We are located in Bunn, about 30 minutes east of Raleigh. Driving away from Bunn on 98 East, pass Vollmer Farm on your left, then turn left onto Sledge Rd after a half mile.  At that point you'll start seeing our signs.

Best way of locating us.

Use Google Maps or Apple Maps on a smart phone and search "Tar River Life". You should easily find us this way.
