From Chatham County Agriculture Agent Debbie Roos:

In early June I got to spend time with our two Extension interns Kristin Peters and Kayla Ferro. Kristin just finished her M.S. in Forestry at NC State University and Kayla just finished her Master’s of Public Health at UNC. We started the day visiting Perry-winkle Farm to see the crew harvesting and preparing for the afternoon market. We ended the day visiting the Fearrington Farmers’ Market which was special because Kristin and Kayla got to see all the flowers and produce at the Perry-winkle Farm table that they saw being harvested and processed this morning!

You can find Perry-winkle Farm at the Fearrington Farmers’ Market and the Carrboro Farmers’ Market. Follow them on Instagram at @perrywinklefarm.
