We had the chance to visit the Island Farm on Roanoke Island in the Outer Banks back in July. Maybe it is odd this post is going up at they are getting nailed with a hurricane but I hope the farm fares well with the weather hitting them!
When we got to the farm, one of the first things everyone saw was the swing. The swing was a rope with a bag on it. Simple, huh? Well look at everyone having fun!!
Next we saw the chickens … Grace was willing to feed chickens. Sophie not so much. She did LOVE getting the eggs from the chicken coop though. This makes me think we may just end up in chickens in our backyard one day. I need to add learning about chicken care to my to-do list!
The farm also has time period games for the children and those that think they are children, like Brian. PLUS they have a hayride with the Ox. Now where else can you have a hayride with an Ox?!
Now if you have been around here for awhile you know Brian loves history … maybe that was part of becoming a Social Studies teacher?! He really loved how hands the historic house was. The kids could touch stuff in the house. See Little Dude touching?!
Overall the Island Farm on Roanoke Island is a hidden treasure on the Outer Banks. Your family will really enjoy the time you have to spend there. Be sure to find them online at www.theislandfarm.com
Oh and be sure to visit the old kitchen … they may just have something from the farm there for you to taste. Little Dude LOVED they had just picked a watermelon!

Now that we are east coasters, the outer banks is on our vacation list. Thanks for posting!
