Cases + Tysingers | Chapel Hill, NC
We met Walt and Debbie Tysinger while working on a master plan for the Sarah + Bailey Williamson Preserve at Walnut Hill, a property of Triangle Land Conservancy (TLC). At the time, Walt was land manager for TLC’s 6,000+ acres and he and Debbie were the live-in caretakers at the conservancy’s Irvin Farm. Looking to transition to regenerative farming full-time, Walt and Debbie saw an opportunity to collaborate with their friends Suzanne and Matt Case of Clear Wind Farm, a therapeutic horse farm in Chapel Hill. Together, a synergistic group of goals emerged, built around holistic land management, community resilience, and meaningful work.
Walt’s vision for a diverse farmstead included an intensive 2-acre market garden, native plant nursery, forest garden trial area, berries and small fruit, and broadscale alley cropping and silvopasture. We loved helping Walt with the first steps of such a wonderful endeavor and are eager to see how the farm grows and develops.
