We will provide the space and hospitality and
can work with you to include farm and forest experiences.
Or even help design the programming!
Our full barn renovation was completed in Spring 2023!
"Dinner Bell Farm was the perfect place for our church leadership retreat. Stephanie is the most wonderful host, and her guided forest walk was an amazing gift to our group. The forest walk set the tone for the rest of our day with hopeful and gentle meditation. Our day at Dinner Bell allowed us to grow as a team and have the meaningful conversations that there just isn't time for in regular monthly meetings. The land, the company, the conversations, and Molly the Lab made our day a delight." - Rev. Keith Curl-Dove
Stephanie moved to NC in 2015 from Southwest FL to establish Dinner Bell Farm with her family and to discover how to live in harmony with the land and nature.

for native wildlife.
