Meet the goats at Split Creek Farm

Posted 11/7/2012 2:45:00 PM

Visit Split Creek Farm in Anderson for Arts and Crafts in the Barn Yard, and spend some time checking out the farm’s goat herd.

The event is 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10. I’ve been a huge fan of Split Creek’s feta cheese, specifically the marinated feta with sun-dried tomatoes and olives (you get to choose black or green) since I bought a jar a couple of years ago at Greenville’s TD Saturday Market. It is without a doubt some of the best stuff I’ve ever put in my mouth, but that’s only one of the specialty cheeses, fudge and yogurt that owners Evin Evans and Pat Bell offer.

At Arts and Crafts in the Barn Yard, you can see and buy the work of local artisans and crafts people, and you can visit the farm animals. In addition to the goat herd, chickens, rabbits and pigs live on the farm.

You can also sample Split Creek's artisan goat milk, cheeses, yogurt and fudge at the Nov. 10 event. Admission is $4 for adults, $2 for children 12 and under, and free for children younger than 2. You can also buy lunch there.
