Our Outdoor Venue has unique combinations 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, outdoor event space, residential and learning community private yoga or bodywork sessions and educational opportunities- all on a 50-plus year established organic farm!!!

*Note_ We are undergoing changes with our rental and are no longer offering indoor facilities for rent. Website is in process of being updated.

Veritas 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.
