Prince Bay Farm
An experimental and educational farm, we are working to bring a high level of self-sufficiency here and to share our knowledge with our visitors. We also offer farmstay/English immersion vacation packages so folks can spend their holiday relaxing on a peaceful farm while improving their language skills. We are the stewards of one of the many Carolina Bays that pepper the East Coast, a unique ecosystem, which contains rare carnivorous plants.
This is the farm’s 11th year hosting visitors. Forty-nine countries represented and over 450 folks volunteering, all have helped make the farm a better place. They have laughed, learned, sweated, grown and eaten some great food. We hope all that those who spend time here will take something positive away with them. Looking forward to another year of great helpers & guests!!!
Our family has been in the Carolina low-country since the 1670s, and here on this property since 1827. The farm and family have seen many changes throughout the centuries, and is looking to the future!!! My friends call me 'nikipedia' for the vast wealth of knowledge I love to share. I am a scholar of history and a myriad of other topics. I have extensive knowledge of my home region and love to share its wonders. I enjoy hosting international volunteers and helping people improve their English skills. Guests will learn about organic, sustainable farming methods & self-sufficiency, as well as anything else that they care to inquire about. My library is extensive with thousands of books available to guests. The farm acts as an English language immersion experience as well. We are the stewards of one of the many Carolina Bays that pepper the East Coast, which are truly unique ecosystems, & which contain rare carnivorous plants plus many other special species. Many miles of walking trails allow our guests to experience this ecosystem in a close & personal manner. While here, please respect the varied flora & fauna on the property by taking photos only, and not disturbing any sensitive habitats on the farm. Our helpers are treated as if they are a part of our family.
