This photographic farmland of Buncombe County is located approximately 11 miles southeast of Asheville, North Carolina. Home to the Hickory Nut Gap Farm, a local, family farm focused on sustainability that has been serving the Asheville area since 1916. You will recognize the name from the grass fed beef selections that adorn menus all over Western North Carolina.
Open fields, surrounded by the rolling Appalachians will have you recalling memories from childhood visits to farms or dreaming of your own spacious land.
