Triangle Ferment Fest 2019 Sponsors

We’re pleased to announce the Triangle Ferment Fest’s Signature Sponsor: Harmony Farms!

Natural Foods * Supplements * Organic Juice * Smoothie & Organic Coffee Bar

Harmony Farms was started in 1974 by Marian Wall and Tommy Dean as a natural grocer and supplement store to bring the cleanest foods possible to the community. Originally located in Chapel Hill, Marian moved it to Raleigh two years later, and then opened the store in its current location in 1984.

The current owners, Nancy and Steve Long, individually came to Harmony Farms as customers in the late 1990s, both dedicated to bringing healing practices to area residents, Nancy as a Doctor of Naturopathy, and Steve as a Certified Health Specialist. Not long after Nancy and Steve met, they realized they had similar goals and dreams — to escape corporate America and offer healing practices in a sustainable environment. Nancy and Steve married in 2004, and a year later, when Marian decided to sell the store, she contacted the Longs, who purchased it from her. They were honored to take over the iconic store and build upon the amazing foundation Marian had built. 

To this day, Harmony Farms is dedicated to the very best and cleanest vendors of organic foods and products. They are also dedicated to:

  • Growing & educating a healthy community
  • Supporting organic & sustainable practices
  • Qualified sourcing & local vendors

Harmony Farms’ dedication to local vendors is seen in their being the first to support and carry Tribucha and Lyrix Elixirs kombucha in their store!

Harmony Farms is located in North Raleigh, at the corner of Creedmoor and Millbrook. Stop in and check out their wide selection of fermented foods the next time you’re in the area. harmony-farms.net
