Take tours with Crystal Willett, aka The Farm Chick, on her farm. Crystal is one of Chatham County’s first People-First Tourism micro-entrepreneurs.

Combine this tour with a stay at one of our inns or visit for the day and have lunch at one of our eateries.

Tour of chicken and rabbit agribusiness
Near her home, Crystal has rented space in an acclimatized barn to raise chickens and rabbits to local retailers and visitors. In this two-hour tour, Crystal will share her extensive experience in raising small livestock. You can learn more about incubating eggs and raising chicks and rabbits; you can also look at a nursery for exotic pets like Chinchillas and gliders. This is a great educational tour for those considering backyard chickens or rabbits. Or just relax and take a stroll through the pasture on the property.

Price: $40.00 for groups of five or less with a surcharge of $5 per extra person to be paid in cash on-site. Please keep pets at home due to the health of the animals.
Available: daily with confirmed reservation.

Visit to small family farm
Visit Crystal on a two-hour visit to her farm to learn about the challenges and rewards of life on a family farm. The grounds of Crystal’s farm include a small hatchery and nursery for poultry; (you may get a chance to see baby chicks hatching), a hen house where you can gather some eggs, and several small coops where different breeds can be observed. The pigs live in the Pond-erosa, a pond Crystal fenced herself with recycled pallets! The pigs are always hungry, so you’ll have the chance to pay them a visit and feed them. She’ll show you her vegetable garden, a small blueberry patch, a rolling chicken coop and other features that make her land a productive family farm. This tour is a great option for children! Crystal’s eight year old son, Danny, will occasionally be a tour guide. Danny has just published his first book about farms and children. You can take an autographed book home as a souvenir!

Price is for groups of five or less with a surcharge of $5 per extra person to be paid in cash on-site. Please keep your pets at home due to the health of the farm animals.
Available: daily with confirmed reservation.
