Beginning the week of August 16th, Island Farm will offer three new hands-on “mini-programs” exploring distinct and fascinating topics: subsistence and commercial fishing, quilting, and mid-19th century gardening.
Located on the north-end of Roanoke Island, offers a trip back in time to 1850’s Outer Banks. Open Tuesday through Friday, the living history site offers daily mini-programs including visits with the site’s Corolla wild horses, live blacksmithing, farmhouse tours, toys and games, weaving, and other traditional crafts. All new mini-programs are included in the cost of admission, which is $8 per person for those aged four and older, and free for ages 0-3. Island Farm hours are Tuesday – Friday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. through November. The farmstead is located at 1140 N US Highway 64, north of Manteo, on Roanoke Island.
