We are a family of 4 living our dreams in the Appalachian mountains of Western North Carolina. In 2015 we left Auburn, Alabama (our hometown of 15+ years!) to start our small farm on just a few acres outside Burnsville, NC. Our goals are to live simply, learn quickly, and live the life we love.
Over the last few years we have tried LOTS of things! We have grown vegetables, herbs, and berries, as well as planting fruit trees for future production. We have raised a variety of heritage breed chickens for both eggs and meat, heritage breed rabbits for meat and fiber, and tried both ducks and geese as well. We’ve hosted farm tours, workshops, and taken part in the Mother Earth News Fair, Southeastern Animal Fiber Festival, and Blue Ridge Fiber Festival. We made some big changes in 2017-18 by adding Bengal cats and selling all our rabbits and waterfowl. We have also grown our small hatchery in recent years and had our busiest hatching season ever in 2020! There’s never a dull moment here on the farm!
