About Us

Proud to be family owned and operated for over 70 years. Although we no longer farm cotton, we do have fresh strawberries in the spring and gorgeous pumpkins in the fall. We also offer a fun family experience with hayrides, covered picnic tables, and activities for kids of all ages.

After pickin’ and playin’, come visit the sales tent for a refreshing cold slushie or unwind with a hot cup of coffee or cocoa. And while you’re there check out our doughnuts, funnel cakes, ice cream and other snacks.

The farm is centrally located in the Ballantyne Area, at the intersection of Johnston Rd and Providence Rd West.

What’s Happening at the Farm…

Hall Family Farm

We are open 9 am to 10 pm Friday and Saturday, 9 am to 6 pm Sunday. We have plenty of pumpkins smaller than a basketball and plenty fairly large pumpkins, but not too many mid-sized pumpkins.

I have shut down comments to preserve the civility of this page. I found this picture of our community bulletin board we put on the farm in April 2008, our very first year of strawberries. The white printed paper above the world map explains the map. It says: "We have been astounded and pleased by the national and international backgrounds of our customers and have created this display to share that information with everyone. We invite you to place a push-pin in your state/country of origin before you became a Charlottean." Lara and I and all of our staff have worked tirelessly these past 11 years to make this farm a welcoming place for the community. She and I spent many years growing up overseas, exposed to diversity far richer than Charlotte had 40 years ago. I am a biracial American raised in a country that frowned on people like us, and still does today. Our life experiences shaped our worldview and guided us in what we wanted our business to be. That first strawberry season when we opened our family farm to the public for the first time ever, we were so excited to see the plethora of peoples and ethnicities coming out to pick our strawberries. Ever since we have had the pleasure of welcoming hundreds of thousands of customers onto our farm.

Today we face this enormous public backlash for protecting an employee who made a naive and foolish error who, for those who bother to get to know her, is a loving and caring person for all human beings no matter their ethnicity, education level, or position in society, and especially children. We question why the St. Luke woman of faith, who had a private conversation with my wife and professed to seek to defuse the misunderstanding privately and civilly, was compelled to completely distort and misrepresent the situation to the media, a media that revels in conflict and personal destruction. These forces have shattered our vision of the future of our farm. I close this missive with deep, heartfelt appreciation and thanks to our many customers and friends who know who we really are and have continued to support us, who have sent us both public and private statements of support, and who have commended our decision to defend an innocent employee. If not for your faithful words of encouragement, we would have locked the gates and be done with this fiasco.
