Beneath blues skies an historic gem in the crown of Beaufort's Sea Islands beckons you to step into a bygone era. Pick Pocket Plantation is a mid-19th century plantation meticulously restored. Furnished with period antiques and surrounded by classic farm structures Pick Pocket takes one back to simpler times. Open for tours Monday through Saturday visitors will be taken through the house by the Victorian Ladies, Miss Millie and Miss Kim, in period costume and then stroll the plantation grounds to view the many outbuildings.

Cider Time!

One of the best things about Fall is apple cider!
At Pick Pocket Plantation the making of cider is an annual tradition.
Of course, we start with fresh North Carolina apples.
Mr. Keith himself makes this delicious cider at the packing shed on the plantation grounds.
First the apples are washed and rinsed.
From the rinse cycle the apples are put through this machine.
Mr. Keith hand cranks the apples through which results in...
apple cider:).
This homemade apple cider will be served piping hot around a campfire tonight on the plantation grounds as guests are told spine-tingling tales of local ghostly lore.
There are still a few tickets left for those who dare to be scared!
