AROUND dogwood hills
While there is plenty to see and do at the farm, there are so many other adventurous things to do in the Ozark Mountains and Searcy County. All of these activities are within an hour from Dogwood Hills.
We encourage you to explore the area as it is truly spectacular.
OZARK FOLK CENTER
Visit The Ozark Folk Center to learn about the heritage of this area. There is much to do there including participating in pioneer craft, herb gardening and other workshops. Enjoy a meal at the Skillet Restaurant, and attend an American folk music show in the center's theater. The Ozark Folk Center also includes the General Store, SmokeHouse and Homespun Gifts shop.
With all that and more there, it is well worth the one hour drive from the Farmhouse. For more details including rates and hours, as well as to see what events are scheduled, visit ozarkfolkcenter.com.

GOOD LOCAL EATIN'
Farm to Table:
Staying on the farm gives you the exclusive opportunity to dine right here. Family style or fine dining, you won't be disappointed. Our kitchen is gluten free but you would be hard pressed to tell the difference from grass fed local meats to hand rolled pasta and pastry.
