The Plant is a diverse 17-acre eco-industrial park located on the east side of Pittsboro, North Carolina. They are the home to like-minded local economy focused small businesses. The Plant has turned local commerce into an experience with an art gallery, many outdoor spaces for gatherings and events, spirits, ciders, meads, beers, a coffee roaster and a farm-to-fork kitchen that grows her food on site. Hemp clothing and CBD products are also on site.
The property is the home of the Chatham Beverage District, and as such, home to Fair Game Beverage Company, Chatham Cider Works, and Starrlight Mead. Enjoy the smells of coffee from Vortex Roasters, and bmc brewing has embarked on a new brewery that is sure to light up the campus with even more choices. Activities include Chatham Axes (if you have aggression to release), Pittsboro Electric Bikes for rent or sale, a Petanque court (kind of like bocce ball) and a playground for little ones. Other tenants include Hempsmith Clothing Company, Oak City Hemp, Carolina Hemp Tours, Copeland Springs Farm & Kitchen, Smelt Art Gallery, Vita Mielie, and Abundance NC, a non profit focusing on community resilience (local food, sustainability, death literacy, mutual aid, and non-profit incubation).
The Plant is proud of their beautiful event grounds which have seen conferences, workshops, carnivals, fiestas, faires, art openings, birthdays, weddings, and funerals. In 2016, they added Pittsboro Farm and Forest Trail, a 3/4 mile walking trail open to the public. The bird life is vibrant, they are opening a tree museum soon, and they have an art walk as well. One thing is for sure, there is nothing static about this unique business park. Ever-tuned to the flow of life and local economy, The Plant is a community asset. Join them as tenants, for events, throwing an axe, tastings, or a stroll down the trail.
