An old red schoolhouse has been re-purposed as the Creekside Farm Education Center, and is The Hub of our neighborhood, a place for farm-to-table meals, events like the Fall Harvest Festival, cooking classes and nutrition courses from local professionals.
Sometimes it's easy to forget that you're 5 minutes from Biltmore Park and 20 minutes from Downtown Asheville.

Creekside Farm at Walnut Cove
When you find yourself surrounded by nature, you'll find that you're happier, healthier, and closer to peace.
Look out your window, see the flowers bloom, the vegetables grow, and the two miniature donkey's (Darla and Pedro) chase each other through the pasture.
A farmer can't teach you about rocket science. But they can show you the miracle that is growing food, creating life. Come and harvest knowledge.
Join us for fascinating classes held typically at the Education Center.
There is a beauty in nature. It's in the flavors of our produce, the colors of our flowers, and the tranquility of the rolling hills and babbling streams. Stop, breathe, and take it all in.
Bite into a tomato grown in your own neighborhood. We'll handle everything else.
