Rudd Farm is a fourth generation Guilford County farm in Greensboro, NC. It was started as a tobacco farm by Kenneth’s grandfather in the early 1900s. From that time until 2000, tobacco and wheat were the main crops. In 2000, the family decided to diversify, and planted their first strawberry crop. The first harvest of Chandler strawberries (1 and 1/3 acres) was in May 2001. Twenty years later, we now grow 15 acres of strawberries, including four different varieties.
The family stopped growing tobacco in 2004 so they could concentrate on growing their strawberry and produce business. In 2005, they began growing greenhouse tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers.
The farm’s on-site produce stand is open 6 to 7 months a year during the spring, summer, and fall growing seasons. We are located just outside the city of Greensboro and less than 1/2 mile from Highway 29. The location uniquely affords many customers the experience of setting foot on a family farm and seeing agriculture in action, bringing “farm-to-table” to life for adults and children alike, but with the convenience of staying close to home to find fresh, locally-grown produce.
