Greenlands Farm was established in 2001 and has been in operation for the community since 2010 with a farm store, CSA program (vegetable subscriptions for the community), farm to table events, classes & workshops, an on-site nonprofit educational farm animal sanctuary (www.hoofnc.org) and more.
Our goal has always been to be a source of healthy food, education, and a gathering place for our community and travelers that visit our rural area of North Carolina. We have practiced a sustainable lifestyle since the early 1980’s and our roots are integrated into this farm. We opened our farm to the public to give our community a chance to learn, grow, and take part in a slowly diminishing way of life. We want people to connect to their food, the earth, and each other. Operating on our farmland is an educational farm animal sanctuary (Helpers Of Our Farm, HOOF) where we teach about rescued farm animals, animal science, kindness, rehabilitation…all in hopes of creating a society that is more aware of each other and the connections they can make with animals. Kindness can be infectious and we hope through our programs, HOOF can create a better place for all.
Greenlands Farm will the venue for a folk and Americana music festival, Half Hell Folk Music Festival, with a “tap take-over” by Waterline Brewing Co., on June 3, 2017. Brunswick County and surrounding businesses are coming together to bring this event to the community in benefit of Helpers Of Our Farm.
Leave your pets, drinks, and food at home but bring a chair and enjoy great music, great beer and wine, and great food at Greenlands Farm! Car pool if possible to leave ample space for other friends to enjoy the day with you and us, parking is located next to the farm store.

WATERLINE BREWING CO. - TAP TAKEOVER
Waterline Brewing Co. is doing a "Tap Takeover" at Greenlands Farm! Come enjoy great beers from Waterline Brewing Co., brewed under the bridge in Wilmington, NC!
Beers On Tap:
- Kölsch. A smooth and crisp, delicately balanced beer German-style beer with its origins in Cologne, Germany, our Waterline Kölsch has a subdued maltiness at first taste but finish with a pleasantly refreshing, citrusy tang rounded out by the lightest touch of hops for some flavor without bitterness. Coolly refreshing on a hot North Carolina afternoon.
- India Pale Ale. Brewed to survive the voyage from England to India in the 1800s, India Pale Ales, or IPAs, have been and still are one of the the most popular style beers in the American craft brewing revolution. Our Waterline IPA is a step back from the crazy bright West Coast style with a beautiful clear copper color, moderate hops aroma and of course as all "hop-heads" want a big hoppy flavor and bitterness.
- Oatmeal Stout.Rounding out the color spectrum, our Waterline Stout will be an oatmeal variety that you’ll immediately enjoy. It has a light sweetness that you wouldn’t expect in such a dark beer. You’ll find it served up with a thick tan-colored head and as you drink we think you’ll find hints of chocolate and coffee and cream imparted by our special mix of oats and the dark roasted grains.
You may also catch some other great brews from Waterline Brewing Co. at the Half Hell Folk Festival!
Why do we need a benefit concert? Did you know that Greenlands Farm is a bona fide NC farm and Helpers Of Our Farm is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation? We depend on volunteers, donations, and support from our community to continue operating all facets of this farm. Helpers Of Our Farm is a nonprofit organization centered around education and providing a sanctuary for rescued, donated, and in-need farm animals. HOOF provides a unique and powerful educational and emotional connection between visitors and our farm animals. In order to care for the animals of HOOF, continue HOOF's programs, education, classes, events...EVERYTHING...to continue we need events like this to keep it all going.
The PETTING FARM will be open during most of the festival for you to meet the animals you are supporting!
We'll be holding a raffle fundraiser from some great local companies who have donated items to aid Helpers Of Our Farm!
FOLK FESTIVAL LINEUP
MOORE BROTHERS BAND, from Hickory, NC
Soulful, improvisational, music that is alive have been used to try to describe the Moore Brothers Band. Jacob’s lead vocals and Isaac’s brother harmonies weaves a musical tapestry that welcomes influences from many genres. Jacob, the entertainer of the group, plays keys, guitar, organ, mandolin and banjo. Isaac amazes people with his guitar shredding skills and in the moment abilities. Their fiery stage energy and lyrics to their original material keeps the audience wanting moore. Some say the next big Americana band to hit the country, others say the next generation’s jam band, and some say soulful blues and rock- we will let you decide.
