* We enJOY sharing our little 1.5 acre Quiet Sanctuary & Eco-Farmstead.

We are in the Smoky Mountains which is surrounded by Appalachian Mountain Views and Pigeon Valley Pastures!

We practice Organic, Hydroponic, Aquaponic and Permaculture methods seasonally.

Located out in the countryside of East Haywood County just 20 miles of West Asheville.

Close enough to Downtown Asheville but far enough away from the city lights to really relax and watch the stars. 

* Truly We are Nothing fancy... Just Peaceful*

With Animals and Gardens comes a bit of dust and mayhem.

We like to stay tuned in with Mother Nature and her tapestry of seasons!

We are an ongoing work-in-process Eco-Farmstead.

We do have a few remodeling projects going on but it does not interfere with renters.

Guests are welcome to join and assist us with hands-on learning to maintain our gardens,

farm animals and food preservation in the farm kitchen.

Farmstead Residents are Young 40's folks that welcome all walks of life to this rich yet simple farmstead life.

Resident Farm Dog is a socialized Rescue Border Collie Mix that loves people and all animals!
