to grow. We deeply apologize for unintentionally leaving anyone out and would love to hear from you if you would like to be in the guide for next year. It was a pile of work but we thought it worth it to keep the community informed about just how local local can be.
We owe a big apology to our friends at Fat Cow Farm for missing them from the list. They have been great supporters over the years and we were very embarrassed to have missed them. If you haven’t heard of them already, pay them a visit and buy some of their humanely raised, antibiotic- and hormone-free pastured beef, pork and poultry at 800 Bingham Brook Road. Call them at 355-6661 or visit their website for more information: fatcowfarm.com.
