Here on the farm we have been Earth Friendly for generations. We have been honored with the top award from NC Green Travel and Trip Advisor’s Green Leaders program.
We hope you will help us by recycling while you are here – We can do aluminum cans, metal cans, plastic and cardboard. If you will put this under the sink we will gather it up. (We have a friend who makes some extra money recycling metal, so we give this to him)
