Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project Farm Tours – are happening September 21st and 22nd. Hickory Nut Gap will be one stop along the way. Don’t miss your chance to get a full tour of the farm from Owner, Jamie Ager. Tours will be going on all afternoon from 1pm until 5pm. The day’s festivities will also include free samples of some of our beef, pork, and chicken products, and the opportunity to shop in the farmstore after the tour. Cost for the ASAP farm tours is $25 per carload for the entire weekend. If you wish to access Hickory Nut Gap admission areas after the tour we are still charging regular admission for access to the rest of the farm activities.
If you’ve never been on a Hickory Nut Gap tour before, you’ll learn a little history, a little biology, and a whole lot about cows. You’ll get the full scoop on how we run our farm and what we’re passionate about. You will also have a chance to ask any questions you may have about our meat and our farming practices. Tours will last roughly 45 minutes and you should be sure to bring close-toed shoes and comfortable walking attire. The Local Joint, a down home Fairview eatery, will be selling hot meals for those who fancy a bit to eat as well.
Sorry for any confusion about the April date that appeared here earlier. May 18th is the new official date for the Open House. If you’ve been telling yourself for months that you need to make it out the farm but you just haven’t had the time or found the right occasion, look no further. We are having an Open House on May 18th at the farm, which is located at 57 Sugar Hollow Rd. in Fairview. The event also includes a Farm Tour at 3pm and free samples!
Come check out our farmstore where you can buy fresh 100% grassfed beef, pastured pork and poultry, plus tons of other local food and craft items. Go on the Farm Tour with Jamie Ager and romp around the farm to see how we raise our animals and learn about our vision as a farm and local business. Try some of our cured pork and fresh cooked meats. No need to reserve a space or rsvp, just come on out and enjoy a little springtime on the farm. Hope to see you soon!
Just don’t have time to drive all the way out Fairview? Come visit us at our farmer’s market venues. We will be selling our products on Saturdays at the North Asheville Market on the campus of UNCA and at Asheville City Market, which is located at 161 South Charlotte Street in the parking lot of the Public Works Building. We’ll also be at the West Asheville Market on Tuesdays. Hope to see you there!
