Coon Rock Farm

Holy goat, yes goats! I am in amazement. Coon Rock Farm, an organic and biodynamic farm in Orange County has gotten my attention.

LG, I know you would love this place because you were so down with Bluebird Meadows (a sustainable farm featured in Bon Apétit, located in Hurdle Mills just north of Durham). My friend Victoria brought Coon Rock to my attention. She purchases pre-ordered produce from them on Thursdays at Zely & Ritz, the farm’s tapas restaurant that’s located across the street from work. The prices are great and Victoria says the veggies arrive covered in dirt—so you know the produce is straight from the ground and to your kitchen. I’ve tried their arugula, and wow is it flavorful and spicy. I’m a fan. Coon Rock also raises poultry, sheep, goats and pigs. I would love to visit the farm soon and check out their practices firsthand.

  1. As Em said, I highly recommend this farm. You can find these nice folks at the Carrboro Farmers Market, too. Everything I’ve gotten from them has been incredibly fresh. Their arugula is insanely peppery and delicious, and it has ruined me for the organic yet bland stuff that I used to buy in the clamshells. Coon Rock also offers CSAs, which are fantastic ways to save money and support local farmers. Coon Rock ROCKS!

  2. CRF sounds like a place I would really enjoy. “Local” farms seem really booming now. Good for those who took the risks some years ago and hopefully are reaping some rewards now.
