Just around the corner from downtown Jacksonville, Congaree and Penn began as a rice farm. It’s flourished into acres of mayhaw orchards, olive orchards, vineyards and fruit fields. It's also become a home to thousands of honeybees, a few dozen fancy chickens, peafowl, Guinea fowl and two goats.


Guests are greeted at the Congaree and Penn quonset hut, where we mill our rice, manufacture our products, make our cider, keep our kitchen and host events. There you’ll find the patio, the cider garden, farm tables and chairs, and our farm shop and taproom.

Hop on a tractor pulled farm wagon and enjoy a cruise through the farm. Your guide will make frequent stops to point out what's growing and what's happening at Congaree and Penn.

Farm Tour FAQs

Can I bring my dog?

Well behaved dogs on leashes are always welcome, but must be kept away from our farm animals. We ask that you please let us know in advance if you’d like to bring your canine companion on the tour.

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 paved dirt roads that most strollers happily roll along. When it’s been raining, the roads do get wet and muddy.

Do you require a certain number of adults to supervise children?

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, hats, sunscreen, and bug spray. 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 thunderstorms and hurricanes), we will reschedule your tour for a later date of your choosing.
