The Barn & Farmyard
Antler Hill Barn
Step into the everyday lives of families who lived on the estate raising livestock, tending crops, and working at Biltmore Dairy in the 1890s. The Barn in Antler Hill Village—once the social and work center for these families—is once again a lively hub of activity, featuring:
- Live demonstrations by blacksmiths, woodworkers, and other craftspeople
- Turn-of-the-century games, and hands-on crafts for the kids
- Shopping at The Barn Door, home to a unique selection of American-made arts and crafts items
- Casual dining at our Smokehouse, which offers Carolina barbeque, quick sandwiches, and other Southern favorites
The Farmyard in Antler Hill Village
Kids will enjoy meeting the friendly farm animals at the Farmyard, plus such daily activities as farm talks, sheep herding, goat milking, and goat brushing and hoof trimming demonstrations.
Our playground features climbing logs like those harvested by students in Biltmore’s forestry school. There’s also a lookout, a rock climbing formation, a sand play area, and other activities that connect the estate’s past with your children’s imagination.
Access to Antler Hill Barn & Farmyard is included in your Biltmore daytime admission.
