 Whispering Pines is a family owned working farm and licensed Grade A Raw Goat & Sheep milk dairy and cheese making facility. We're here most of the time but we might out working with the livestock. It's always best to give us a quick text to see what we're up to before driving over-864-360-3222. We want visitors and all our beloved animals to be safe. For this reason, we don't allow visitors to roam around the property without one of our staff. Farm Tours are available by appointment. Great for the children! The fee for a Family Farm Tour is $5 per person with a $20 minimum fee. You can add a pony ride to the tour for an additional charge of $20 per child. Large group tours scroll down to Field trips. We're closed on Sundays.
