New Year's Day Hike
Lindale Farm, Guilford County

Farm owner, Harriett Mattes, will host us at Lindale Farm in Guilford County (High Point) - PLC's first protected farm encompassing 109 acres along the Deep River. Enjoy a guided hike/walk around the farm to see what PLC has protected and how the farm has changed over the years from a traditional dairy farm to its present-day of raising chickens and produce under a CSA program. Visit the reconstructed barn (post lightning fire) with silos, loft and original milking stalls. Farm animals include chickens, ducks, milking goats with their Great Pyrenees guard dog, and honey bees. Walk around the scenic pond but no swimming! If you're lucky you might also catch sight of Roxanne the red-tailed hawk who was released on the farm a couple years ago. Hikes will be led by PLC staff, followed by hot chili and cider. No pets please! Please sign up for this hike by contacting PLC by email at or by calling the PLC office at 336.691.0088.
