I very much enjoyed my trip to Millstone Meadows Daylily Farm in Morganton, NC. I’ve made a slideshow for you–please enjoy!
Mark with his son and daughter.
Mark’s son is studying to be a chef at the local community college but also works at a restaurant downtown.
I love Sara’s boot right outside the door ready to go. She was preparing a large meal for their guest that evening and was super busy—she’s the chef and Mark is the farmer.
The farm is set in the rolling foothills of the Appalachian mountains. It’s about an hour from my home and I’ll be going back. Sara and Mark are very charming folks and their son and daughter are well spoken about the business.
Mark dug lilies all day long and sold them in nice fat bunches. It was 90+ degrees and he said it was perfect weather for growing daylilies. He very much loves the farm. He and Sara got married here and now they have opened it up to other events. Sara caters both on the farm and elsewhere using quality organically grown produce.

If you are nuts about front porches like I am–then head over to Front Porch Ideas and More. While I was snapping pictures of the pretty red chairs above—I thought of Mary and Dave who travel the USA and document front porches. I think she will love the Millstone Meadows Farm front porch–don’t you?