LOWLAND HUM, from Charlottesville, VA
Daniel and Lauren invite their listeners to share in an intimate and vulnerable space they have created together. In the live setting, the duo offers an immersive experience of thoughtful songcraft interspersed with audience Q&A and extemporaneous songs about the day's happenings. Their recordings take listeners on a journey through relatable, imagistic poetry exploring themes of memory, longing, confession and identity, and drawing attention to the often unnoticed resonance of the everyday.
Based in Charlottesville, Virginia, Lowland Hum is husband/wife team Daniel and Lauren Goans. Together they are a prolific, two-person creative factory. They write, arrange and produce all of their own music, and have honed a cohesive visual arts aesthetic to match the hushed simplicity of their sound.
MICHAEL RENO HARRELL, from Morganton, NC
Michael Reno Harrell is an award winning songwriter, as well as a veteran storyteller and entertainer, and he’s from the South… the Southern Appalachian Mountains to hone it a bit finer.
One could compare Michael's performances to his granddaddy's pocket knife: well warn and familiar feeling, but razor sharp and with a point. Michael's recordings top the Americana Music Association charts year after year. His original songs and stories have been described as “Appalachian grit and wit” but, as his writing shows, Michael’s awareness is much broader than the bounds of his boyhood home or even the Southern Experience. Having toured throughout the British Isles and much of Europe, as well as most of the US, the songs he writes and the stories he creates reflect an insight into people’s experiences that catch the ear like an old friend's voice.
CHARLES WALKER, from Boone, NC
Boone, NC-based songwriter Charles Walker, 19, blends traditional folk songwriting with rock and electronic elements. Walker has been involved in charity work throughout his career. He regularly collaborated with The Kilah Davenport Foundation prior to the passing of Kilah’s Law in 2014. From 2013-2015, he hosted an annual winter charity concert benefitting the Crisis Assistance Ministry. He also collaborates with the Charlotte, NC chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, performing at their annual Rockin’ for the Cure fundraiser each year since 2014. A full-length article on Walker was published in the Charlotte Observer in February 2016. Later that year, he won the Monroe Voice talent competition in Monroe, NC.
PLENTY PASTURES, from Wilmington, NC
Plenty Pastures was formed in the Cape Fear region of North Carolina of soil, surf and sun; of storms, the heavy rains and wind, bellows of thunder and lightning flashes; of the river that divides the land and empties into the sea, the fresh water mingling with the salt, inevitably becoming the waves that spill themselves upon the sandy shore, renewing the Earth.
HONEY MAGPIE, from Durham, NC
Honey Magpie is a four-piece indie-folk band from the Durham, NC area. Their sound is both traditional and modern, blending old-time string instruments and three-part harmonies with pop, rock, and indie influences.
They began playing together as a band when Rachael Hurwitz (vocals, guitar, keyboard) moved to North Carolina in 2014. She recruited Pippa Hoover (cello, vocals) to fill out her original songs about life, love, and travel.

1. Current driver’s license from North Carolina or other states. Currently, when drivers renew their driver’s license in our state, the NC Division of Motor Vehicles provides a paper 20 day driving certificate and then mails the permanent photo ID/driver’s license to the driver. Drivers are allowed to keep their old license until the renewed license is mailed to them. The temporary, 20 day paper license is considered a valid driver’s license, but the customer should also show their expired license along with the paper certificate when asked for identification.
2. U.S. Military Identification. These identifications are green and white with a photograph of the individual and physical description.
3. North Carolina Identification Card. An official State of North Carolina Special Identification (ID) card that has a photograph issued to a person who does not drive. Identification cards from other states are not accepted.
4. Official passport issued by any nation. Passports may be in the booklet or card form. Official forms of identification include a photograph, date of birth and written or electronic signature.
