  • Nice place to take children or grand-children.....buckets of dirt vary in price and size. Children will enjoy "panning" for their gems.

  • We had so much fun. This was a cool activity to do on a date. There was something surprisingly relaxing about sifting through all that dirt! The employees were helpful and friendly; one employee in particular was very knowledgeable about the gemstones and identified most of them for us free of charge (don't forget to tip). Feeding the goats was an added bonus. 😊
  • We ended up here accidentally after typing the wrong location into Google maps, but that mistake turned out working out great! This is not just a place for kids. We spent a good couple hours exploring band learning about the different gems and minerals, pondering the beauty of some of the less common specimens. We secretly picked a heart made from a certain unique stone for each of us, played in the petting zoo and bought some great mementos! My favorite section is the fossils. I saw an awesome trilobite specimen that I just had to have, and Joe gave me a great price! He was very kind and answered all of out questions. Definitely stop by here if you are in the area and spend some time wandering the store and learning about minerals, geology, and see some really cool stuff! Visited March 2016
  • I have recently moved into this area and this place was really fun and it's just a great little place all the way around. Especially for the kids. Had a lovely experience from the goat's to mining for gems. It was a good time.
  • New experience for us. Joe was very helpful and knowledgeable. Best pricing by far around Hendersonville area.
  • This place is awesome and super friendly. Took my son here and he absolutely loved it. Great prices and we got the Large Prospector's Dream bucket and left with almost two bags of gems.
