Enjoy the cool, green, fresh Blue Ridge simplicity of our farm.
Escape the hectic pressures of the city. Enjoy the freshness of our forest at the end of the world but, still be in the middle of things.
The motto at one of our nearest restaurants in Lansing, North Carolina (192 friendly people) was: “This is not the end of the world but you can see it from here”.
Merrily Farms is at the end of the world… isolated… nurtured in nature… serene… a perfect place for creativity and peace.
When Merri and I sold our print publishing business in the 1990s, we built cabins and a seminar hall and renovated cottages here.
Readers who come for private self publishing and internet micro business consultations often stay in the cabins.
The farm is always quiet, peaceful and relaxing. We built this covered bridge as it allowed us to cross Little Horse Creek…before that one had to wade through!
In times that so many perceive as tumultuous, inspiration becomes even more valuable and important in business. The news on the internet, in the papers and on TV are so filled with negativity that it can be catching. In such eras, those who see positive realities gain an extra edge. This is the place where you leave all this behind.
Our idea was to have small seminars at the farm.
A group with us at the farm.
There was a problem. The seminars and courses kept growing too large. This is a pleasant problem but a difficulty still.
We have given up and have the seminars in West Jefferson at the Jefferson Landing Country Club where there is plenty of space.
We now offer these cabins as quiet escapes at the end of the world, even if you do not want a private consultation.
The cabins and cottage are available for a few days, a week or even a month so you can enjoy the peace and beauty of the Blue Ridge… as Merri and I do.
Make Merrily Farms your escape to our remote North Carolina farm on Little Horse Creek.
