Do you need a place to slow down and take a break from the hectic pace of life? A place to get something done or do nothing at all. Whatever your need, The Farm Retreat may be your perfect spot to gain clarity and direction for your life, your business, your soul. We welcome your rental inquiry for your next small group or board retreat. The retreat house (built in 2005) and property is rented on a limited basis for gatherings of 30 or less.

Affectionately called “The Farm,” this awesomely beautiful private homestead (est. 1888) spans 50 acres of rolling woodland and walking trails only 5 minutes off I-40 and I-77 intersection in Statesville, NC. Paths, pond, special spots for resting, journaling, community gathering and more await you. The Farm is owned, loved and cared for by brothers Ray and Tom Starrette and their wives Sandi and Ann. Because this is a private setting and not open to the public at large or to sightseers, directions follow your registration deposit.
