ROADSIDE INFORMATION

A small farmers market and farm store that is nestled right next to an oasis-like view of the Tuckaseegee River. This place offers a wide selection of local grown items that are brought in so fresh, that they are often still warm from the sun. Come in and get fresh ice cream, fresh picked vegetables for a healthy dinner, and bring back a piece of Great Smoky Mountains Agriculture.

Our store is open from March 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018.
