Farm Family Tradition
Phillips Farms is proud of its long history of family ownership and quality farm products serving central North Carolina for over 100 years. Lee Phillips, the current owner, purchased Phillips Farms from his grandfather’s estate, William Busbee Ennis, in 1976. The farm’s primary crops were straw, hay and tobacco. In 1996 Phillips Farms began a successful strawberry picking farm frequented by thousands of adults and their children every year. In response to public health concerns and changes in the market, Phillips Farms ceased farming tobacco products in 1998.
To this day, Phillips Farms continues farming hay, straw, corn and strawberry crops at various seasons throughout the year and sells Christmas trees every December. The farm’s major attractions are the family Corn Maze and Haunted Farm. Thousands of families visit the farm for a healthy dose of family entertainment and a little scare, all in good fun.
Phillips Farms Today
Most of the farm’s daily operations are now managed by Lee’s son, Mike Phillips. Mike intends to carry on the family tradition of serving the community with healthy products and good clean fun for his generation, and generations to come.
