Darby Acres Farm
Do you love animals? If the answer is yes, you’ll love Darby Acres Farm. A fun, family-run mobile petting zoo, Darby Acres Farm was started by Dwayne and Jennifer, a couple who named their farm after Darby, their dear daughter. What’s really interesting about it however, is the fact that entertaining visitors is not their only aim – Dwayne and Jennifer consider their animals a part of their family as well, and in fact many of the animals on their property have been rescued, restored to health and adopted by them, or have been raised since birth.
Darby Acres Farm offers the company of their animals for both educational and entertainment purposes. Besides offering mobile petting zoo and pony rides, Darby Acres also hosts a wide range of events (from birthday parties and bridal showers to luaus and Bar Mitzvahs, and much more) and bring out a variety of animals, based on the package chosen. They extend their services to wherever you’d like to hold your event, and also host a variety of activities, and take care of food and decorations, if needed.

Yes, that's right. The erstwhile Passion8 is now Luca's Modern Italian Kitchen. Everything else, though, is still the same. Or rather, even better. Not only is Luca's one of the best Italian restaurants in Charlotte and its environs, it is also the best Italian restaurant serving food made from locally-sourced ingredients.
