About LL Urban Farms:
LL Urban Farms was formed by the friendship of two families, the Loys and the Langs. The friendship that sparked the business began 11 years ago when the Loy and Lang children met at Athens Drive High School. We will soon all be officially connected as our eldest children, Dustin and Taylor, are getting married later this year.
In early 2012 Jim and Debbie Loy and Glen and Barb Lang began brainstorming the idea of a small, urban sustainable farm that would focus on the year-round production of hydroponic lettuce. Their idea grew and the greenhouse went up on the newly purchased land on Holly Springs Road in Raleigh.
LL Urban Farms is a hydroponic farm and farm stand. We have now proven that you can produce bibb lettuce year round in North Carolina. Hydroponic production practices and a greenhouse made this possible. Also, youtube and friendly neighbors can go a long way for novice farmers.
