An educational farm just minutes from UNC and the heart of Chapel Hill.

Our 17-acre farm is home to many animals, including chickens, sheep, goats, cows, ponies, donkeys, pigs, bunnies, alpacas, and llamas. We offer farm education, private events, tours, and more!

Our Farm

We created a free-range paradise for children where they can hang out with chickens, befriend a goat or two, pan for sparkling gemstones, get dirty in the gardens, fish for bass, and so much more!

Save Your Spot

"I recently held a small exercise session on the farm, which involved planting pumpkins. It was geared to seniors and it was amazing how some of my clients performed outside of the normal gym atmosphere, now they have no excuse when I get them back in the gym.

Bob Arrut

Personal Trainer

"I have watched animals on the  1870 Farm helping children and adults with social skills, and at the same time watching the animals improve their social skills with the help of visitors to the farm."

 Amanda McKee


"Each time we visit it we get something special from walking around, interacting with the animals and just watching others participate in all the wonderful programs you offer. You have been a blessing to the community and truly a place to disconnect."
