The 62+ acres upon which McDonald Artisan Farms sits has a rich history. This land was a land grant to James Ray in 1771 from King George of England. The house on the property is one of the oldest in Moore County built in 1772. Housed within the open pastures and wooded areas are Ray's Mill Creek and a plethora of wildlife habitats. The extreme eastern portion of the property is part of a nationally significant Natural Heritage Area known as Paint Hill due to its unusual plant and animal assemblages. The eastern boundary of the property is adjacent to Weymouth Woods State Nature Preserve. Inactive cavity trees of the federally-endangered red-cockaded woodpecker and a robust population of a federal species, Sandhills pixie moss, are found on the land adjacent to the eastern boundary of the property with the strong likelihood of future colonization onto the property. Today, McDonald Artisan Farms is being utilized as a venue for weddings, events, concerts and craft fairs. Land part of a Grant of Conservation Easement in place through Sandhills Area Land Trust (SALT), see Documents. Please note house, well, septic and other structures on the property owner is making no representation as to the condition, property being sold for land value only. Land located within Aberdeen ETJ.
