Working Landscapes is a non-profit organization based in Warren County, NC. Our mission is to create more sustainable livelihoods for people in the Warren County region through stewardship of natural and cultural assets.
What is a working landscape? It’s a place that works—economically, environmentally, and socially. A working landscape is:
A productive landscape—a place where farms, forests and small towns all contribute to a vibrant economy and community;
A healthy landscape—both in terms of environmental and human health;
An authentic landscape—in which we recognize that our opportunities are rooted in our natural, cultural, and human assets.
We invite you to learn more about our vision for the future of the Warren County region and join us as we create opportunity in this place we love.
First Friday Poetry Night, brought to you by Warren County Artists' Market, will take place as usual this Friday at the cafe-formerly-known-as-Lloyd's Bakery! And Susan Long of Lloyd's will be baking for us too! Come out and join us: 7:30-9:30 PM. ... See MoreSee Less
Lloyd's Bakery, which has been operating out of Working Landscapes' Food Hub cafe/kitchen, is closing; its last day of operations will be March 31. For health reasons, proprietor Susan Long is going to be taking a break from baking. We will miss Susan's baking, and we really appreciate the contribution her bakery made to downtown Warrenton. She has been great to work with, and we wish her the best!
For lovers of baked treats, the good news is that a new bakery/cake venture will be starting soon in the same spot! During the transition, Working Landscapes will be keeping the door open--Kierra and Amanda will continue to serve coffee and espresso drinks with a smile! The hours will remain the same for the time being. Stop in and pay them a visit! ... See MoreSee Less
Yesterday, Linda Maggio, sole proprietor of Red Feather Farms in Louisburg, NC received an inspection from the NCDA Food and Drug Protection Division in order to begin offering her farmers market customers locally raised and made chicken bone broth. This amazing broth is made using the keels, backs, wings and feet of their pastured chickens. The broth is simmered for hours in order to release the marrow and minerals from the bones. No added stabilizers, artificial flavors or salt. My customers use it in soups, stews, or drink it as a broth. Great for paleo diets and gluten free cooking.
Linda of Red Feather Farm describes her farm's offerings: "We offer our customers eggs from 100% free ranging chickens. Our breeds are Rhode Island Reds, Black Austrlorps, Buff Orpingtons, Morans, Araucuna's and Narragansett Turkeys. Our meats are all pasture raised and the pastures are at least 50% native grasses and plants. Our chicken, turkey, and lamb are raised with the most strict attention to their happiness and health because happy content animals will provide the most flavorful and nutritious food. Red Feather Farms is at the Mid-Town Farmers Market, located at the Commons at North Hills in Raleigh every Saturday from 8 am until 12 pm April 15 thru Nov 6. I also have a Winter Market at the same location, on Saturdays from Nov- March. For our customer's convenience, we have a weekly email newsletter they can use to pre-order our products. Our farm is in Louisburg NC and can be reached at 919-853-3680 or email@example.com"
Working Landscapes is proud to work with Linda to bring this delicious, locally sourced product to market!
