Where else can you see bees in action! Come view our bee observatory located in the barn, learn about bees and understand the vital role they play in our local food economy. Long time beekeeper, Greg Rogers of Haw Creek Honey, has provided the hive to help educate folks about raising bees and the production of honey in WNC. Appreciate all the work these insects do so we can enjoy a little honey on our biscuits! Haw Creek Honey offers both its Sourwood and Mountain Wildflower honey harvests for sale in our farm store.

We can help with that! Order ahead by emailing jamie@hickorynutgapfarm.com

Farm Works. Hickory Nut Gap Farm celebrates our resident artist Jessica Lynn, with an exhibition of her recent works inspired by the mountains of Western North Carolina and life on the farm. Opening Reception (all invited) at the Farm Store on Friday, September 3rd from 5-8pm. The show “Farm Works” which include 11 pieces done with oils on plywood will be on exhibition through the end of October.

Most farmers plant their corn in May with fresh sweet corn just around the corner and field corn rising above the average six foot man’s head at this point in the season. Our corn is just going in today as we hope that the ever lingering thunder and lightening may actually produce a drop or two of water to swell our seed into germination. Getting our corn in the ground in late June helps keep it nice and green as our maze goers find their way through the corn maze this fall. If all goes well the plan is green corn stalks until mid October just before the first frost.
We’ve opened up some new ground over in the Arrowhead Pasture which will extend the maze to be a little bigger than last year and get the ground ready for future crops. For now we are focusing on getting the corn and pumpkin seeds in the ground before the end of the week so we can all enjoy each others company this fall over a crisp apple and a carving pumpkin in tow.

We’ve been printing the same farm t-shirt for over four years now. There must be at least 2000 of them out there in the world with a critical mass in Asheville for sure. Sport your Hickory Nut Gap Farm t-shirt at Asheville City Market or the North Asheville Tailgate Market this weekend July 3rd and receive a free pack of ground beef. You never know when an extra neighbor may show up at your Fourth of July cookout! If you don’t have one yet….come on by the farm store, we’ll still give you a free pack of ground beef.

Over 250 visitors came by the farm on Sunday to see horses plowing, participate in cooking lessons, play in the shade of the creek, eat locally grown blackberry ice cream, ride on a pony, watch a blacksmithing demonstration and much much more. Many thanks to Park Ridge Hospital who provided chili, cornbread and hospitality for the event. Thinking this should be an annual event?
