At our gem mine you can dig your own bucket of gem dirt and sieve it by the creek to find emeralds, rubies, sapphires, amethysts, and more. You can pan for gold right in the creek, too. At the gift shop we have supplies to turn your find into a pendant or other jewelry, and we have gift “Treasure Boxes” of gem dirt to mail or take home.

Here in the Great Smoky Mountains, many Southern Highlanders still farm in the ways of their ancestors. Experience living history here at Randall Glen, when we plow with horses, shear the sheep, perhaps cook up a batch of biscuits on a wood stove. You might even get to hand the farrier his nails when he shoes the horses.
