2021 NCSPA Member Spotlight-McAdams Farm

Each month on the first and fifteenth, we will spotlight our members in a new series. We want to promote you, our members, to showcase the work you put into raising sheep. If you are interested in having your farm spotlighted, email Education Committee Chair: Amy Kidd at followyourarrowfarm@gmail.com or Promotions/Marketing Committee Chair: Helene Dooley at skybrookefarm@gmail.com

The first of each month will spotlight a member farm that primarily markets their lamb products, and the fifteenth of the month will spotlight a member farm that primarily markets their fiber products. We look forward to promoting our members and hope you enjoy this new series.

March Lamb Farm Spotlight: McAdams Farm

Since 1884, the McAdams family has been farming in the Efland community in Orange county. The current farming operation includes Howard and Karen McAdams, as well as daughters Callie and Elizabeth pitching in at times. They also have some exceptional employees who help manage it all.  Current production includes all kinds of vegetables and tomatoes, pick your own strawberries, peaches, cut flowers, beef cattle, and sheep. Almost all of the lambs from Karen’s twenty-five Katahdin ewes are processed and sold retail at their farm stand and at the Carrboro Farmer’s Market. Emphasis on the breeding flock is being made on parasite resistance and increasing frame size.
