Visit these Clover area locations for the York County Ag + Art Tour June 9th & 10th!!
Only open Saturday, June 9

A small working farm with beef cattle being our main income along with raising free range chickens eggs, hay and pumpkins. Three years ago, we began farm agritourism.  During 6 weeks in the fall, we opened our farm to schools and do educational farm tours which includes 5 educational stations. We also raise alpacas and use their fiber to make yarn and clothing items.  We have a lesson for our farm tours we call "From Fleece to Fiber" in which we demonstrate how we make yarn including the use of spinning wheels and looms.  We also would like to show case our Wood Miser sawmill.  All buildings on the farm, (with the exception of the original red barn and the old milking parlor) have been built by Doc using wood from the farm and the Wood Miser sawmill.
