Father’s Day 2018

Father’s Day 2018 is On Deck! Here’s Some Tips to Make Sure You Are Ready

If you haven’t yet been able to find the perfect Father’s Day 2018 gift or make a plan for a great celebration, the staff here at Legacy Farms and Ranches of North Carolina has come up with some unique ideas that just might help. 

A Tasty Father’s Day 2018 Gift for the “Grilling Dad”

First, if your Father’s Day gift recipient is a grilling enthusiast, as many of us are, we bet they would love to receive one of the new Traeger grills – (we know we would!). Unlike a regular grill that uses charcoal or gas, Traeger grills are designed to use clean, convenient, easy to store wood pellets. Even better, these grills come in a huge variety of sizes and styles, making them perfect for any size deck or patio, as well as for camping and vacation use. 

Because Traeger grills use wood pellets instead of gas or briquets, your grilled food will never again have that funny taste from exposure to propane or charcoal lighter. Instead, it will just have a wonderful, hardwood flavor that is perfect for all types of meat, poultry, vegetables, fish, shellfish, and more. And because there is no messy charcoal to buy or store, clean up is quick and easy, too. 

The hardwood pellets come in a variety of flavors, including cherry wood, apple, hickory, and mesquite and are perfect for grilling, smoking, roasting, braising, baking, as well as those traditional North Carolina barbecue recipes.

The Perfect Father’s Day 2018 Gift for a “Hunter Dad” 

For Dad’s who are more about bagging the meat than grilling it, we also have a great gift idea for the “Hunter Dad”. May we suggest one of the new state-of-the-art covert cameras capable of letting Dad access, view, and manage wildlife photos instantly via his smart phone? 

Our personal favorite is the Blackhawk LTE, a trail cam certified by Verizon Mobile that can save Dad time while giving him a much clearer view of all the wildlife in his favorite hunting spot. Never again will he have to wait and wonder if that big buck showed up or whether those spring gobblers are still coming around. Instead of having to drive out and retrieve his current trail camera’s smart card to download and view wildlife pictures he can conveniently access them from his smart phone 24/7 from work, home, while traveling, or even while waiting in line at the grocery store. And since he can quickly and easily text or email the images to friends and family, every hunting trip is sure to become even more exciting. 

More Great Dad Gift Ideas with North Carolina Flair

If you are still undecided about what to get Dad or you just want to add a little something else to the plan for the day, may we suggest gathering the family together for a celebration meal at one of the best places to eat in Hatteras and Buxton NC. Two of the best include: 

  •  Pop’s Raw Bar in Buxton – serving delicious seafood, including oysters, crab cakes, shrimp, crab and all the fixings
  • or Sonny’s Restaurant in Cape Hatteras –  a local favorite for real home cooked breakfasts, and full lunch and dinner menu, including the freshest seafood and hand-cut steaks 

While in Cape Hatteras,we also suggest an after dinner excursion to check out some of the great regionally-inspired t-shirts designed by local artist, Kim Mosher

Real Estate is Always in Good Taste

A new country homestead, small farm, horse ranch, or parcel of hunting land is another great gift idea for Dad that he can enjoy with the entire family and we have lots of new listings to consider and more due to come on market over the next few weeks. As always, real estate buyers, sellers, or anyone with questions about North Carolina rural farms and land can reach Gardner at (919) 749-3177 or Frank at (919) 696-4249. 

A Parting Thought to Ponder

While a heartfelt gift is sure to always appreciated, don’t forget that time spent with family is most likely what your Dad wants most this Father’s Day.

From all of us here at Legacy Farms and Ranches of North Carolina, we wish everyone a safe and happy Father’s Day!
