Fodor's Review

Take a tour of what was once the first major peanut farm in North Carolina, the 1850 Greek Revival manor house, and its outbuildings, 9 miles northeast of downtown. Watch a blacksmith at work, see weaving, and basket-making demonstrations, and learn about Gullah Geechee heritage. You can also become familiar with farm animals (goats, sheep, horses, geese, and chickens). On Wednesdays, from 8 to 1, April through December, local farmers, growers, and artisans sell their produce, plants, and crafts. The site adjoins the 67-acre Abbey Nature Preserve, where birding and hiking are offered. Check the schedule for special events like farm-to-table dinners, outdoor concerts, and children's events. Hourly tours are on the half-hour Monday to Saturday and on the hour Sunday.
