Fresh. Local. Good.
Nestled in the bucolic valley where Tumbling Shoals Creek meanders beneath the shadow of Bullhead Mountain in beautiful Wilkes County, Tumbling Shoals Farm is a certified organic vegetable, fruit and cut flower farm.
We have been farming since returning from Peace Corps service as agriculture volunteers in Madagascar in 2002. We began as partners at Gardens of Paradise in Pittsboro, NC, while Shiloh took sustainable agriculture courses at Central Carolina Community College and Jason began working with conventional farmers in his job at RAFI-USA. In 2003, Melvin Whitfield invited us to farm an idle piece of land beside the horse pasture and the pond at his third generation farm in White Cross, NC.
Eventually though, we got tired of commuting to the farm and began looking for a place of our own to put down roots (quite literally in the form of perennial crops). It took three years of roller-coaster searching to find the absolute perfect spot here in Millers Creek, but here we are!
