About Daffodil Spring Farm

Daffodil Spring Farm is a small-scale farm located in the Valle Crucis community of Watauga County. We raise pastured pork that is Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World and root crop vegetables. Daffodil Spring Farm practices regenerative agriculture, growing food that is good for the land, animals, and our community. Farmed by Dave Walker, Daffodil Spring Farm complements his local-food system work with Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture and his passion for growing toward a just future. The name of the farm comes from the daffodils that show before our last snow. They're hopeful and tell us that the mountains will soon be green again, full of new vibrant colors. Certifications: Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World since 2017. Daffodil Spring Farm practices regenerative agriculture and holistic land management. This means that pigs are frequently rotated every few weeks to fresh grass. What the pigs have rooted up is sowed with a cover crop mixture of buckwheat and red clover in the spring and summer and winter rye in the fall, building our soil and providing food for the animals. Beginning in the summer of 2019, Daffodil Spring Farm purchased a sow from Never Ending Farm and became a closed herd, raising Tamworth-Hereford-cross pigs and Berkshire-cross pigs. The pigs are fed a GMO-free pig feed diet, by hand, twice a day when they are young and have a free-choice feeder when they are older. There is always fresh, clean water available and ample room for them to root and graze. Feeding them by hand, allows me to assure that they remain healthy and makes them easier to work with and better natured. Daffodil Spring Farm also grows potatoes without the use of synthetic pesticides and herbicides.
