About Hickory Nut Gap

We are continuing a 100-year-old mission to build community through agriculture. Just a short, scenic 20 minute drive from Asheville, NC and 30 minutes from Black Mountain, the Farm Store is a great way to see first hand the landscape where your food is grown and to meet the people who make it happen. At Hickory Nut Gap Farm you will find animals raised in their natural environment. Pigs outdoors, cows on pasture eating grass and clover, multiple species grazing together, drinking fresh spring water and living the good life. We offer grassfed beef and pastured pork, free range eggs and have pastured poultry available seasonally. You'll find many local food treasures such as Lusty Monk Mustard, Fire on the Mountain's BBQ sauce, Looking Glass Creamery Cheese, Haw Creek Honey and Imladris Farm Jam. Discover the craft of Maria Pritchard's jewelry and Farmer Jane's goat milk soap among other local pottery and handmade crafts! Come see for yourself the food and crafts from our area. Pick up a few gifts, treat yourself to some breakfast sausage and don't forget your camera. Come visit the baby animals, play on our culvert slides, splash in the creek, or go on a nature hike. Our farm is open to the public and a wonderful family experience. In the fall months, we are proud to offer a full list of fall festivities including hay rides, corn maze, pumpkin patch, kiddie carts, fresh pressed apple cider and more. In our HNG Kitchen we serve lunch 7 days a week from 11-4pm. In Jan-March, we are closed Mondays and Tuesdays. We offer Sunday brunch from 10-4. We are also offering kitchen and butchery classes, as well as event catering and event site hosting.
