Eat Local: Try these sources for fresh food

Farmers keep farming, no matter what is happening in the world around them. This is true in Davie County.

“Our farmers keep on doing what they do best – growing food for people,” said Davie Extension horticultural agent Susan Hawkins.

Several Davie farmers sell the food they raise directly to consumers. Here is a sampling of the farms that sell directly to consumers.

• Cherry Hill Farm is selling strawberries, but has a farm stand and will be selling vegetables a little later in the season. Cherry Hill also has pork sometimes. The address is 1293 Cherry Hill Road, Mocksville and the phone number is 336-904-3276. Farm stand hours are Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturday 8:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Call for availability or check Cherry Hill’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Cherry-Hill-Farm-LLC-813951515360073/).
