In The Red Farm and Dairy features all things goat related. From goat cheese to goat meat, The Bingham family provides natural, family-raised products in the interior section of the NC Farmers Market.
In The Red Farm is owned and operated by the Bingham family—Nathan, Lisa, Jonathan, and Matthew—in Chinquapin, NC. They began raising and showing Alpine and Nubian dairy goats in 1999 as a hobby. The family soon after began making cheeses to share with family and friends. Eventually, the hobby became “too expensive,” says Nathan Bingham. In 2004 the Binghams decided to start a small dairy to “off set the hobby,” and to “produce a wholesome product that can be enjoyed by everyone.”
In The Red has a great variety of goat cheeses including roasted garlic, southwest chipotle, rosemary garlic, dill, peppercorn, blueberry, fig and honey, and afterburner. They also sell frozen goat meat, organic free-range eggs, and cheesecakes. (I use the goat meat in a curry stew and it is fantastic).
Recently, the Binghams have starting selling homemade frozen goat milk custard.
All members of the family have a hand in the farm work. Nathan makes the cheese, Lisa cares for and milks the goats, and Jonathan and Matthew feed and care for all the animals. All of In the Red’s products go from “raw to finished on the farm,” says Bingham. “We take great pride in our goats and strive to keep them happy and healthy. We learned a long time ago that the quality of our cheese depends on the quality of our goats.” The family even provides after dinner “lounging areas” for their goats.
All of the cheeses are made fresh each week and new flavors are introduced seasonally and during holiday seasons.
In addition to selling their own products, In The Red maintains a partnership with Chalet Bakers. Their natural breads are available at the In The Red Farm stand.
In The Red Farm is located in the interior section of the NC Farmers Market right next to the Rainbow Meadow Farms stand. If you’d like to learn more about the Bingham’s farm or goats in general, Nathan has some photos at his booth and is receptive to questions. They always have samples of their goat cheese flavors set out, so give them a taste test to discover your favorites.
