Horne Creek Farm

Farm Life – Agriculture

Once the Hauser family farm, Horne Creek enables visitors to experience farm life in North Carolina's northwestern Piedmont circa 1900. The site features the family's original farm house, a tobacco curing barn, a corn crib, adjacent fields under cultivation, and even a heritage apple orchard. Through programs ranging from old fashioned ice cream socials to an annual corn shucking frolic, Horne Creek Living Historical Farm provides a unique opportunity to learn about our rural past.

    Fairy Tales and Houses

    Saturday, 10 am - 1 pm
    Our very first Fairy Tale & Houses program went so well, we're having another one! Bring your child out to Horne Creek Farm to listen to some of the 1900 era's most beloved fairy tales; then, each child's imagination can take wing as they make their very own fairy house to take home with them. Fee for the class is $26.85 (Includes sales tax). Fee includes basic items to make the fairy house, readings of several fairy tales, and a snack for all participants. Class size is limited to 36 (children or adults). But, there's more! To treat your fairy to an extremely comfy and deluxe house, we'll have lots of beautiful add-ons which will be available for purchase. There will also be a few surprises. So, call 336-325-2298 to find out what they are and to make your reservation.
