Congaree and Penn offers tours for everyone, from kindergarteners to garden club members. Our farm emphasizes a seed to mouth and field to fork full circle understanding of food production. We strive to share an ethic of environmental stewardship and sustainability, exemplified in our farming practices.
You’ll also see our Jupiter rice paddies, muscadine grape vines, mayhaw and olive orchards, our tree nurseries, the oak hammocks, Congaree Creek, and sometimes our horses, depending on the time of day.
Are outside food and beverages permitted?
No. Our taproom and kitchen are open for you to enjoy before or after your farm tour. You’re welcome to bring bottled water, of course, but we invite you to indulge in our farm menu.
Can I bring my dog on the tour?
Because our farm wagons have limited seating, and because we need to respect everyone’s well being, dogs (with the exception of service dogs) cannot ride along in the farm wagons. Dogs are always welcome to enjoy the farm outside of farm tours. If you choose to book a private farm tour, you’re more than welcome to bring Fido along.
Tell me about the farm wagons.
Congaree and Penn uses our covered wagons with finished wood bench seats to escort guests throughout the property. No hay here! The wagons are handicap accessible.
Is the farm stroller friendly?
Most of the time! We have dirt roads that most strollers happily roll along. When it’s been raining, the roads do get wet and muddy, and when it has been very dry, the roads do become sandy.
Do you require adult supervision of children?
Yes. Congaree and Penn requests a minimum ratio of 1 adult for every 10 children to better ensure the safety of our guests and the preservation of our farm.
What should I bring with me?
Please be prepared with appropriate clothing, a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and insect repellant. You’re welcome to bring a bottle of water, but we do sell beverages. If you are allergic to bees, ants, other insects, or any other outdoor hazards, we advise you to bring an EpiPen, just in case.
What happens if it rains?
A little rain never hurt anyone, but in the event of inclement weather (like downpours, thunderstorms and hurricanes), we will reschedule your tour for a later date of your choosing.
