The reason we are here: to celebrate and thank our local farmers!
PepperFest started years ago as a taste test for Piedmont Biofarm ‘s new pepper varieties that farmer Doug Jones was developing to be well adapted for the N.C. climate. Since then, it’s grown quite a bit, and many more farmers have gotten involved, growing Doug’s pepper varieties as well as others that do well in N.C.
We are partnering with small NC farms to purchase their peppers for the Chef’s pepper dishes. Thank you to these sustainable farms and farmers for their work in strengthening our local foodshed and providing peppers for PepperFest!

IN GOOD HEART FARM
We are a small, family farm located in Pittsboro, NC. The farm is worked by Ben Shields & Patricia Parker. We often have the help of CSA members, other volunteers & interns around here & for that we are grateful!
We not only grow everything that we sell/offer through CSA, we start everything but our strawberry plants from seed ourselves. About half of our seeds are heirloom & none are GMO.
