        4B Farm has now become 4B Farm & Campground and is back open year-round!

        Located adjacent to the Uwharrie National Forest and at the Badin Lake Recreation Area,

        4B Farm is a great destination for the outdoor enthusiast whether it’s trailriding

        on your horse or floating the waters of Badin or Uwharrie in your boat, kayak or canoe!

        One thing that hasn’t changed is that 4B is still proud to be part of the Cowboy Church Network by partnering with 4B Chapel to continue church services on the premises Sunday mornings. The Cowboy Church Network’s Jeff Smith is here on the 1st and 3rd Sundays to speak God’s word and previous owner, Larry Blackburn, continues to return on 2nd and 4th Sundays with God’s word. Everyone’s invited to come fellowship with food and coffee beginning at 8:15 am and hear the message at 8:30 am.
