  • We kept seeing signs for the farm on our drives around the area. Fresh cider, meats, cider pops. So on our way out of town we stopped in. They had a very nice set up just off the main road. As we walk...  read more »

  • My wife and I visited their live music event tonight for the first time. We loved it. Such a peaceful, beautiful place. The bluegrass band played in a large converted barn, and we ate dinner in here as well. The BBQ pork, corn on the cob, potato salad was all delicious. I was familiar with their meat products before visiting, but didn't realize they had such a cool event on Friday evenings. Different musicians every week, and plenty of things to keep kids busy with slides and playground areas. We will be back... Oh, and the ice cream in the country store was awesome!
  • This is one of the places to go touring around if you're a visitor to Asheville. They do birthday parties, horse riding, classes and workshops, and of course they have a store full of their wares. It is expensive, but they are considered the highest quality of meats and products here in Asheville, and any resident here will tell you HNG is the place to get stunning jerky, meats, etc. I live about 20 minutes from there and buying pigs in bulk is reallllly reasonably priced from them, much lower costs than other butcheries around the area which surprised me. If you're doing a big cook out, you can get amazing meat for pretty cheap buying in bulk via special orders. They also state their prices right on their website, which I appreciate a lot. I just ordered some of their chunky farm pate and it was incredible. They have a cafe and some really awesome ice cream (including bacon maple ice cream with their delicious bacon right in it) as well. In the summers they do Friday night barn dances. There is a lot to do here, and it's all well away from downtown. On the way there, stop by Flying Cloud Farms and check out their honor-system produce stand on the side of the road.
  • Had a delicious meal! Loved the place
  • Great farm with great roots.
  • We visited HNG Farms October 2012, after a morning trip to the Biltmore estate. I could have skipped the estate altogether and would have been happy with just the farm. It's super inexpensive ($8 per person), has several things to do, great food and fantastic photo ops. The staff was very friendly, and the swing in the hay loft is a blast! (especially if you are a former country kid who lives in the city now) I would highly recommend HNG Farms.
