Old Milburnie Farm is a sustainable vegetable, poultry and mushroom farm in Raleigh, NC. The farm is a joint venture of Daniel Dayton and Erika Gutierrez. The couple have decided to implement their love of agriculture to provide healthy, sustainable products for Raleigh and the surrounding environs. Daniel is a Raleigh native. His passion for farming began in high school where he volunteered on the school farm. This initial interest led him to the mountains of NC for his undergraduate studies at Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa. During his time at WWC, Daniel worked on the college’s 5 acre garden. After college, Daniel spent two years in Mali working as an agricultural extension agent with the US Peace Corps. He’s currently earning an MS degree from NC State. Erika grew up New Bern. Unbeknownst to her, an interest in agriculture also began at a young age with the cultivation of a small vegetable garden and growing up along the Neuse and Trent Rivers. Erika has had a seemingly unconventional route to agriculture. Whether it was fate, a connection to nature, or discontent with impersonal communities, throughout this time, continual reevaluation of her interests in community, health, and land stewardship led her to farming.

Audrey Lin and Debbie Donnald have been involved with the agricultural industry for several years. Two Chicks Farm was started in 2009 and is a small farm located in Hillsborough, NC. They started selling produce at farmer’s markets in 2009. After receiving many requests for their fermented products, acidified pickles and pepper jellies to be sold more widely than once a week farmers markets they have decided to pursue marketing these products only.
Audrey and Debbie make raw unpasteurized lacto-fermented gourmet sauerkraut, kimchi, dill pickles and other seasonal products. To make these products they use sustainably grown produce from Two Chicks Farm and other local organic farms. These products have been sold at farmer’s markets and small retail locations over the past several years and have been produced in quantities to meet the demands of current customers. When these products were first introduced at farmers markets there was a small customer base but as word has spread about the importance of probiotics and the incredible flavor of these products the demand has increased.
Audrey and Debbie started the process of making gourmet pepper jellies because they love growing many types of peppers. The unsold peppers from the farmers markets became the catalyst to create several varieties of pepper jellies. One of the first products made by Audrey and Debbie is pickled beets and it is still a customer favorite.
