Where are we going today?

At Winterpast Farm is a fascinating place which has at points been a tobacco farm, a Christmas tree farm, and a horse farm, now welcomes families for a private tour experience.

Farmer Mary will meet you at the gate with food for the animals and you can feed and pet a llama, a pony, emu, goats, sheep, pigs and more. Somewhat wonderfully she runs the farm herself almost entirely so drop in visits are not accepted, make sure you arrange it with her in advance.

She can help you find eggs, spot nests, go for a hike and look for woodpeckers and turtles and lizards, climb on a motor boat and use your imagination, meet and hold baby chicks or bunnies depending on the season.

Also available is a large indoor room for winter story time which also includes swings and a climbing wall.
