Visit Emerald Farm Near Greenwood

By:Ernie Wiggins

Date:6/25/2011


It’s the hidden treasures that make driving along the less traveled roads like the National Heritage C​orridor particularly enjoyable. One such treasure is Emerald ​Farm. On 75 acres of pasture land on the outskirts of Greenw​ood, cows, goats, sheep and chickens and a variety of crops are used to produce gift items like soap made from Saanen goats milk and herbal personal care products. All products made at the farm are sold in the general store, which also stocks nutritional food products and items for train hobbyists.

Visitors, especially children, can ride a small train for a leisurely tour of the farm or roam freely to see the livestock in the open fields, ducks and geese in the pond at the center of the farm and the peacock promenading around the barnyard.

The farm, which is owned and operated by Paul and Kathryn Zahn, is open to visitors Tuesday-Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Group tours can arranged by calling 864-223-2247.

Emerald Farm is located at 409 Emerald Farm Road, Greenwood.
