Home Grown …Home Made…Home Crafted
The fruit crops are Scuppernong and Muscadine grapes from vines planted by the owner’s dad over 40 years ago. Those and the heirloom pears and figs are sold fresh when not being used to make our wonderful jellies and preserves.
The owners began growing organic Shiitake mushrooms in 2006 through a research program at NC A&T University. They now have close to 700 inoculated mushroom logs.
SandyCreek Farm is a founding member of the North Carolina Mushroom Growers Association and the Lexington Farmers Market Association.

Lexington and Davidson County are home to four wineries, each growing grapes or fruits for their wine. Grape growers have found the land that once grew tobacco great for producing grapes. Located just south of the Yadkin Valley Wine Appellation, Davidson County has become one of the United States’ newest federally designated viticulture regions. Lexington wineries have developed the Southern Gateway Wine Trail which you can follow by picking up a brochure at any of the locations.
