Welcome to Mountain Harvest Organics
Mountain Harvest Organics is a small family farm located in the Spring Creek community of Madison County in Western North Carolina. The farm has been in production for over 150 years and is nestled in a valley shadowed by beautiful Bluff Mountain over which the Appalachian Trail passes. Spring Creek is located about an hours drive from either Asheville or Waynesville, and just 20 minutes outside of the beautiful Appalachian trail town of Hot Springs.
We serve the Asheville and Waynesville area with fresh, organic produce from early May thorough November. We also serve the residents of our Spring Creek community through our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program.
Our farm has 13 acres of tillable land with 5 acres currently in production, which allows us to grow a broad assortment of fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs. Previously we were a certified organic farm through Carolina Farm Stewardship Association, but have since dropped our certification because of our direct relationship with our customers who know us and our farming practices. We continue to follow the standards put in place by the National Organic Program (NOP) but have chosen not to complete the paperwork and inspections required by the program. We are trying to combine permaculture techniques with our organic farming practices to ensure that we create a habitat, which will attract and support wildlife all the while growing as much healthy food on our small acreage as is possible.
We support the Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project (ASAP) which is a Western North Carolina community-based collaborative focused on sustaining farms and rural communities through an integrated action programs. This organization has been instrumental in helping bring awareness to the availability of local food in Western North Carolina.
We grow food and raise our animals using sustainable farming practices. We have been offering farming apprenticeships/internships in Western North Carolina for about a decade. Become a part of the farming community while enjoying the Asheville, Waynesville and Hot Springs area of North Carolina in learning the craft of farming by applying for our apprenticeship/internship position. We are currently accepting applications for our 2017 growing season.
