About Flying Cloud Farm

We are growing food sustainably in a beautiful valley on a family farm in Fairview. Our farming practices rely on cover cropping, amending the soil carefully, crop rotation, using OMRI approved products and planning for insect and weed issues. We value our personal relationship with our customers through the tailgate markets and our CSA.

CSA

Members purchase a share of the season’s harvest in advance. Half or full shares as well market style shares. For 20 weeks, mid-May to the end of Sep., we provide a box of freshly harvested produce from our farm. Contents vary as the seasons change and different produce ripens. We include an email each week with recipes and cooking ideas. We also have an extended season CSA for 8 weeks up to Thanksgiving. Another option for folks is a market share; people purchase a credit amount, we give them an additional 15% of produce, they can spend the credit at any market or our farm stand through the season.

Pick Up Spots

Pick up: Asheville City Market, River Arts District Farmers Market, North Asheville Market, and at the farm.
