Turtle Mist Farm is a small farm using sustainable farming principles to produce a variety of vegetables, pasture raised laying & meat chickens, turkeys, ducks, sheep, beef cattle and heritage pigs. Feel your stresses slip away as you turn onto the gravel driveway towards the secluded farm located 30 minutes from Raleigh, NC,
Our goal for the property is to share our love of nature with others and to teach children where eggs and steak really come from. Here on the farm, we’ve chosen to raise heritage breeds. Currently we have hair sheep, (Dorper, St. Croix, and Kathadin crosses); Amerucana and Black Copper Maran chickens which lay green, pink, tan and dark brown eggs; Gelbveih beef cattle, Muscovy ducks Bourbon Red turkeys, Toulouse geese, Quail; Berkshire hogs. We also have Maximillian, our Belgian, draft horse. We strive to raise all of our animals in a humane manner.
A stay at Turtle Mist Farm will provide guests a wonderfully relaxing get-away to the country. Enjoy the privacy of the 3 bedroom, 2 bath guesthouse with eat-in kitchen. Guests are welcome, and also encouraged, to accompany and/or assist the owners with the daily farm maintenance. Alternatively, relax in rocking chairs on the front porch overlooking one of the two stocked ponds, the vegetable garden, and the pastures. Bring your fishing poles or borrow one of ours. You can fish from the pier or our paddleboat.
