The days are still warm in North Carolina, leaving a bit more time for us to enjoy swimming in George’s Pond. The nights have started to get cool, and we’re looking forward to fall at Pleasant Green Farms, when the hickory and maple trees will turn brilliant red and yellow.

Every season here at the farm is special to us because of the natural beauty of the surroundings but also because of how many opportunities we have to enjoy the outdoors as an extended family. These beautiful spaces foster play, conversation, connection, and true relaxation.

In the best-selling Last Child in the Woods: Saving our Children from Nature-Deficit-Disorder, author Richard Louv writes: “We have such a brief opportunity to pass on to our children our love for this Earth, and to tell our stories. These are the moments when the world is made whole. In my children’s memories, the adventures we’ve had together in nature will always exist.”

Check back soon for more news from Pleasant Green Farms, including information about the upcoming Parade of Homes and the new home being built for a family to create their own adventures, make new memories, and share a love for nature and connection to the land.
