Agritourism farm featuring farm animals that you can care for. Overnight summer camps, retreats for kids and adults, family friendly events and glamping featuring fishing and outdoor fun! We are part of the Kids Farms Family and our animals are part of our family.

What happens when you take an absolutely beautiful farm property, and add very friendly animals, mix it up with some rescue animals-including a camel and horses, utilize reclaimed wood dating back to the 1700's for outbuildings and even recreate a mining area that has recently unearthed artifacts and fossils? You get a bespoke outdoor experience to unwind, wander and entertain almost anyone in your family. The property is set on over 100 acres with one of the largest spring fed ponds in the area, loaded with trophy sized largemouth bass and catfish.

The 1870 Farm Family of Chapel Hill, alongside the Kids Farms Foundation, sought to save this property from development. This oasis is now an outdoor farm-based learning environment for children, a sanctuary for rescue animals and the perfect space for you and your family to get away and unplug right in the heart of Chatham County.

Visitor experiences at the farm include hands on time with our farm animals, fishing, kayaking, hayrides, mining for gems, treasure hunting at the creek and so much more!

Our large open spaces, open air barn and beautifully decorated barn house will make your wedding or special event all the more beautiful.

For the kids, we offer birthday party packages, overnight retreats, day camps and summer camps.

Our glamping and overnight stays offer a serene, relaxing environment to break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Seasonal events such as our Easter Egg Hunt, Oktoberfest and Winter Festival will bring families from all over the Triangle together for some good old fashioned farm fun!
