'Our Tiny Farm' is a small family farm in Etowah, NC (near Hendersonville). We have grown wholesome food for our family on this farm for over thirteen years. We pasture raise Black Angus cattle for great tasting beef and keep bees for honey. We grow vegetables, garlic, popcorn, and a few herbs. We also board horses and have several adorable mini-donkeys.
We grow our food as naturally as we can. For our gardens, we use only aged manure, cover crops, compost, natural fertilizers, and pest control products (OMRI approved). We do not use synthetic herbicides or pesticides in the gardens. Our animals are grass-pasture raised, fed locally grown hay (carefully selected to avoid persistent herbicides) and given a very little locally produced commercial feed (no hormones or antibiotics) to keep them "trained to a bucket" so they will come when we call. We are a very tiny farm and won't ever have products in large volumes to sell, but we sell what we have at the tailgate market and directly from the farm. Please contact us to learn about availability.
As professional horticulturists and educators who have spent our careers advising others on how to make a living off the land, it is a challenge and a joy to be "practicing what we preach" by generating some income by raising good food and caring for the land.
UPDATE March 26, 2014: We are currently sold out of beef. Our young Black Angus steers grew well over the winter and are enjoying the new green grass coming in with the warmer weather. The garlic and shallots look great and we will be planting potatoes and leeks soon. We look daily for the first signs of asparagus in our expanded beds. We hope to have enough to take to market this year. The bee hives also came through the winter looking very strong so there will be honey available later on.
