Stage your wedding portraits here. We have begun making our Cabin Grounds available to photographers for Wedding Portraits.

You'll be pleasantly surprised as you explore our park-like - 55 acre farm - that is entirely in Conservation Easement with the Tar River Land Conservancy. We're just a 45-minute drive, northeast of Raleigh (see Location Map and Driving Directions below) in Rocky Ford, NC.  We have recently been featured in Diane Daniel's travel guidebook "Farm Fresh North Carolina" and also the NC Department of Cultural Resources guidebook "Homegrown Handmade - Art Roads and Farm Trails". Please call and let us know you are planning to visit though - that's just country etiquette.

Bob's Outdoor Wood-fired Oven








Our outdoor, Pompeii-style, Wood-fired Oven is fully operational (see first Tomato Pie photo above).
After nearly three years since the planning and initial construction was begun, the focal point of our Outdoor Picnic/Dining Area near our Log Cabin is finally complete.
You can download an Oven Construction (9.0MB .pdf) Document and view the chronology of how Bob built the Oven.
We launched both the Franklin BreadWorks Dining and Entertainment, and Lynch Creek Farm Artisan Bakery in 2012.
