Check out the links:

Beartrack Farm Originally, Beartrack Farm was nothing except field and trees—not even a barn, a fence, or a house to speak of. Farmer Sharon put in a greenhouse, a horse barn, three grain bins, and started a garden. Farm visits welcome, including shopping at The Little Kitchen, Sharon’s bake shop featuring products made from ingredients found on her farm.

Drive the Barn Quilt Trail pick up a map and visit the creative and unique barn quilts scattered all over Sampson County!
