Billy Mason – Farming Organically at Deep Chatham Gardens

Deep Chatham Gardens is nestled on the western side of a hill along Hwy 64 West near Siler City, centrally located in Chatham County, NC. Owned by the multi-talented Billy Mason, it is the site of a small farm that uses organic methods to grow dozens of types of Heirloom Tomatoes and fantastic produce, including wonderful figs and potted flowering plants.

In addition to being quite the small grower, Billy Mason is also a gemologist hand making jewelry from stones of every kind, those found in Chatham County, which he polishes and cuts, as well as more traditional gemstones.  See Mystic Merchant.
