Au programme

We will meet in the barnyard and our first stop will be the goat barn where we will pet, interact with and learn about the goats! Along the way, we’ll learn about permaculture, regenerative agricture and how we restored the farm to working condition. Next, we will see the cheese house/milking parlor and cheese cave and talk about cheesemaking and aging cheese. After we will interact with chickens and rabbits and learn how they coexist. Finally we will end with samples of some products that we make right here on the farm including cheese, scones, fresh jams and more! We also provide picnic baskets to have a picnic after the tour. Message for more details!

Welcome to Mt. Gilead Farm, a full working farm just 20 minutes outside of Asheville. We are primarily a goat farm, but also have chickens, rabbits, sheep, horses and geese. Having spent every day of the past two and a half years learning about and implementing the practices of regenerative farming, we are now thrilled to share what we’ve learned with you on this hands-on, animal-centric walking tour. As the farm manager here at Mt. Gilead, I care for all of our animals, and facilitate their interactions with the land. If you want to learn about the newest movements in farming and enjoy playing with lots of friendly animals, this is the tour for you! (Plus cheese and homemade goodies at the end!)

This experience was unbelievable! The location is absolutely stunning, the family is amazingly sweet and welcoming, and the tour was very enjoyable. My wife and I cannot wait to go back and experience it again. If you happen to be in Asheville, do yourself a favor and take advantage of this experience. You will not be disappointed!

Visiting Mt. Gilead Farm was the highlight of my trip. If you have any interesting in knowing where food comes from or farming you should check this place out. Their farm was such a good example of what modern day small farming looks like. They were incredibly hospitable hosts and made us feel at home and welcome on their land. I had a fabulous time and would go back or support them any time!

A really wonderful family offering an educational tour of their farm. We got to hug their goats, learn about all the animals on their farm and try the goat cheese at the end. Definitely would recommend!

We took our two kids, ages 10 and 7, and had a great time. The hike up the mountain to pet the goats was the favorite of the kids, and the delicious cheese, biscuits, and cider were the most enjoyed by the adults! Beautiful, fall family-friendly activity!

This experience gave a wonderful snapshot of a small farm life. My husband loved getting to be close and personal with the goats, chickens and sheep. Zachariah's mom was an absolute angel, the biscuits and crepes were excellent! I don't normally eat crepes but hers were delicious! At the end of the tour you have the opportunity to purchase their products made on the farm which was great. We got the homemade soaps, jam and eggs. So glad we ended up taking this opportunity. Tip: you are going to a farm with animals, so be dressed accordingly. Wear shoes that may have to walk over mud and clothing you don't mind goats trying to nibble on. Not that my clothing or bag got damaged, but it was certainly was in a goat's mouth.

What a fun and informative morning at the farm! We loved the history and overview of farming shared by Zach. It was a beautiful farm and the animals were a hit! Our bellies were happy too- delicious homemade goat cheese and crepes!
