ABOUT WHISPERING PINES FARM
We’re a work in progress. Whispering Pines Farm grew from a 20 acre farm with a riding academy, pony ride birthday parties and tack shop turned cheese shop in Mauldin, SC to 180 acres in a much more rural location in Seneca, Oconee County, SC.
At this new location, we traded our indoor arena and party rooms for an expanded dairy and cheese making facilities, set up a picnic area and have miles of horse back riding trails. And there is enough land for all of the livestock to forage and thrive.
There are beautiful areas to hike and explore and ponds for fishing, along with abundant wildlife and awesome photo opportunities all around.
We offer farm tours, cheese making classes and even seasonal classes on how to milk sheep and goats as well as how to assist the sheep and goats giving birth!
There are great sites for primitive camping areas and we’re working on some areas for glamping! There is even a river that would be great for kayaking and fishing.
There are always new things to do at the farm. Follow us on Facebook and check back often for updates on upcoming events and special farm announcements.
