Explore life down on the farm! From animals to fresh produce and more -- it's worth exploring the roots of America with the people who still dig deep, sow and reap.
About 1818 Farms
1818 Farms is nestled in the historic township of Mooresville Alabama in southern Limestone County. The McCrary family want to keep the traditions of farming alive and began the farm with grand dreams. Part of their hard work involves keeping the legacy of Babydoll Sheep alive by breeding them and sending them to new flocks to bolster the breed.
Today, 1818 Farms has blossomed into an event venue hosting a variety of workshops, Farm to Tables, roving floral trucks and even birthday parties for the wee ones. Every member of the farm gets involved in these ventures -- the Babydoll Sheep, Chickens, Cats, and more are part of the reason to visit. Be sure to watch our event calendar for upcoming events at 1818 Farms.
Another burgeoning business to come from the farm is the growing and world renowned collection of home and personal items - like tea towels, lotions, and other products. You'll find these treasures on their website as well as spas and Home and Garden Magazine Stores popping up around the world.
Tours of 1818 Farms are by scheduled appointment or hosted event. Learn more about guided tours here.
