Landrums Morning Meadow Farm will join this years FENCE Holiday Barn Tour on November 28, presented by Morton Buildings and Equine Sponsor, Carolina Storage Solutions.
Mr. and Mrs. Ray Norden completed the property in 2007, after relocating to Landrum from Florida.
Cindy Norden had a long career in television with NBC, CNBC and as a field producer for Martha Stewart, while Ray Norden was a professional polo player.
Their 12-stall barn reflects polos emphasis on practicality and function, with a wide center aisle and a generous tack room housing Mr. Nordens polo equipment.
Guests on the tour will meet the 31 year-old mare Spiral, who in her career has been a polo pony, a dressage horse, and a fox hunter. Visitors will also be treated to a hands-on polo demonstration by Ray Norden.
Other barns on this years self-guided tour include Green Creek Miniature Farm, Freer Farm, Silver Moon Ranch, and Follow Your Bliss Farm, all in Green Creek; Bickford Farm, also in Campobello; and Barking Fox Farm in Landrum.
Activities along the tour will include a miniature horse carriage driving exhibition at Green Creek Miniature Farm, an equine wellness presentation by Dr. Bibi Freer at her Freer Farm, and lunch at Motlow Creek Gardens, the midway point of the tour.
