The Barn of Chapel Hill is a new twenty-two acre family farm, located only 12 miles from downtown Chapel Hill. We will begin establishing our chestnut orchards and flower fields in the spring of 2016, and we look forward to welcoming visitors to the farm next year.
Built in 1864 in Marcy, New York, our historic barn will be relocated to the farm this summer. The beautiful hand-hewn hemlock beams of the original structure will remain intact, while additional square footage will be added to fully modernize the space for farm events and to allow for the proper storage and processing of our agricultural products and equipment.
The farm’s flower fields and orchards will create a stunning backdrop for wedding ceremonies, receptions, and other special events, while also providing fresh cut flowers that can be professionally arranged by our in-house florist.
As a flower and tree farm, The Barn of Chapel Hill supports state and national efforts to protect pollinators, and we will have several on-site beehives. Proceeds from the honey produced on the farm will be donated to local children’s charities and the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
The Barn of Chapel Hill is excited to be a part of the state’s growing Agritourism industry, and we are proud members of the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association, the NC Agritourism Networking Association, and the National Young Farmer’s Coalition.
