About Cindy Econopouly Soehner
I lived my high school years in Greece, and my family welcomed assorted visitors from various countries. My farming may have been inspired by seeing Greek shepherds guiding sheep or turkeys down city streets; or maybe it was the sights and smells of fruits and vegetables piled high on tables at weekly farmers' markets in the 1970's. My husband John and I ultimately switched to organic farming because we like working for ourselves, we like working outdoors, and we like people. Our occupation necessitates all of these. Our three adult children have all worked on the farm, and our daughter still does.
Cindy Econopouly Soehner purchased this Farmhouse in 1992
Why Cindy Econopouly Soehner chose Chapel Hill
We love our land because we farm fruits and vegetables beside the woods with deer, foxes, and herons, but we're just minutes away from the International Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Durham, and Raleigh.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
We grow organic vegetables and prepare great vegetarian meals; guests may chose to purchase our meal plan rather than eating daily at restaurants. Already included in our fee is the choice to fix yourself a light breakfast in our kitchen, but we also offer the option of purchasing lunches and/or dinners for $7/meal per person with 12 hours advance notice.

Great couple,felt like home
Good place to stay

Home away from home...
Hosts Cindy & John are kind, welcoming and very hard working owners of a beautiful organic farm very conveniently located in the triangle area. The surroundings and accommodations are modest yet very inviting, informal and relaxed. They have a beautiful family and guests are invited to dine with them in the kitchen over delicious home grown vegetables. The rooms are well air conditioned, clean and comfortable. If I am able to return to the area for further art education... I hope I will be able to stay on the farm again... Thank you...I really enjoyed my stay...
We loved spending time with you, Diane, and you're always welcome back!
Weekend in NC
The guests were very accommodating and friendly. The room was was very nice and cool. The family was very nice nice to get to know and pancakes on Sunday morning were really a treat.
Good location, Great hosts and awesome farm. Accommodations were just what I needed.
We adored spending time with Lucretia, and hope she returns!
Excellent people, excellent value!
My wife and I spent a week at the farm and had a great time! Cindy, her family, and workers are all super nice people - very friendly, inviting, and helpful. The room is very comfortable, albeit tight, but plenty of room for you and your stuff. There is a huge closet with room for all of your clothing. The AC in the bedroom is strong and cold, and kept the room quite cold (sometimes too cold!). The bathroom is plenty big, my only complaint is there is not enough shelf space (i.e. for a change of clothes). It is located a short drive from Chapel Hill, Durham, and Raleigh (we never drove longer then an hour to any one city in the Triangle). I will say this - it is a working farm, and that comes with the dirt, the smells, the life of a farm - it is NOT a fancy resort, if that's what you're looking for..but it IS worth every penny!
If you stay here, make the short drive to the Kraken bar one night for some live music, good local brews, and meet some local people.
Overall, I would not hesitate to use the farm again in the future!
Host were great ........place was clean ..wouldn’t want to try and find the driveway in the dark the first time
You're right, Laura, we're only a ten minute drive to town but our working farm is another world tucked away behind the trees.
Thank goodness for cell phones and Mapquest!
Thank you for staying with us, and we'd love to welcome you again!
