Whether you want to learn more about the area or you simply want to enjoy the quiet of country living, we welcome you to visit our farm soon.


“We had a true farmer and chef weekend experience! Our eating tour of Kinston, NC was greatly enhanced by staying on the farm. The carriage house was comfortable and spacious. Mary Betty sat with us on the inn's porch telling stories about the region. We walked around the farm, visited with the pigs. Enjoyed the quiet. And the country breakfast was a real treat!” – Carrie B.

“Amazing place full of history!! Food is fabulous and Mary Betty and Ossie are exceptional hosts.” – Maria S.
