With Warren Brothers, Brothers Farm, La Grange, NC
Warren has been a farmer on Brothers Farm in La Grange, NC, all his life. He grew up farming tobacco and traditional crops, but about twelve years ago, he decided to make the switch to all-natural vegetables, herbs and flowers. He was certified "organic" but quickly found out that he didn't like paperwork, so now he raises vegetables "all natural" and his customers know that he is mindful. He serves many area restaurants in Kinston, New Bern and Greenville, and also offers a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) package for folks who want to buy a bag of fresh produce each week. He offers his excess fresh produce to Mary's Kitchen, the soup kitchen in Kinston. He has been featured on the award-winning PBS show, "A Chef's Life" and is currently one of Chef Vivian Howard’s produce suppliers.
Warren and his wife Jane moved this house from the Bryan farm when they generously donated it after a fire destroyed their home. They restored it and added on, using materials from all over the county. Guests will enjoy the quiet and peaceful pace of this rustic elegant 1853 farmhouse which features five finely appointed bedrooms, and plenty of Southern hospitality. Your experience includes a good time: try an oyster or cheeseburger lunch at the Boiler Room and watch a ball game at the bar, choose a wine tasting at Chef and the Farmer on Saturdays from 2-5, enjoy Craft beer at Mother Earth Brewery, an appetizer at Ginger 108, or the award-winning "Chef and the Farmer" restaurant in Kinston.
Enjoy a farm tour with Warren #barefootfarmer the next morning! He loves to give farm tours, usually barefooted, as he is happiest when he is "rooted" to the land. He enjoys showing people all the stages of the vegetable, herb and flower seasons.
