Scott and Bobbie Thomas

Thomas Pottery Farm is located in the upper part of Moore County just above the Westmoore Community.
Scott and Bobbie Thomas have a small farm in which they grow local produce, raise a few broilers each Spring and have several laying hens. Growing organic or as close to it as possible is their goal for produce and raising chickens.

By using mostly organic seed varieties they strive to grow heirlooms and Non GMO vegetables. Each season kitchen compost and composted manures are used to amend the soil.
Pest and disease is managed by checking plants daily and removing insects or diseased plant material by hand thus keeping these problems under control.

Chickens are treated with the utmost care. Using electric netting and a chicken tractor (laying and roosting house on wheels) they free range in grassy pastures.
As peeps, they are raised on organic chick starter containing all goodness with no antibiotics. Adult chickens are fed all grain laying pellets and organic feed containing flax, vitamins and probiotics. Added to their staple diet is occasional vegetable scraps, weeds, melons and pumpkins when in season. Pests are managed using garlic, diatomaceous earth and pine oil. Eggs are gathered daily and refrigerated.

Make plans to visit Thomas Pottery Farm to see their farm grow.

High Tunnel Greenhouses

Here is what is new to our farm.  Two high-tunnels. 20x70 and 20x36.  What is so cool is the smaller one is on a rail systems so you can extend the season in one area and then in another, so the growing space is 70' also. We are ready to plant and are growing rye in the larger tunnel space.  Our chickens are going to love their "indoor" grazing arena especially when it snows.  I plan to plant some cool crops in the smaller one today!
