Organic Gardens & Orchards

Organic & Locally Grown Food

Healthy, Locally Grown, Organic Foods and Produce

Grow your own organic vegetables, pick local apples, plums, grapes, pears, peaches, and cherries; buy local free-range eggs and meats or join a CSA and get organic veggies all season long.

Local Community Gardens

We have created an organic community garden open to all community members to grow their own organic vegetables and flowers.

Heirloom Apple Orchards

We have an heirloom orchard with 75 old-time apple trees. There are three varieties of apples, plus a small vineyard of heirloom grapes. We have increased the variety of fruit trees by planting cherry, plum, pear, peach, citrus and almond trees. Every fall we hold our annual apple u-pick day.

Flying Cloud Farm

Less than 10 minutes away in Fairview is Flying Cloud Farm with many varieties of organic vegetables, fruits and flowers. Here you can join a CSA (community supported agriculture) and get regular orders of organic vegetables and flowers in season.

Hickory Nut Gap Farm

Our neighbors up the gorge at Hickory Nut Gap provide organic chicken, pork and eggs.
