We use no chemical fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides as part of our implementation of sustainable practices, though we are no certified “organic.” T-5’s pasture-raised chickens are grown without hormones, antibiotics or animal by-products. The entire family is active in all aspects of production, sales and marketing through involvement in local Farmer’s Markets, direct sales, and restaurants.

Ran-Lew Dairy Company

Farmer: Randy Lewis

Our milk remains wholesome and natural using low-temperature pasteurization which preserves naturally-occurring nutrients and enzymes while killing pathogenic bacteria. It’s also non-homogenized—the cream rises to the top after time sitting—and contains no antibiotics. Our cows are pastured on grass and fed GMO-free feed without hormones. We bottle whole, low-fat, chocolate milk, and buttermilk in gallon, half-gallon and pint containers right on the farm.

Okfuskee Farm

Farmer: Bobby Tucker

Okfuskee Farm is located in an agricultural area called Silk Hope, 8 miles from Siler City and 14 miles from Pittsboro, in Chatham County, NC. We purchased it on auction through Jerry Harris Auctions in June 2008. It was previously owned by the late Mildred Fields, described by all as a Saint. We did not have the privelege of knowing Ms. Fields but based on the early success of our farm we believe her spirit lives on in this place we now call Okfuskee.

Our farm is based on permaculture and agroecological principles, including ecological site planning, water-focused design, bio-diverse and integrated livestock farming, no-till organic vegetable production, and agroforestry; all with a goal towards local sustainability. Basically it is a 20 acre research project with the philosophy that “anything worth doing, is worth doing wrong…the first time.”

The name Okfuskee was inspired by the Okfuskee County, Oklahoma birth place of Woodie Guthrie, an American folk hero.
