Bushy Tail Farm, located in Saxapahaw, NC, produces vegetables in all four seasons and specializes in fall and winter vegetable production. Owned and operated by Liz Clore, Bushy Tail began selling vegetables in fall 2012. We currently run two CSA sessions, one from May-July, and the other Oct-Dec and sell at the South Durham farmers’ market. We love roots and greens!
Bushy Tail Farm is growing slowly and incrementally. We began as an idea in 2009 when Murray Clore, an amazing man, father, and grandfather, passed away and left 75 acres in Saxapahaw, which had been in his family for over 200 years. Triggered by the reminder that she had access to this land, Liz decided to establish an agricultural operation on the property. After reading many life-changing words on sustainable farming, she began training to establish a small vegetable, fruit, and livestock farm inspired by the elegant systems of surrounding farms and renowned farmers such as Joel Salatin and Elliot Coleman. We are lucky and thankful to be in an area as supportive and enthusiastic as the triangle.
We hope each day we work with our animals and vegetables they bring to mind one of the favorite sayings Liz’s grandfather and father taught her–“bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.”
