F is for Faucette Farm!

It is no secret, Maxie B's is known in the Triad for our Fresh Strawberry Buttercream Cake! 

We sell an insane amount of slices of this cake in the bakery and that would not be possible without a large supply of fresh strawberries for us to wash, slice and fill cakes with each day.  When strawberries are in season here in NC (soon!!!) we have our certified organic strawberries brought in a couple of times a week right off of the fields of 
Faucette Farm in Brown Summit.  


Tyler Faucette loads up his truck, heads on over to see us and unloads them right into our cooler.  They don't hang around the shop very long at all, because we stuff lots of fresh sliced strawberries between three layers of Cream Cheese Poundcake....ice it in our homemade Buttercream icing and we are good to go!  If you have not had a slice of our Fresh Strawberry Buttercream cake....you have to drop what you are doing and come to the shop IMMEDIATELY!   Along with our Strawberry Buttercream, we are also featuring our Strawberry Shortcake which is filled with the same berries......but topped with a light, homemade whipped cream!  DELISH~

You can visit Faucette Farm at 7566 Friendship Church Rd, Brown Summit, NC 27214.  They are open M-F from 8a to 6p and on Saturdays from 8a to 3p.  They also have tables setup at the Greensboro Downtown Curb Market on Saturdays.   

Faucette Farm has been growing certified organic vegetables along with their strawberries for about 4 years now.  Veggies include collards, sweet potatoes, beans, potatoes, corn, cucumbers, squash, lettuce, okra, watermelon, cantaloupes, herbs and more.  They recently added some heritage breed turkeys and will have those available come Fall.
