Fading D Farm

FadingD smLocated in Salisbury, Fading D Farm specializes in Water Buffalo cheese! For years, Faythe and David DiLoreto have been working on getting their creamery up and running. At this time, Fading D Farm is the only working water buffalo dairy in North Carolina.

A number of Italian cheeses are considered authentic only if made with water buffalo milk. Who knew??

Water buffalo milk averages higher fat and protein content than cow’s milk, making their cheese extra creamy and rich. Faythe, as the head cheesemaker, handcrafts each of the artisanal cheeses. She makes a variety of fresh cheeses. 

Products: A Taleggio type, a buffalo version of Bel Paese and one that is similar to Caciocavallo and she is rapidly closing in on the elusive Mozzarella di Bufala. Additionally, she produces a sweet Ricotta. Buffalo meat, eggs and more might also be available at the market.

They never use any pesticides or herbicides on their farm, partly to protect their honey bee operation. They also offer some of the freshest farm eggs around. Their turkeys and chickens range freely on their 20-acre farm, and can often be found relaxing on the front porch or dust bathing in the woods. They supplement the poultry's nutrition, as needed, with certified organic, non-GMO, soy free, and hormone free products to ensure a balanced diet year round. Less is more when it comes to nature and the fruits it naturally bares.

Twin Oak Farms originated around the depression under owner James Patterson. This family run farm continued to operate under the supervision of his two sons, Frank and Carl, until the mid 70's. The brothers split the business and Frank continued the operation as Frank Patterson Farm. In the mid 1990's, Tim Sloop and Greg Hartsell assumed responsibility of Frank Patterson Farms and continue to operate under that name as mainly a wholesale vegetable producer.

As farmers' markets became popular in many areas, Tim & Greg were excited about new opportunities to connect directly with local folks. In an effort to pay homage to the original farm, they revived the Twin Oak Farms name. Twin Oak Farms currently grows around 40 acres of vegetables each year. Tomatoes continue to be the main crop including greenhouse grown and conventional field grown tomatoes including heirlooms, roma, yellow and several red varieties. 

Products: Tomatoes, strawberries, asparagus, lettuce, broccoli, kale, swiss chard, basil, cilantro, dill, cabbage, potatoes, snow peas, snap peas, green beans, yellow squash, zucchini, cucumbers, eggplant, okra, peppers, cantaloupe, and watermelon.
