Located just over the Rowan County line on 150, you’ll find a local treasure full of family spirit and unique gifts for everyone on your gift list. McLaughlin’s Farmhouse was a dream of Bill and Tom McLaughlin and their families for years. When the dream became reality the brothers and their families’ gorgeous country store became mainstays with the locals.

Lake crew, y’all drive yourself 5 minutes outside of downtown Mooresville and experience homegrown love at its finest.

The store will be open until Christmas Eve except Sunday. You’ll want to stop in for last minute gift boxes or baskets that can be pre-bought or made to order. While you’re there, grab yourself some breakfast meat including the best sausage and livermush you’ve ever had (made on-site so it’s uber-fresh). Add some fresh syrup and pancake mix for the perfect Christmas morning breakfast.

Oh, and make sure you tell ’em Arden from Scoop the Lake sent you. You’ll get the family discount of 10%. I’ll be out there Christmas Eve working too. A few of the folks may have birthed me.
