A two+ acre pond is ready for canoeing, sitting and enjoying watching herons and a variety of birds, or feeding the resident Mallards. There are miles of hiking trails in the woods on this 50-acre property, from moderate to strenuous. An additional highlight is that this is a small working farm, with various crops growing in season and a small French Alpine dairy goat herd. Our six does are due to kid in late March through early May . Here is a link to You Tube if you would like to see some previous baby kids in action. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2qNdK2Ffyk&feature=channel_pageThe goats names are Honus, Heidi (the Mom), Raven (The black baby), Tristen (the Gray baby) and Starling.
We love dogs! Well-behaved dogs are welcome on the farm, and may run on the trails unleashed. Since dogs can frighten goats, they must be on leash in the pasture. Dog bowls, a medium dog bed, and treats are provided. Crates are available on request.
You may bring a maximum of two dogs. Our pet fee is by the pound, with a maximum fee of $75 for one dog and $100 for two.
Located in Fairview, only 11 miles southeast of downtown Asheville (6 miles from Asheville city limits) and 6 miles from I-40 and the Blue Ridge Parkway, this private residence is in the country, yet very convenient to the many attractions of the area, including the Biltmore Estate, Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, and (of course) the mountains with their spectacular views, waterfalls, and tourist attractions. Every season has its gifts, from summer festivals and craft fairs to fall color, winter holidays at the Biltmore House, and spring blossoms.
