”People are realizing that their health is based in part on what they’re eating, and they understand the benefits of what we’re doing here.”
Farmer, Broken Oak Organics at The Cliffs
Just 15 minutes from Asheville is a 60-acre, 100-year-old working farm that feels worlds away. Creekside Farm is home to over 300 varieties of heirloom vegetables, herbs and flowers, as well as free-roaming chickens and two friendly donkeys. At the heart of the farm is a historic barn where neighbors gather to share the bounty of the land and catch up on tasty news from the garden.

Even before planting for a new season begins, Craig Weiner, sits down with the chefs from each of our seven communities.
“We basically start with the seed catalogs and decide exactly what they want us to grow. And the chefs are all here often as the season progresses. They are not afraid to get their hands dirty. They are all very involved.”
“As a chef, I appreciate that most of what is grown at the farm is heirloom. I believe you find a richer, deeper, more consistent flavor in heirloom products. That’s what the farm produces — and one of the reasons it’s so important to us.”
