 Our approach to farming is a sustainable one. We use a combination of cover crops, beneficial insects, crop rotation and organic approved applications to grow our food. We believe strong soil grows strong plants, therefore we always invest organic nutrients back into the soil each season. We have no interest in applying anything toxic to our plants or our fields and we never use any chemical pesticides or fertilizers.

Currently providing wholesale delivery to restaurants in Asheville and suppling Foothills Food Hub with food for the people.  

Exciting new things in store this year!  U Pick flowers are in your future.  Maybe an honor system stand at the farm?
