Humbug Farm was established in 1993. The name is a play on sheep (as in baaaa humbug!). Since its beginning the farm has grown in both livestock and acreage.
Humbug Farm raises Border Leicester sheep for show and sale. Of course, by-products such as wool, lamb, and finished goods from their renewable fleeces are also available.
Humbug Farm also raises Nubian and Saanen dairy goats for milk. I've fallen in love with cheesemaking. Currently, I am experimenting with flavored chevre. I do make some savory flavors, but I'm having fun expanding my line of fruit flavored chevre. It's great used on sandwiches in place of mayonnaise.
Farming on a small scale (less than 50 acres) is far from an exact science. Seasons, weather, current sales, breeding time and coyotes all cause product availability to change from week to week.
What's New for 2014
As of May 20, 2011 ALL sheep & goats two years of age and older are test negative for OPP/CAE & Johnes
This is a really nice festival. It is held at the Fred G Bond Metro Park on High House Rd in Cary. Meandering paved paths through shady woods let you visit the vendors, arts and entertainment, kid friendly activities and food booths at your leisure. Lots of free parking!
I'll be in Section F, which is near the end.
Thank you to all my customers who support
