Water Oaks Farm is the name we’ve given our house and small farm in southern Durham County, North Carolina. Its a 4 acre place with 2 large pasture areas, a fishing pond, donkey barn, a chicken house and a smoke house. We hope to raise  heritage breed miniature donkeys, ducks, chickens, maybe turkeys and after awhile some small cattle breeds like Irish Dexters. There is also the hope of growing much more of our own food on the land. All of this when we’re not fishing though.

  1. Hi there, we are interested in purchasing some chickens but are unable to locate your address or phone # on your website. Would you mind sharing with us?

    Also, what are your hours?

    Thanks so much,

  2. Hello,
    My name is Sat Ardas. I am interested in some part-time work at your farm this Spring and Summer. I have lots of work experience with a variety of jobs, including handyman skills (painting, carpentry, etc.), farming, gardening, landscaping, some work with animals, and a moderate level of Spanish fluency. I am also strong and fit, possess excellent endurance, and heat does not bother me. If you have need for an experienced pair of hands, i would love to hear from you. I can provide a resume and references if you would like.
    Thank you very much, and I look forward to hearing from you.
    Sat Ardas
