About Wynfield Creek Homestead

Established 1995 - Huntersville, North Carolina

John and Janet Marek established their suburban homestead on a half-acre lot in the Wynfield Creek neighborhood in 1995, and have continued their pursuit of a simple, authentic life there ever since. In 2014, John became a certified Square Foot Gardening instructor and frequently offers talks and demonstrations on the subject. At the homestead, he maintains a potager (kitchen garden) of Square Foot beds which produce bountiful crops of lettuce, carrots, beans, squash, tomatoes, strawberries, spinach, radishes and kale.

Market Garden - Coming Summer 2018

Beginning in the spring of 2018, the Mareks are planting a larger market garden on a site in Anson County with the intent of offering "Heirloom Produce from Our Garden to Your Table" at the Wadesboro Farmers Market in the summer. See the EVENTS page for a listing of dates and times. They are committed to growing authentic, healthy food in a sustainable, safe and eco-friendly way. All their produce is grown naturally from non-GMO seeds without chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. They do occasionally apply organic amendments and treatments such as blood meal, neem oil and copper salts to improve yields and reduce the impact of pests and diseases.  

Vegetable Variety and Pricing

At Wynfield Creek Homestead, the Mareks work hard to select and grow the finest tasting vegetables you will find. Focusing on heirloom varieties allows them to grow vegetables with tremendous flavor. Typically, heirlooms are not found in the supermarket because they do not store or travel well. Following is a list of vegetables slated for production in 2018. This is the plan. Mother Nature is also working on her plan for the growing season and sometimes the plans don't mesh. They do the best we can with what they know, but occasionally, Mother Nature gets the best of certain vegetables. Wynfield Creek Homestead will use CSA-style pricing in which boxes of mixed produce representing the day's harvest will be sold a a fixed price point.
