Renfrow’s Hardware and Clemson Student Farm

Last weekend the Campus Farmers’ Market club went on an exciting field trip to Matthews, NC and Clemson, SC to visit former market manager Pressly Blackley and the Clemson Student Farm.

Renfrow Store

Renfrow Hardware, a family-owned hardware store in Matthews, NC, carries an assortment of goods including seeds, garden tools and other general merchandise.

Pressly, a December NCSU graduate in mechanical engineering, is now working at her family’s own Renfrow Hardware in Matthews. The store has unique products and a special story that you can read about here.  When she’s not working at the store, there’s a good chance you can find Pressly a few blocks up the street where she has begun to establish an urban farm that she will be using to produce vegetable and greenhouse starts for the sale at the store.


Market co-manager Hannah Frank works on filling a raised bed behind Renfrow Hardware. The beds will be used as a demonstration area for customers to learn about how to build and manage raised beds at their own homes.

After a great night in Matthews, we left for Clemson, where we met Shawn Jadrnicek for a tour of the Clemson Organic Student Farm as well as his own home permaculture model. The visit was an inspiring glimpse into what might be possible for the Campus Farmers’ Market and agroecology program at NCSU.

Black Soldier Fly Larvae & Tomorrow’s Market

What are your thoughts on poop? How about food waste? Protein?

Black soldier fly larvae can be a fascinating combination of all of the above. Used to as a means of processing all manner of organic matter, these organisms can serve as a great source of protein to chickens or other grub-eating folk.


Come check out the Campus Farmers’ Market table in the brickyard tomorrow to learn more! While you’re there, you can pick up your favorite produce, cookies, NumNum Sauce or handcrafted gifts!
