YOUR FARMER

Charlotte Mercer, owner of The Farm at Juniper Bay in Bolivia, was born and raised in North Carolina.  She is married to Steve Mercer, owner of Coastal Transplants, and is a mother to two beautiful children, Dory and Worth Mercer.

 

Charlotte began raising her own chickens in 2012 to teach her children how to feed themselves and when the hens' production began to outgrow their family's needs, she began giving the eggs to friends and family.  She quickly grew in love with farming and providing for the community.  She began attending conferences and workshops to hone in her knowledge and in 2015 expanded her flock to include over 400 lovely egg-laying "ladies" (as she likes to call them)!

 

Charlotte established The Farm at Juniper Bay with a vision of creating an oasis for people to visit, work, and reconnect with the earth.   The farm gets its name from the geographical area that it resides is known as Juniper Bay.  The farm is part of a 350 acre track that has been in the Mercer family since the early 1970s.  Before it was The Farm at Juniper Bay, the land was farmed by her husband's father where he grew row crops.

 

In the next couple of years Charlotte hopes to expand the farm to include local wild-flower honey, ground-raised pork, and forestry.
