How to get to the farm

The farm is located near 4809 Friends School Rd, directly across from Carolina Friends School in the Duke Forest.

Coming from Duke University, take 751 to the roundabout and turn down Old Erwin Rd towards Chapel Hill. Turn right at Mt. Sinai and take another right onto Friends School Road. Just across from the Carolina Friends School, take another right onto the driveway marked Duke Campus Farm visitor parking. Please park in the fenced gravel parking lot.

If you are using GPS to get to the farm, enter “4809 Friends School Road,” then take the gravel drive, marked “Duke Campus Farm Visitor Parking,” to the fenced gravel lot directly across the street.

If you are arriving via Uber or private vehicle, please park/get dropped off in our gravel visitors lot.
