Life on the Farm
Our family farm is centrally located in the North Carolina Piedmont. We are a family owned, small business that has started from the ground up. Our business grew out of an initial fundraising idea to help our daughter's softball team raise funds. After offering plants to a few other teams for similar fundraisers, the popularity was astounding. Since that time, we have partnered with dozens of groups for fundraisers and expanded services to provide retail ready plants to dozens of nurseries, garden centers and retail stores. Over the last three years, we have doubled our growing capacities. With over 17,000 square feet of heated greenhouse space and large outdoor growing areas, we continue to utilize innovation while working toward future growth.
In 2017, we have expanded our farm and now offer farm fresh produce. We have fresh eggs, cheese, sausage and "Made in NC" jams and jellies. Check our "Produce" page for store hours.
HS Howell Farms is dedicated to growing and providing premium quality plants and produce. Our family farm continues a fifth generation farming and nursery tradition. Visitors come as friends and leave as family.
