In the kitchen they were showing the cooking of a meal on a wood cook stove all from foods grown on the farm. There was a display... More

I found this by searching for stuff to do near Myrtle Beach, since our visit was in late December and it was chilly. This was on the way to the beach for us but when we stopped it was closed for holiday that day. I wish it had been announced on the recording I listened to, as it was about... More

My husband and I visited the Living Farm from very busy Myrtle Beach where we were staying. We just loved the serene setting and history that went along with it. We both felt this was more our style rather than the touristy area near our hotel. The Farm was very education for us since we live in New England and... More

Absolutely loved showing my daughter, and grandson the way I grew up. Unfortunately, the whole family was not able to go with us. From the house showing the everyday living, to the gathering and curing of tobacco was the way I grew up. My grandson loved the animas!!

This is a great place to take the kids. It's a working farm so they get to see what it was like to live back in the day before technology took over.

Paul Living History Farm is a wonderful reminder of a simpler time when people were practically self-sufficient, growing and harvesting their own food. At various times of the year. the L.W. Paul farm puts on demonstrations such as harvesting and curing tobacco,... More

I drove up only to find out it closed at Exactly 4pm. Wasted 2 hrs driving. Could you please post your hours of operation? The property is well worth the trip but photography from outside the fence was not exactly the greatest without a very long lens.

Very interesting farm recreation of a one horse, family farm during the 1900 - 1930 time fram. This is a working farm and you can see first hand how it was done. When we were there, sugar cane was being pressed using a mule driven press. Once cooked down, sugar cane syrup is bottled and available for purchase. Kids would... More

We've been to the farm on a few occasions and had fun and learned a lot each time. The grand kids loved it too because they have projects for the children. It's interesting to see how things were done many years ago and to learn about the culture of the area.
