Sideways is a small family run flower farm with fresh seasonal bouquets available in our shop, a flower CSA membership, and a u-pick flower farm open Friday - Sundays! During the week we open the farm for groups and DIY bridal parties by reservation. We use nothing synthetic on our farm. Instead we nurture our flowers with compost, natural minerals, and encourage soil microbiology, leaving you with beautiful blooms that are safe to stick your nose in and inhale deeply! We are also a small Western North Carolina farm brewery that is taking the craft of brewing back to its agricultural roots. To a time when farmers grew their own ingredients and would craft fine artisan ales by hand, giving them a unique sense of time and place. At Sideways Farm & Brewery it's about being small and agile, using what local ingredients we have during the season they are available. It's about coexisting with nature and our surroundings. It's about building friendships and community. We're easy to get to from Asheville, Hendersonville, and Brevard, and only 15 minutes from Pisgah and DuPont Forests!

Fresh picked bouquets available in season at our farm brewery!
In addition to our small brewery and tasting room: visitors can tour our farm where we grow a portion of the hops, barley, herbs, and heirloom produce for our artisanal ales; enjoy picking buckets of seasonal fresh flowers; or visit our goats, sheep, ducks and chickens.
We have online ordering with no-touch curbside pickup for both our beer and flower bouquets/buckets (and occasionally eggs and honey depending on the supply).
We request customers to wear masks inside and while walking around the farm. We have added several canopy covers over our picnic tables which are spread out around the brewery to encourage safe and comfortable outdoor seating, indoor seating has been greatly reduced. We've even added some Sideways on draft served outdoors for those that don't want to come indoors.
We've been pretty slow in terms of u-pick flowers, but if things pick up we are prepared to offer u-pick by appointment. We do currently request weekday appointments for small groups (like bridal parties) to have the flower field to themselves.
We do have 6' markings on the floor, separate entry and exit doors, hand sanitizer stations, and have touchless apple pay.
