About Robin Townsend

The Townsends are among the families whose ancestors first settled in the area now known as Valle Crucis. My husband, Fred, is a fifth generation native. Our two sons are sixth generation and we hope to pass the family farm along to the 7th generation (our grandsons). Me? Robin. Well, my ancestors date back to the original native Americans here in the valley - the Cherokee. So my ancestors were here long before the Townsends came to settle in the valley now known as Valle Crucis.

Why Robin Townsend chose Valle Crucis

Hen's Tooth Acres Farm is a treasure as rare as Hen's Teeth. We provide our guests with a genuine - and truly unique - small family farm experience. We are close to everything yet you'll feel like you've left the hustle and bustle of everyday life far-far behind you - giving you the best of both worlds. R&R when you want it or plenty of recreation, shopping, dining and assorted things to do when you don't.

What makes this apartment unique

Farm fresh free range eggs for breakfast, handcrafted goat's milk soaps (made with essentail oils) and come along at chore time if you'd like to share in caring for the farm animals. You may even want to try your hand at milking a goat or gathering fresh eggs. Perhaps you'd like to take a hike up the mountain. All of this and more...but you'll not find another vacation experience in the High Country that will even come close to the uniqueness of all that Hen's Tooth Acres Farm has to offer.

I feel so blessed to find this gem, the owners are wonderful. The apt. is more than well stocked.
My neighbor came for 2 nts, and all us city slickers can't wait to return.
Please whatever your age , help (Farmer Fred is doing you a favor), the "chores". It is an eye opener.
Great care & intelligence are put into the working of this farm.

The owners are the stewards that make & maintain the NC mountains our treasure.

Can't wait to return!!!! Oh you can get the wonderful goats milk soap at the RiverCross next to the Mast General Store. It is wonderful , still using it for face & etc.
Have a great time, I did.

our anniversary trip

  • 5 of 5
My husband is a cattle farmer and heard about this working goat farm where we could get fresh eggs and goat milk soap! He scheduled this trip knowing I would experience things that I hadn't seen in my 59 years.....I loved the cozy rental home with the most awesome Host and Hostess we have ever had. We went out the next morning to watch as they did the chores....first time for this "city-raised girl" to see chickens and fresh eggs, goats being milked, guineas and geese. They have horses and cattle, which looked familiar to me but I haven't ever picked apples from a tree and fed them to horses. And, I bet I ate a gallon of those juicy, sweet grapes within an hour of my husband picking them for me. You can swing and pick the grapes from over your head while you watch baby calves run up the mountainside - picture that, if you will - sweet sight. We have made lifelong friends at "Hen's Tooth Acres" and we will be back! We brought home 12 bars of goat milk soap and will have to go back for more! Hopefully, we can stay more than two days the next time because we had all the comforts of home with a king-size bed and huge bathtub!

Wonderful vacation, great weather............

  • 5 of 5
This was our second trip to Hen's Tooth and we had a great time - beautiful scenery, nice weather and many hours on the farm just relaxing. Perfect spot for a weekend getaway or a long vacation (9 days for us). Setup is perfect, rooms are spacious and kitchen is wonderful. Cooked many meals while there. Fred was an awesome host and enjoyed talking with him on various occasions. The Townsends really make you feel at home and it quickly became our home away from home.

Owner's Response: While we can't control the weather -but we sure are glad it was nice during your visit- we do strive to make the Hen's Tooth Acres Farm house apartment feel like your home away from home from our well equipped kitchen to our spacious rooms. We appreciate the compliment of you paying us a return visit and hope this is but one more of many. The Townsends

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
For our third visit to the farm, my girls and I brought my parents. We all enjoyed the spectacular view of the pastures and helping Farmer Fred with the chores. My dad enjoyed cooking some green eggs (the shell is green) and ham each morning. The apartment is fantastic - clean, spacious, and more than well stocked. The hosts, Feed and Robin, are easy-going and extremenly hospitable. I highly recommend a visit to any and all. Henstooth acres just gives you a good feeling that stays with you. I look forward to returning again!

We had a wonderful time on the farm! My daughter loved being able to participate in the farm chores. We enjoyed learning from Farmer Fred about the different chickens, goats, and horses. The apartment was cozy with plenty of space and had toys for kids. We hope to come back again this summer!
