Cloud 9 farm is a sanctuary for wildlife and turkeys are so prevalent in Western North Carolina but here but here, they have full roam of the 200 acre farm and don't have to interact with highway traffic, roads or people. In the spring, especially, you'll want to be here because mating season is upon us. It's when the tom turkeys fan their tails and gobble with importance hoping to attract hens for their harem.
