The weather was not cooperating, but this could be a fun place on a nice day. Different buildings around the farm offer up farming activities. They were making lye soap, and a woman was doing laundry with it. Interesting. Gift shop has jams, jellies and relishes. I do wish we had a warmer day.

I originally visited this farm museum one summer when we were vacationing at Myrtle Beach, SC. Since then, I've made several trips specifically to visit to this open air, living history, working farm museum.
It's located only 30 minutes from Myrtle Beach and is very easy to get to. Once there, you're welcomed by some genuine South Carolinians who are glad you've come to visit. You enter the site through their welcome center / gift shop. From there, you can take a free tour to see what life was like on a one-horse family farm from the early 1900's up through the 1950s. Depending on when you visit, you may see volunteers out in the fields plowing with a mule, or perhaps harvesting tobacco, or making cane syrup, or even processing hog meat. There are several specific events throughout the year that emphasize these different farm tasks, (and more!) so if you're looking for a particular activity, be sure to check out their web site to determine the best time for your visit. (My favorite time is when they make cane syrup in November.) But even if you don't go for one of their special events, it's worth it to just take a day trip from the beach, get away from the crowd, and enjoy some genuine Southern Hospitality.

What a delightful day! We watched the cutting up of a hog, the making of soap, trying out lard, sausage making, woodworking, plowing with mules, corn shelling, corn milling, cooking on a wood stove; a glimpse of life in the middle 1900's in this area of South Carolina. A great history lesson!

A visit to the farm is truly a trip back in time. Lots of old barns, the old church and even the old farm house, just as they were many years ago. On occasion they even have people working the farm making cane syrup, soap and all the daily chores of an old time farm. On the third weekend of each month they even have live music with guitars, violins, and banjos. Pls. Check their schedule before you go. Worth the visit.

The small farm is set up like it would have been in the 1900's. Yes, it was hot in July, but as part of being a Museum Member, it was "Pick your own watermelon" time.
