At Timberline Farm, spanish-moss-draped trees form a verdant canopy above goats, which frequently bleats and accompanies a chorus of giggling children. Since 1988, the Franco family has tilled the farm’s cornfields and raised herds of goats, cows, and pigs. Now, the third-generation farmers welcome families onto their land for year-round educational exhibits and activities. Come fall, farmers transform the cornfield into a vast maze, and springtime ushers in the Butterfly Festival, when hundreds upon hundreds of sticks of butter take to the sky. Exhibits aim not only to introduce visitors to agriculture, but also to spotlight traditional trades, such as blacksmithing and butter making.
