Spain Farm

The Spain Farm is a fourth generation small farm tucked away between the woods and urban growth in Raleigh, North Carolina.  We are innovatively trying to take dominion over the land by using stewardship techniques to preserve the land for the next generation. Our philosophy is to work together with the animals and the food we grow; instead of trying to artificially stimulate them, we make them our partners.  We believe that in creating a poyculture on the farm we will encounter less diesease from our fruits and vegetables and less sickness from our animals.  We want to build up our soils with natural fertilizers so that our pastures and fields are lush and full with benefical insects.  

Our specialty is shiitake mushrooms.  Grown in the woods on logs, our mushrooms are sheltered under the shade, using the most natural fertilizer available, fresh water.  We also grow paw paws and figs.  We raise muscovy ducks for meat.  Muscovy duck meat is less greasy than most duck meat and they have a large breast.  Our other ducks include Khaki Campbells and Cayuga which give us wonderfully rich eggs.  Our flock of chickens provide us with bright yellow yolks.  We also from time to time have chicken meat as well.  The chickens and ducks are pasture raised and moved to a different paddock each week to insure new pickings of insects and bugs daily.  The alpine goats are also moved every week to a new paddock.   

Two guardian livestock dogs, Maggie and Sampson, work in harmony to keep everyone safe.  

New this year will be quail, honey from our honey bees, elderberry and goat milk skin products.  We are always open to new ideas and love to hear new suggestions from our customers.  

We provide to multiple restaurants in the triangle area ranging from eastern North Carolina to the Piedmont.  We can be found at the Durham Farmer's market on Saturdays from 8:00 am to 12:00 (April to November) and 10:00 to 12:00 (December thru March).  Customers are welcome to come to the farm by appointment.  

We use no pesticides on our food or antibiotics on our animals.  There is no need because the food we grow and the animals we raise help each other in a wonderful cycle, just as they were created.  We try to do our best in everything we grow, to nurture our mushrooms, goats and other facets of our operation in order to uphold our end of the bargain, in short to be good stewards.
