About Us

We are a small, family farm located in Pittsboro, NC. The farm is worked by Ben Shields & Patricia Parker. We often have the help of CSA members, other volunteers & interns around here & for that we are grateful!

We not only grow everything that we sell/offer through CSA, we start everything but our strawberry plants from seed ourselves.  About half of our seeds are heirloom & none are GMO.

Please have a look around to learn more about us. If you have any questions, always feel free to send us an email at or call/text us at (919) 637-0666 or (919) 417-0705.

    We’ve been with Ben and Patricia for 5+ years and have always been happy with the wonderful variety of veggies throughout the year. Having visited and helped out on the farm many times, I can personally vouch for the high standards (beyond Organic) and effort that they put into every crop season after season. Not to mention that they are wonderful people, and give even more back to the community through their ‘Farm It Forward’ program.

    I can’t speak highly enough of In Good Heart Farm. Ben and Patricia (Elliott too) are amazing people and grow the best veggies around. They will ease you into their CSA if you are new to local eating and offer a large variety of veggie options. Everything tastes better than if you were to buy it at the store. My three year old loves munching on their delicious carrots raw, but won’t touch a store bought carrot unless its cooked. She says it just doesn’t taste the same! She is so right! It’s not just the carrots, everything they grow is superior!

    Ben and Patricia are really some of the nicest and most genuine people you’ll ever meet, so passionate about what they do. It really shows in the quality of their produce.

    I could go on and on about how fantastic this CSA is…but…really…if you want to feed your family local and sustainably grown produce… join.

    I have been a CSA member with In Good Heart for nearly 4 years, and I could not recommend it enough. The produce is always high caliber – beautiful, delicious, and sustainably grown. Participating in the CSA has helped me to eat more healthily, and the cost is a great value for the amount and quality of produce you receive every week.

    Farm owners Ben and Patricia are thoughtful about what they grow, choosing an interesting selection of produce throughout the seasons, which means you always have a lot of diversity in your weekly share. They are also very helpful in providing tips and tricks for cooking, prepping, and storing all of your veggie treats.

    There is a real sense of community around the CSA, with weekly emails about your farm share, annual farm parties, and friendly hellos in abundance. Ben and Patricia put a great deal of love and care into running their farm, and it comes through in everything they do. If you are looking for a CSA, you couldn’t choose better!
