Horne Creek Farm, Pinnacle NC

We visited this delightful historic farm last weekend, it's in Pinnacle North Carolina very close to Pilot Mountain and makes a great day trip from the Triad. The house was built in the late 1800's and it is now a museum show casing life on a farm in the 1900's this is a true gem of a place. 
It's surrounded by rolling hills and the house is beautifully kept up with volunteers dressed in period clothes. They also have a visitor center and special days in the fall corn shucking and apple picking is popular. They have a horticulture expert on staff who manages a heritage apple orchard. 
The kids got to help make apple pies and shuck corn, there were also period games in the yard and a few farm animals.

a barn the farm would have grown and dried a lot of tobacco which still remains a big crop in North Carolina (I personally hope it changes ha)

lovely lady frying apple pies, sadly due to health and safety we weren't allow to sample them

the kids loved shucking the corn and the wee man apparently wants a corn shucker as a toy ha
