Get to know us
Thicketty Mountain Farms, LLC is a small, diverse, family farm owned and operated by Brent Belue and Sallie Hambright-Belue. We currently offer free-range eggs, pastured chickens, grass-fed beef, and sustainably grown vegetables. In the next year, we will offer pastured pork. We are committed to producing fresh, local, healthy, and sustainable food for your family and ours. You can purchase our products directly off the farm or at several Upstate farmer’s markets, the Hub City Market in Spartanburg and the TD Saturday Market in Greenville.
The farm got its name because Thicketty Mountain is what they each looked at from their front porches – Brent’s porch in Cowpens, SC and Sallie’s porch in Gaffney, SC – that is until they got married in August 2011. They now, both, look at Thicketty Mountain from Cowpens, SC.
Sallie and Brent are from farming families. Sallie’s grandfather, Charles Copeland, operated Old Post Road Farm in Gaffney which was SC Farm Family of the year in the 1970’s. Her other grandfather, Joe Hambright, and dad, Mike Hambright, ran a small farm in the Antioch community just outside Blacksburg. Brent’s family is also grounded in agriculture. His family ran Cash farms in Cowpens, and Brent worked in the peach shed for thirteen years. His father, Mike Belue, was a farmer for several years in Cowpens. Sallie and Brent are trying to carry on the agriculture tradition that is deeply rooted in their family history.
