My two youngest children (ages 15 and 8) came to NC for their school fall break. Found this farm online to visit while here. It was a great time! We all 3 enjoyed it very much. Our guide, Eva, was so very sweet and knowledgeable. She seemed to adore her role as well as all the animals! Highly recommend this farm. Scenery was absolutely breathtaking with the mountains all around.

Fun, out of the ordinary thing to do. Nice, twisty drive up but WELL worth it. Farm was beautiful and clean. Tour guide was pleasant and knowledgeable and animals were well kept. Nice store with a good yarn selection. Happy we took the grands, they are still talking about it 3 days later.

Mainly for children

This tour is geared towards school age children. We were 2 adults in our group. The talks at each animal station was quite lengthy and the children that were in our group lost attention rather fast as well as adults. Our guide was well informed though. The setting is lovely and it helped that it was perfect fall weather. Price is fair though.

The entire tour was such great fun. Our tour guide was fabulous, I'm just horrible with names and can't remember hers. A great farm, a fun afternoon, and really great quality yarn too.

Great experience!

A bit of a drive, but weather was perfect and it was great to see the fall colors. First time I have ever seen apple trees. They don't do anything with apples, just have some apple trees on their property. The last bit of the drive is only wide enough for one car. Informative, liked seeing the animals. The alpacas, llamas and goats were friendly. Our son liked their pet dogs too, they roamed around and liked the attention. Loved the angora goats. Great tour. Bought some alpaca yarn, alpaca socks and her cookbook. Recommend! Especially liked that booking the tour was super easy, liked that the confirmation email said that we're on their manifest and we just need to show up.

Fiber farm tour

What a fun time my husband and I had. It was interesting touring a fiber farm and am sure we will visit again the next time we are in Banner Elk. Looking forward to crocheting with the yarn I purchased.
