We are a small family farm with a Grade A Raw Goat Milk Dairy and Creamery on site. We produce raw milk and soft fresh farmstead cheeses for sale here on the farm, at several farmers markets and at retail outlets around the Upstate of South Carolina. Dairy goats are our primary livestock focus with chicken and ducks secondary. There are many other kinds of animals here as well, including our rare breed Draft horses. We are not an organic farm, but we do try to follow those practices as closely as possible.

You can expect to learn...

Animal husbandry including but not limited to handling, feeding, health care, birthing and breeding.

In the dairy you will learn about goat milk, milking and how to handle that milk once it leaves the animal, cleaning, packaging and transport of the final products. When we are making cheese you will have the chance to observe the process…and tasting for sure!

We make a variety of soaps, lotions and bath products and can give instruction in these if desired.

We do quite a bit of gardening primarily in the Spring and Summer. You may be able to assist in planting, maintaining and harvesting (and eating!) what we grow.

We have a sawmill on the property and mill our own lumber for structures here on the farm. There is a complete wood working shop where something is generally always in progress!

Accommodations are provided in the form of a 30 ft, two bedroom camper here on the property. The property is gated and secure with guard dogs on patrol at night.

For meals we consume things from right here on the farm or sourced from other local growers.

Unfortunately we cannot accommodate children under 18 or pets.
