The Farmers’ Daughter is a North Carolina Farm Fresh Certified Roadside Farm Market in Taylorsville, NC. It is our mission to provide the freshest and most delicious produce around! We are unique because if we do not grow something, we buy it locally, within Alexander County. The only exception is North Carolina Frazier Fir Christmas trees, which we have to drive 50-miles to provide them for our customers.
We encourage our customers to buy locally grown produce, because it helps our local food economy! It also allows us to educate our customers on: growing seasons, nutritional value, and food quality. These things all get lost when you shop from a “global” market! Our vegetables are vine ripened and picked at the peak of perfection! Don’t be surprised when you come by, if we go out into the garden and actually pick what you need!
We grow over 50 varieties of different vegetables. We do this to break away from the stereotypical produce that you see in the store that is “grown for shipping” and introduce you to real veggies that taste good, smell good, and look good! We pick our produce after it has been vine-ripened. Our produce is picked daily, during the growing season. Our farm stand is located on our 107-Acre family farm, on which we are raising our family’s 8th generation. Our produce is sold at our Roadside Farm Market to the general public and through our 50-member CSA program, and at the Downtown Hickory Farmers’ Market.
It’s summertime and we have all kinds of veggies and locally grown fruit available at our stand. Availability varies daily on some items. So, you might want to call before you drive out to see us. Our very own vegetables include: tomatoes (heirloom, roma, and red), mixed cherry tomatoes, cucumbers (green or white), squash, zucchini, […]

Well, my stories of my childhood started a dream in Lily’s head that we just couldn’t shake. We had a pet calf growing up, called Sally. We raised her on a bottle and ended up, my brother Ben and I could ride her bare back like a horse! No kidding! So, Lily had envisioned the […]
