We are a small family farm growing heirloom vegetables, Blackberries, Strawberries and Persimmon. We are a certified nursery and have potted berry plants in the spring and fall as well as some vegetable bedding plants. We use no synthetic pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Our hens are fed organic layer feed and get to roam all of the farm, minus the garden area! You will find our eggs and produce at the Black Mountain Tailgate Market, and in our Year-round CSA shares. My husband is a leather smith and we offer his handcrafted leather goods: handbags, cell phone holders, possible bags, belts, dog collars, growler/wine carriers, bridles, saddlebags, and much more. My husband does custom work and repairs as well. He also makes handcrafted ceremonial hand-held rawhide drums, 2-sided drums, and Lodge drums. If you would like to make your own drum we welcome you into a workshop which takes one afternoon for a completed drum! We welcome guests to our farm and studio by appointment, after the pandemic recedes. If you are interested in a CSA share all year round please contact us. Our Winter Multi farm CSA's are wonderful as it supports so many McDowell County and Buncombe County farmers who produce year round.
For our CSA pick up at our farm we follow all of the CDC guidelines. We have a circle driveway and one car at a time drives to our table. We place their share on the table and then stand back for them to pick it up. We keep a box on the table for cash, self-serving, with sanitizer available. All wear masks. We also take credit cards on line or can swipe.
