North Carolina Bird Friendly Bed and Breakfast

We are thrilled to have been chosen as a Birder Friendly Business associated with the North Carolina Birding Trail.

We actively participate in the Birder program supported by Audubon North Carolina, NC Wildlife Resources Commission, NC Sea Grant, North Carolina Cooperative Extension and US Fish and Wildlife Service.

There are nine designated birding site trails in Martin County, all near Big Mill.

We have a vast diversity of birds here on the farm, both migratory and some who winter here. Our eco friendly practices entice many birds. We have a healthy food supply and birds love our organic pecans, sunflowers, pears, and especially the blueberries.

Northeastern North Carolina also has an abundance of migratory waterfowl. For birders who want to see the Tundra Swans, Lake Mattamuskeet and the Pocosin Lakes are an easy drive.

Bird watching is fascinating and we are anxious to learn from our Birding Guests. With our abundant food sources, our lakes and the diversity of habitat of fields and barns we offer safe haven to migratory birds and all birds that choose to visit or make Big Mill their home.
