About Abigail Townsend

The Townsends are among the families whose ancestors first settled in the area now known as Valle Crucis. Hen's Tooth Acres is run by Fred Townsend along with his son Chris, daughter in law Abi & 2 grandsons Finn & Rowan. All share in caring for & keeping the farm & animals in good shape.

Why Abigail Townsend chose North Carolina

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.

We had tha best time with farmer fred and his farm animals. My 2 grandaughters 3 and 4 loved feeding all the animals and doing the chores. Fred's rental was awesome, it had everything you needed and more. We will definitely come again.

Felt like home !!

  • 5 of 5

I have never stayed somewhere where it felt so much like a second home. Farmer Fred shares his knowledge (and his beautifulsos MAX) of ALL his animals and the function of the farm. His presence is known but by NO means Overwhelming - great experience for families or grown adults. Nothing to say but PERFECT !!

Exactly what we we looking for !

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely one of our best vacations! My 11 year old said she liked it better than Disney! We we were greeted right away upon arrival and walked to our large apartment overlooking the pasture with a mountain backdrop. We had a lovely little fenced in garden area with patio swing, perfect to let out our small dog to explore. In our apartment we had a dozen fresh farm eggs and some aromatic goats milk soap waiting for us as an arrival gift. We enjoyed playing with the fusball table our first night and got settled in. Although the temperature outside was very cold, our place was cozy warm. The beds are comfortable and we slept well. Making breakfast was really easy with all the dishes and pans available. The pantry was even stocked with coffee and sundry of other things. It was quite and relaxing! Just what we were looking forward to! Our whole family (3) helped with the farm chores each morning: collecting eggs, & feeding the chickens, goats and cows. We even tried our hand at milking the goat! We hope to come back to Hen's Tooth Acre Farms in the spring or summer to see the baby goats and cows!

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I only stayed for 3 nights at Hens Tooth Acres Farm but I wish we could have stayed longer. It is absolutely beautiful and one of the most relaxing vacations we've ever taken. Farmer Fred is amazing with children. He is very patient and kind. He teaches them about the farm animals and allows them to participate in the farm chores. Our 6 year old son did not want to come home. He told us he wanted to move into the apartment at Farmer Fred's house. It is definitely worth your time and money to stay here. We will most definitely be back and have already started talking about our next trip here.

Had such a amazing time at Fred's Farm

  • 5 of 5

The farm had all that you needed and was completely cozy. Fred was so good with Sierra. He showed her how to handle the eggs from the hens, how to milk the goats, how to feed apples to "Vadar" the horse, and she loved the baby chicks and lastly the friendly sheep dog "Max". She waited for Fred every morning and evening to do the chores. Once we left the place she said "can we come back again"

If for any reason you are the fence about staying don't be you will not be disappointed.

Thanks again Fred for a wonderfull time. Rob, Jo and Sierra
