Welcome to Renfrow Farms.

Renfrow Farms and our sister business Renfrow Hardware are family owned and operated, the store established in 1900 and the farm started in 2011 – 111 years and 5 generations later.  We are bringing this old-timey hardware and general store back to its roots – agriculture, farming, and multi-generational family involvement.

We provide our sustainably and naturally grown fruits, vegetables, nuts, flowers, and honey to folks through local restaurant sales, weekly produce boxes preordered through our weekly Monday evening newsletter email (2020 season currently underway), hardware store offerings throughout the week, and floral design services for weddings, parties, and other events.

Renfrow Farms is the embodiment of Renfrow Hardware’s commitment to fostering community and growing relationships around food, farming, and sustainability in Matthews and the greater Charlotte region. We are educating the next generation of home gardeners through hosting on-farm gardening classes. We are committed to encouraging and empowering our community members to join the local foods movement in a most exciting and powerful way – by growing their own food.

Come and grow with Renfrow’s.
