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.
As of 2020, Duke has discontinued supporting sponsored rideshares to the Campus Farm. We hope to resume this program -- which many students have used in years past to receive fully-subsidized rides to and from the farm -- as soon as possible. We regret we are unable to coordinate or sponsor transportation at this time.
Our parking lot is located across the street from the Carolina Friends School. Please DO NOT drive down Narrow Ln for any reason; this is our neighbors’ private street and we want to respect their privacy! If you need to turn around, please do so at the Friends School or our parking lot. We will greet your group at the big entrance gate by the parking lot!
