A Thousand Hills Farm was established in 2018 after dreaming for many years. We are a pesticide-free farm raising chickens for eggs and compost, goats for milk and soap making, and bees for honey and wax.
We sell our chickens as laying hens at one year. We started with 2 hives of bees in early 2019 and are now up to 36 hives.
We are certified sellers of honey bees—queens, nucs, and hives—and our honey is also certified Real NC honey by the NC Department of Agriculture. We are fascinated by the diligence of the honey bee and love teaching others about managing them.
We have ADGA registered Nubian goats and currently have a herd of ten. Springtime is so much fun with young goat antics!
We have a garden comprised of just under an acre and grow squash, zucchini, different types of cucumbers, tomatoes, okra, bell peppers, banana peppers, jalapeños, habanero and cayenne peppers, cantaloupe, and succession plantings of Ambrosia corn. We sell farm fresh eggs, local honey, and seasonal vegetables along with plants from our greenhouse on Saturdays from 9-12 at the corner of Sunset Drive and N 14th St in Bessemer City. We deliver eggs, honey, and veggies weekly or bi-weekly as needed by our customers. We desire to give freshness at its best from our farm to your table the same day we pick if possible.
