Brookhaven Mill Farm began as the Anderson Farm in 1882 in Guilford County, NC. After having passed through several owners, each lovingly adding their own style and improvements, the farm is now owned by Cheryl Preston, who manages over 100 animals, including donkeys, mini horses, sheep, goats, chickens and geese, and opens the farm gates to the public as an agritourism experience.
The Farm has quickly become popular with the locals for providing locally-sourced food and gifts, especially the farm eggs.
Stop by any weekend to see the animals for free; or pay $1 for critter food if you want to feed them! For a more interactive experience, try our "Animal Therapy" where we open our barnyard up and allow you to visit with our animals in their environment.
We have a large Barn Pavilion we rent out for folks to hold their own workshops, reunions, office parties, or what has become wildly popular: Kids Barnyard Birthday Bashes with private petting zoo!
Want the country experience without engaging with the animals? Stay at our farmhouse with 2 large rooms overlooking the property and watch the sheep graze from your bedroom window!
Enjoy a made-to-order country breakfast served on beautiful china in our parlor. If you want to arrive the night before and pick your own eggs for breakfast the next morning, the chicken coop is just steps away and our eggs are beautiful, delicious and nutritious!
Getting married and on a tight budget? We offer up our property for you to have the wedding you desire and guests will never forget!
