OUR STORY

Walking in
the footsteps
of nature.


When you ask how Juneberry Ridge came to be, our
reply is always "nature put out a call, and we answered."
More than a decade later, nature is still the boss, and we
work every day to give it, and you, our best.

Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.

How Juneberry
took root.


 

We'd like to say it all began with a dream, but in fact, it began with a challenge; the dream came later. When Judy Carpenter first bought the land that became Juneberry Ridge, it was because she had been told she couldn't do something—that as a woman, despite being a champion, she should find her own place to do competitive clay target shooting. So she did.

Yet as she was creating what would become a renowned five-stand destination, the land spoke to her—and, more importantly, she listened. Her vision for the land (or you might say, its vision for us), was to preserve, deepen, and share its natural abundance. So Juneberry Ridge was born, as a working farm, a place to meet or retreat into nature, and a continuously evolving model for sustainability—always rewriting what it means to grow.

A Piedmont
gem.

Set in the rolling countryside of the Piedmont plateau, the Ridge is scenic as far as the eye can see: to the west, the Blue Ridge Mountains; to the east, the Atlantic coast. And below, the Hardy Creek makes its lazy way—the only lazy thing you'll see on our farm.

Not just
sustainable,
regenerative.

The word "sustainability" gets thrown around so much, it's almost lost meaning. That's not for us. We want to infuse new meaning, to live and grow and explore in ways that feed the land, its people and our community as one.

The Ridge, the soil, and you.

We'll be honest: nature is our first love. But hospitality has become a close second, because nourishing others is in our mission—and nothing nourishes like nature. We've seen ourselves how transformative Juneberry Ridge can be—for teams, for individuals, even for those of us who work and live here. And we can't wait to share.

Empowering a greener future.

You can't power a farm with good intentions. But you can insist those intentions guide the energy you choose. As North Carolina's largest residential renewable energy system, we build, harvest, host, and live in a "pursuit of a better way."
