Come on by for the opening of Warren Wilson’s brand new retail and community space on the iconic and beautiful College Farm! When the Asheville Farm School opened its doors 130 years ago, ethical stewardship of the land, service to community and access to education were all core values. These core values persist at the College today and are among the guiding principles of The Center for Working Lands. The store will be stocking all of our quality meat products, fresh vegetables, and items made by our Craft Crews and independent student makers. Our full line of Forest and Herb Crew products including teas, salves and tinctures will be available as well as coffee from our local partner Dynamite Coffee Company and College Farm memorabilia. The day will include tours of the College Farm, yard games, cute animals and live music so bring the whole family and relax with us in the beautiful Swannanoa Valley. Everyone who joins us will be entered into a raffle to win a choice of either an assorted meat package or an assortment of herbal and forest products.
The Farm School General Store will be open Saturdays, 10:00am – 2:00pm and will provide a space for the community to learn about opportunities to get involved with the College through workshops, lectures and demonstrations focused on the role of working lands in creating and protecting a vibrant and sustainable Western North Carolina.
