After a couple decades on an acre of land, we bought 30 acres, packed up our chickens & honeybees, dug up as many of our perennial herbs as we could, & planted ourselves on an abandoned farmstead here in Bullock Creek, SC.
It was the year 2020 & the world had turned upside down. We needed good roots, good soil, good vibes .. and we wanted to share our path to here & our steps into the future. And so we have been renewing this old farmstead with the intention of sharing it with others through agritourism, (a “mod” word that can be translated as “ya’ll come!”) – offering educational & personal enrichment experiences through guided walking tours, workshops & retreats, and even overnight opportunities.
This place has soothed our hearts & minds, deepened our relationship with Nature’s gifts. We know it will yours too.Jon & Jan Pendleton
