Howell Farm spins an agricultural story stretching back more than 250 years to the site's initial settlement in the 1730s. Within that time, the land has changed hands from many different families; the years have found it transformed from a grain farm to a dairy farm, with various incarnations in between. Today, it enjoys a spot on the National Register of Historic Places, and it invites visitors to travel back in time to experience a taste of what farm life was like in the years between 1890 and 1910.
Depending on the time of year, guests may get to help plant or harvest crops, or shell and grind corn inside the 1800s barn before baking it into cornbread. Visitors often get to help care for the animals, learn to make soap, or churn fresh butter and ice cream––all using authentic, turn-of-the-century methods. Admission is free, but during autumn the farm raises funds by charging admission to a miles-long corn maze that challenges families and friends to navigate winding paths and resist the urge to butter and season their surroundings.

The Anti-Age Spa at Leigh Ann's aestheticians wage an all-out war on aging, restoring taut, youthful-looking skin with the aid of FDA-approved treatments. In the 40- to 60-minute collagen-induction-therapy treatment, a medical-grade dermaroller trundles over the face and neck, creating micropunctures that allow the spa's therapeutic products and custom-made serums to penetrate deeper, much as perforating a baguette with a toothpick allows it to absorb Kool-Aid better than ever before. The dermaroller stimulates production of collagen and elastin, tightening skin, reducing fine lines, and minimizing wrinkles, resulting in immediate offers to host TV news broadcasts. The procedure requires minimal downtime, though patients may experience a few days to a week of tender facial skin and possible swelling. Patrons also receive 15 percent off retail skincare products at their appointment.
