About Hickory Nut Gap

At Hickory Nut Gap, we believe that the best-tasting and most nutritious meats come from healthy animals, humanely raised on high-quality pasture. Since 1916, we have been building community through agriculture. We offer 100% grassfed beef, pasture raised pork, and pasture raised chickens. We currently work with family farms throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Kentucky. We also raise animals on our farm in Fairview, NC. Normally the farm is open to the public year-round, however with COVID-19 things are running a little differently. Our kitchen is temporarily closed until further notice. At our Farm Store in Fairview, we are currently open Thursday - Sunday from 1pm - 4pm for curbside pickup only. All orders must be placed online. In our online store, you will find our beef, pork, and chicken, as well as locally produced grocery and craft items.
