Where are the nearest groceries, theaters and shopping?
9 miles west of the Farm is LaGrange, which has a 12 screen theater, restaurants, and major grocery stores (Wal Mart, Kroger, etc.,) and a nice small town square. Greenville is about 8 miles away and has a grocery store, restaurant and wonderful art gallery shop all located off the square. Pine Mountain also has many shops and restaurants.
Are the grills gas grills or charcoal?
The grills are both gas and there is no need for charcoal.
Do the cabins have televisions?
No, the 3 Sisters Cabins do not have televisions, but the Garden Cottage does have a large flat screen TV with DVD player, Direct TV and a surround sound system.
Is there internet available at the farm?
We do have limited internet use at the farm, because there are no providers that provide full bandwidth. Therefore we have data plans for use with mini-towers. There is internet at the Garden Cottage but only for checking emails and basic web functions. There is not the capability for streaming video or music without incurring significant additional data charges. Parents should inform children of this fact and make certain they are not downloading movies or playing games online.
What is provided in the Cottage and Cabins?
Each cabin has sufficient linens and towels for 4 (four) guests including pool towels and the Garden Cottage has enough for 8 (eight) guests. Additionally we provide basic amenities such as bath soap, shampoo and conditioner in the bathrooms. The kitchen in the Garden Cottage is fully equipped for most common cooking needs (bowls, cooking items, utensils, etc.) and some basic staple items. The cabins have fewer items but do have microwaves, small refrigerators and sinks. The Garden Cottage has a large refrigerator and pantry area for your use.
Can we ride the horses?
We do not allow guests to ride the horses.
Can we fish in the ponds on-site?
Yes, you are welcome to fish in any of the 3 ponds on-site. We have ample large mouth bass, bream and catfish. You are welcome to keep all fish except the bass which we ask you to catch and release. Please bring your own rods and tackle as we do not provide fishing gear.
Can we start a fire?
Yes, you can use the large stone fireplace at the pavilion for a bonfire, s’mores or just to gather around. No other open fires are permitted at the farm.
Can we bring guns and/or fireworks?
No guns of any type or any type of fireworks, including sparklers, are permitted at the farm.
Will our children be allowed to play with the goats, chickens, donkeys and other animals?
Depending upon the time of year and current status of the animals (pregnancy, illness) we do allow guests to pet and sometimes feed the animals under the supervision of the on-site farm manager. Occasionally, we can allow children to collect eggs and assist with the daily feeding of the animals if guests’ request.
Are there walking and biking trails?
Yes, we have miles of roads and trails which guests can access by walking or bikes. We do not encourage guests to drive their cars or trucks other than in the designated, gravel roads. The other trails and roads are not maintained for street cars and damage to your vehicle may occur.
