Fun at the Farm

You never forget your first time tubing. The cold water, the exciting currents, the sunny patches that warm you up–tubing is about as much fun as you can have on a river. If you were lucky enough to grow up with a proper Southern upbringing, floating down the river on a giant tube was probably one of the best parts of your childhood summers. North River Farms knows how much Southerners love tubing, so for the past few summers we’ve offered guided tube rides down the Mills River.

If you’re looking to enjoy the river without actually having to get into it (We understand–the water can be cold!), maybe an afternoon spent on the banks is more your style. We have a fantastic picnic area, complete with tables, swings, and a campfire spot. While you’re picnicking, maybe you could get some fishing in, too. (You’ll have to bring your favorite fishing pole and your trout-stamped fishing license, of course, and catching the fish is up to you!)


For something truly unique, North River Farms also offers guided horseback rides around our property. If you’re an experienced rider or just want to spend a few hours on the back of a horse taking in some beautiful scenery, this is a great way to spend an afternoon.

And if you just can’t stand the thought of leaving the farm after the great day you’ve had, bring a tent and set up camp by the river. We have a primitive, all-natural campsite available! There is a fire ring, a great spot for a tent, and enough firewood to keep your marshmallows toasted all evening.

The best part about all these fun activities is that you don’t just have to pick one–call us up and we can work out a package that includes two, three, or more of these activities in one awesome day at the farm. All of our activities are by appointment only, so contact us today to schedule your full day of fun at the farm!
