With LEo Stallings
Farmer Leo Stallings is a third-generation farmer who farms over 200 acres just outside of Louisburg in Franklin County. His wife, Cathy, inherited the farm in 1976 and so he started early in life growing tobacco, field corn, soybeans, and wheat, and gardening on the side.
As he grew older, times changed and so did his crops. He phased out tobacco and increased the amount of produce grown on the farm. Leo has found he enjoys growing produce and selling to the community much more rewarding. He is gentle, soft-spoken and easy going.
Leo grows a variety of vegetables and fruits, such as cucumbers, yellow squash, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, collard greens, turnip and mustard greens, green beans, new potatoes, turnips, rutabagas, butterbeans, zucchini, beets, sweet corn, peppers, eggplant, field peas, cantaloupe, and watermelon
In addition to farming, Leo also welcomes visitors on a reservation basis, because he sees it as a creative and rewarding way to engage and share his passion with foodies.
T&K Farm is a very special place because it creates opportunities for visitors to set foot in the beautiful open fields and harvest fresh food for themselves. Leo works with visitors of all ages to teach them time tested techniques of how to properly grow and harvest native crops. This type of experience is the most enjoyable to visitors who are interested in reconnecting with where their food comes from.
This experience typically last 2 hours. Leo recommends bringing a container to carry harvested produce home with you.
