Join Wing Haven on a special guided, behind-the-scenes trip to North Corner Haven Farm, Griff Nursery and Kilburnie - The Inn at Craig Farm.
North Corner Haven
North Corner Haven is located on over 600 acres of rolling hills, pastures and ponds for guests to explore. Founded in 1972 by The Dooley Family, the North Corner Haven team is transforming the land to foster sustainable farming and permaculture principles in daily practice. Upon arrival, we will enjoy a welcome and overview of mission at The Farmhouse led by farm team Ross Lackey, Tiffany Lackey, and Catherine Dooley.
Ross Lackey will provide a guided tour of the farmhouse and surrounding gardens, hilltop farming operations, and market gardens. Guests will be treated to a forage walk, strolling the forest, identifying local edible flora and fauna, and harvesting some edibles for lunch. Included will be an introduction to mushroom logs and other foraging techniques.
Farm Buffet Lunch
After our farm tour, guests will enjoy a simple seated lunch, a true farm-to-table experience, on the farmhouse porch prepared by Tiffany Lackey. Check out North Corner Farm on Instagram HERE!
Next stop, explore the great variety of annuals, perennials, succulents, vegetables, herbs and hanging baskets at Griff's Nursery. Fall is a great time to plant. We will allow plenty of time for shopping.
Kilburnie - The Inn at Craig Farm
Last but not least, we will be hosted for a guided tour by the Kilburnie manager of the scenic, rural landscape and properties that are "steeped in centuries-old tradition and gracious style" writes Southern Living Magazine. The fields and woods surrounding historic Craig House are all part of pre-Civil War Craig Farm, which included more than a thousand acres.
Cost is $125/member and $150/non-member. Membership information.
Price Includes: Bus service to and from Park Road Shopping Center (near Harris Teeter) and Seated Farm Luncheon at North Corner Haven.
Dress for exploration on wooded paths. Rain or shine.
