  • History | Wallace Farm


Wallace Farm is the heart of a family… a way of life. We take pride in the work of seven generations of Wallace family members.

Our family started farming this land in 1863, growing crops and raising livestock. In 1945, we started a dairy operation and shortly after, added a poultry operation. In the 1960s, we added composting to the existing crop, dairy and poultry operations, growing to our current level in the early 1990s.

In 1997, ownership and operations were transitioned to Johnny, Shelby and Eric Wallace. They successfully operated Wallace Farm until 2014. At that time, Johnny and Shelby retired, so Michelle joined Eric to continue the family business.

The next generation is now here! Trevor Wallace graduated from NCSU in May 2022 and has joined to team. He represents the 7th generation of Wallaces here at Wallace Farm.

Our current agricultural activities include producing hay and a wide range of compost, soil, and mulch.
