Farm to Table Tubing or Kayaking

Search our Site


Due to unforeseen issues between the State of NC and the Tin Shed we are not sure if or when we will be able to provide guests with this trip option in 2019. The Tin Shed was forced to close at the end of last season.

(5 and under Tube free)

Yes literally! Hop in one of our heavy-duty tubes or kayaks and float for 2.5-3 hours down the North Toe River from a picturesque horse farm and suspension bridge to our take out at Soggy Bottom Farms. During the float you will see towering cliffs and encounter a few small rapids. Then take a short walk to The Tin Shed where each person will have a 10$ credit towards an array of “Farm to Table” meal options. Tin Shed also has various vegetarian options from local gardens!!! Enjoy a unique dining experience complete with adorable farm animals including rabbits, pigs, a really awesome goat and playground! Great family atmosphere with AMAZING food situated in the Blue Ridge Mountains alongside of the North Toe River! Support Rural Tourism! Support local food! Also big thanks to Springmaid Mountain Resort for helping make this a possibility!
