Semora, North Carolina
Forty North is a little farm that started with a very simple idea – that we could grow food for our friends & larger communities, have a rich experience, and a lot of fun in the process.
There’s an old saying – “Forty going North,” that means to do something with great gusto or enthusiasm…which is a sort of de facto inspiration for both of our lives, and what we witness on a daily basis with our plants & animals.
Forty North is grounded in an appreciation for and love of animals, along with intense energy around the process of growing & eating & living.
