About

Carrigan Farms is a 5th generation, family owned, farm. Carrigan Farms specializes in growing quality fruits and vegetables, educational school tours and field trips, weddings, swim parties, and other special events.

The Carrigans settled in the Mooresville area in the 1750’s with ancestors buried at local Coddle Creek ARP church. Scots-Irish immigrants, they are hard working, independent folks. Since 1902 the Carrigan family has been farming at their current location in Mooresville. Initially a tobacco and cotton farm, the previous generations transitioned to a Guernsey dairy and row crop operation. In 1975, when current owner Doug Carrigan graduated from NC State University with a horticulture degree, the fruit and vegetable farm was born. Quality fruits and vegetables are grown throughout the year with primary focus on crops such as asparagus, strawberries, apples and pumpkins. Additionally, the Carrigans host thousands of kids of all ages for hayrides to the pumpkin patch, educational field trips, and terrifying haunted evenings during the Halloween season.

Recent times have brought visitors to the farm wanting to experience the beauty of the open space. The Quarry at Carrigan Farms is the perfect private location for weddings, swim parties, company picnics, proms, formals and church gatherings.

Won’t you join us in experiencing all that Mother Nature has to offer by spending a fun time on the farm.
