Welcome to this hub for information about products and projects connected with our homestead farm on Hap Mountain, in western North Carolina. 

Our farm is a long-term effort to find ways that humans can live well while enriching rather than depleting our natural life-support system. We aim to increase the health and biodiversity of our farm and its surrounding woods, while ensuring that both wildlife and domesticated animals live well here. We also support efforts beyond our farm to transition to just and more-sustainable ways of living everywhere.     


We still keep chickens, still feed them without soy or GMOs, and sell some of their delicious eggs to the Laurel River Store, located where the Laurel River meets the road from Hot Springs to Marshall, and at Sara Jo's Gas Station in downtown Hot Springs.

We also sell our eggs through Patchwork Alliance's online market, with weekly deliveries in and around Asheville.


In addition to our eggs, we sell a few other herbal goods from our farm, currently including dried jiaogulan for your morning tea, a nightly wellness tea blend, our Hardworking Hand Salve, and two herbal lip balms, Plain Good and longtime customer favorite Soft Red. Click here to shop for these goods online at Patchwork's online market.

Patchwork Alliance is a GREAT way to support western NC growers and makers of just about everything you need: Buy a box of goods from your choice of local farms, dairies, artisans, beekeepers, herbalists, and more. Boxes are delivered weekly to locations in and around Asheville.


Our Feed Buyers Group enables small farms and homesteads to combine orders for bags of no-GMO livestock feed and supplements, giving us large-order, direct-from-the-mill discounts on feed and shipping. Our discount is typically 1/3 or more off the retail price of comparable feed. Please click here for more information.
