Great quiet spot for a picnic. Plenty of space for kids to roam. They'll love the goats. Main highlight of this park is the story of farming in North Carolina. I learned a lot about the evolution of our country and state in the history...More

The grounds are well maintained, there are markers around that explain and identify the various buildings on the farm. There is also a small visitors center that give lessons to school age children on the environment and history of NC.

We love this park! So much history to see, gardens, farm animals, adventure backpacks, and an area for children to play. They even have some eggs and veggies set out to take a sample of. I would definitely recommend!!
