2020: A Thanksgiving Like No Other

2020 may go down in the history books as one of the most challenging years of all time, but November would not be November, Thanksgiving would not be Thanksgiving, without friends and family coming together – whether in person, at a distance or via video call – to enjoy the most celebrated and sentimental holiday in our nation.

Farm News 2020: A Thanksgiving Like No OtherPiedmont Restaurants Welcoming Guests for Thanksgiving Dinner

From four-star restaurants to more casual diners, there are plenty of places to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal here in the Triangle, even during these challenging times of face masks and social distancing. Some dining establishments that are normally open on Thanksgiving simply will not open their doors this year, but many restaurants will continue the tradition of offering Thanksgiving lunch and/or dinner options, although for all, seating and hours will likely be limited. Most will also offer take-out meals in addition to, or even rather than, traditional seated dining.

  • Many Triangle families enjoy a traditional, buffet-style Thanksgiving dinner each year at Angus Barn, which has evolved, in 2020, into a wonderful gourmet plated meal of roast turkey, ham and several delicious sides.

  • Pittsboro’s The Carolina Inn will serve Thanksgiving brunch either as a full-fledged, traditional sit-down meal or as ‘brunch-to-go’: roast turkey and ham, seven mouthwatering sides, and a choice of three gourmet pies. https://store.carolinainn.com/products/thanksgiving-brunch
  • Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in Raleigh, Durham, Greensboro and Cary will offer dine-in or take-home meals, with a Thanksgiving menu highlighted by turkey with sausage and sage stuffing, lobster bisque, creamed spinach, and pumpkin cheesecake.

Durham Equestrian Farm for Sale on Old Oxford Hwy

Legacy Equestrian Farm for Sale in Durham

AMAZING FAMILY EQUESTRIAN FARM WITH TWO HOMES AND 2 PONDS on 43.8 ACRES! INCOME PRODUCING PROPERTY!

Welcome to the Lyondale Farm in Durham North Carolina!

2810 Old Oxford Hwy DurhamThe Lyondale Farm, a well-known landmark in Durham was formed in 1943 and originally consisted of 650 acres and was part of the Cameron Plantation, which was a land grant from the King of England.  The plantation stretched from what is now Hillsborough to Raleigh with the original plantation home place located 3 miles to the north.

Previous owners and founders Sara and John Lyon, Sr. built a home on the farm in 1945 and began raising registered Hereford cattle for beef and breeding.

The current owner John, Jr. Lyon has many cherished memories from growing up on the farm. “The Hole”, a local swimming place at the Eno River where all the kids congregated and went swimming and fishing during the summer. “Living off the land”, raising vegetables, pigs, cows, and chickens, and horseback riding till sunset are some of his favorites. 

The cattle operation blossomed until the late 60’s until the Falls Lake project began. Due to the expansive land acquisition in the area, it reduced the farm to 44 acres.

With the reduction of land, the cattle operation ceased and was replaced with horse boarding which continued until John,Sr.’s death in 1978.  Sara and the farm manager Durham NC Horse Farm for Sale managed the business until Sara’s death in 2005. At that time John, Jr. returned to his homeplace and has managed the farm since along with his wife, Connie.

There are two homes that remain on the property and the one that fronts Old Oxford Highway is better known as the “Eno Cottage” and was built to house the farm manager and later the family. This home was a popular Air B&B and now a monthly rental. The main home by the ponds was moved to its present location after the land acquisition in the 60’s. Click here to see photos of the Eno Cottage.
