A beautiful farm full of history that you can read about on their website.

The open house will take place from 10 to 5 on both days and lots will be going on!  Refreshments will be served, crafts for the kids, musical productions will be performed at the pavillion (weather permitting), tons of Christmas gifts will be available for purchase at the gift shop.  Handmade/homemade furniture, baskets, jewelry, ornaments, pottery, soap and much more will be on display.

There will also be door prizes made available by the consignors and much more.  You don’t want to miss this great event!  You and your family will have a fabulous time and leave learning about this great poet and his love for the mountains and anything appalachian.  Kids will get educated and not even realize it as they will be having fun!
