Piedmont Restaurant

Piedmont Restaurant has cultivated a loyal following by creating an adventurous, seasonal dining experience in the heart of downtown Durham. Executive Chef Greg Gettles shines a light on foods harvested and raised in North Carolina, including from our sister company in Hillsborough, Coon Rock Farm. Chef Gettles’ inspired cuisine showcases local ingredients in classic dishes that are reimagined with an inventive spirit. The resulting menus are unique, comforting, and deeply flavorful. A thoughtful selection of North Carolina craft beer complements a regionally focused craft cocktail program. General Manager and Wine Director Crawford Leavoy curates an extensive and award winning wine list that completes the modern farm-to-table experience.

Coon Rock Farm

Richard Holcomb began Coon Rock Farm in 2005 as a sustainable family farm providing garden crops and pasture-raised antibiotic and hormone-free chickens, eggs, pigs, sheep and goats. The farm’s 55 acres is nestled along a bend in the Eno River just outside Hillsborough, NC. The farm concentrates on “sustainably taking care of the land while letting it take care of us.” The soil is fertilized by the animals through intense rotational grazing, cover cropping, and composting. No chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides are used. Already a fixture in local kitchens, Coon Rock Farm produce, meat and eggs are known throughout the Triangle thanks to its’ participation in many area farmers markets and Community Supported Agriculture programs. It also provides sister companies - Piedmont, Bella Bean Organics and Heirloom Provisions - with meats, eggs and produce.
