Rabbit’s Radish Farm is located on 10 acres and nurtured by Ben and Marianne Carter-Maschal. We are a small biodiverse farm nested in the countryside of Chatham County, NC, just outside of Siler City and Silk Hope, 15 minutes from Pittsboro, 35 minutes from Chapel Hill, and 45 minutes from Raleigh.
In addition to being farmers, Ben and Marianne are also both artistans.
Ben Maschal is a full time professional luthier who has spent the past 10+ years handcrafting acoustic steel string guitars and more recently, fine ukuleles. In addition, he is a fine craftsman of every sort, including cabinetry, furniture building, drafting, and inventing buildings and tools for the farm.

Marianne Carter-Maschal is a freelance illustrator and graphic designer. She specializes in graphics that have a fun, quirky, retro appeal, often things farm or nature related. Her graphics and illustrations are featured in many museums across North Carolina, including Marbles Kid’s Museum in Raleigh, The Burwell School in Hillsborough, and the Roanoke Cashie River Center in Windsor.
In addition, she is also an artist of all things fiber and cloth related, and comes from a long line of southern ladies who taught her how to sew, knit and crochet as a child. She is a fabric enthusiast, avid knitter, and passionate yarn-spinner.
