The Prince Family has been in the Carolina low-country since the 1670s, and here on this property since 1827. The farm and family have seen many changes throughout the centuries, and is looking to the future! An experimental and educational farm, we are working to bring a high level of self-sufficiency here and to share our knowledge with our visitors. This is the farm's 7th year hosting visitors. Thirty-eight countries represented and over 200 folks staying, all have helped make the farm a better place. They have laughed, learned, sweated, grown and eaten some great food. We hope all that spend time here will take something positive away with them. Looking forward to another year of great helpers & guests! Located in the Carolina Lowcountry, on the NC/SC border in the lower coastal plain, the farm is 30 miles NW of Myrtle Beach, SC, just outside a small rural town. I own 120+ acres of mixed pine/hardwood forest and fields, and a large 2-story 1880s farmhouse--the land has been in our family since 1827. Would like to get it back to the level of self-sufficiency of my great-grandparents' day. The property has a small pond, an extensive network of trails(several miles), fruit(plum, persimmon, nectarine, cherry, quince, loquat, apple, serviceberry, fig, black currant, hardy kiwi, peach, pomegranate, pear) and nut(pecan, chestnut, hazelnut)trees, grapevines, blackberry, raspberry & blueberry bushes, a dog(Snoddy Dawg!), friendly barn cats, poultry(Chickens, geese, ducks, guineas, turkeys, bantams), lots of wildlife, as well as a zone 8 growing season(4 season garden). Learn more about this land: Lots of private camping spaces throughout our mixed pine/hardwood forest! Several miles of hiking trails that will take you through many different ecosystems unique to the Carolina Bays. A water-lovers dream: 30 minutes to Myrtle Beach, SC, 5 minutes to Lake Tabor, 20 minutes to the Lumber or Waccamaw Rivers, 25 minutes to Lake Waccamaw! Come experience the legendary Southern Hospitality of the Carolina Low-country! Please plan to arrive 30 minutes to 1 hour before sunset as host will need to walk you to camping area.

Private, wooded site
The host was very nice and accommodating. The site is very private and a good distance from the house. Be sure to ask about how to drive to the site if you have a basic 4WD capability on your vehicle (but this may vary based on planting/growing season). The site itself is just inside the treeline behind a field, and on our evening, it was pretty heavily covered in mosquitos. We tried for an hour to get the wood on site to settle into a usable fire to drive the mosquitos away, but we were not able to keep it lit without some superhuman effort, so we just turned in. Again, private site and wonderful hosts. Just be aware of the propensity for mosquito breeding in the time of year you’re camping and bring your own wood if you can.

Easy to find. Owner very nice. Park at the farmhouse. Walk about 200 yards across field to site located in the woods. Very quiet. If you looking to get off the beaten path this will do it. Welcome break from big city life.
