Our Farm has an unique combination of offerings, rarely found all together in one place! There are edible, medicinal, culinary, flower and native plant gardens, an orchard, streams and ponds, hardwood forests, hiking trails, an event studio and dining room, private yoga or bodywork sessions, educational opportunities, vegetarian farm, and lodging for both long and short-term residents!!!

Veritas Lodge rental includes an open space studio and dining room as well as a state of the art kitchen. It opens onto a large lawn space and community fire circle, to hold open air events if you choose. This leads to the mile long nature trail and multiple edible, medicinal and ornamental gardens. We offer organic produce for your event as well.

We have several ecosystems to explore from gardens, to fields, streams, overlooks, forests, orchards, green-built structures, and there’s birding, too!

The deep and long-term ecological footprint we have consciously created on this land, being a well-established organic farm in the area for over 50 years, is evident in the diversity of life here.

Relish the gardens and trails during your stay and immerse yourself in a plant paradise. There is a mile long nature trail loop called the Frank Cook Nature Trail, available for guests to walk, and a hearty hike for those who don’t mind steep trails – with an amazing view of the Blue Ridge Mountains (and the sunset if timed right) at the top of Onion Rock.

And we are away from the city, but not a far drive from it! Herb Mountain Farm is a 25 minute drive from Asheville, NC.

The Venue

There are folding chairs, tables and cushions available so that you can choose how to use the space. A library of a wide range of books awaits you. It is connected to a patio with a large lawn and fire circle that leads right up to the Frank Cook Nature Trail. You could hold your event inside or out, whatever is most appropriate for the day!
