About Smallholding Farm

Daniel and Ellie practice minimal-to-no-till agriculture and take great effort to nourish living soil. Adding in a variety of compost and mulches into their beds rejuvenates their land and makes for extra delicious and nutrient-dense vegetables. Smallholding values quality, customer transparency, ease of connection for produce, and ecologically sound land stewardship.
What started as a quarter-acre plot in Alexander, North Carolina, is now a 1.5-2 acre production in Morganton, NC. While the land continues to grow, the teams intentions and goals for the farm stay true to each other and the surrounding communities values.

Smallholding Farm is the culmination of almost thirty years of passion for agriculture, first found on Daniel Bryant’s grandparents' farm as a young child. Through an unrelenting work ethic and a natural penchant for growing good food, Smallholding was officially born in the spring of 2020. While Daniel focused on the land, Ellie saw the potential this farm had for supplying and supporting the local community with rich produce. She focused on finding small restaurants, local markets, and CSA customers interested in our produce, and doing some behind the scenes work to bring this garden to life! Smallholding Farm is a blend of dreamers looking to support one another's ideas and intentions for the farm.

2022 CSA Sign-Up Information Hey Folks! Spring is around the corner, and we are excited to tell you about our spring/summer CSA! For those of you who are new to the concept, CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Smallholding Farm values the importance of sharing locally grown produce with the Asheville community. We love sharing recipes, giving weekly updates, and including photos of what is happening on our end, and we love seeing what you all create on your end! This gives us the opportunity to create a community centered around regenerative agricultural practices. We feel passionate about putting good food into the hands of our neighbors. If you're interested, please consider if a CSA box is the best method of supporting our farm for you. A CSA is a weekly commitment throughout the spring and summer season. It will offer produce that is in line with what grows best in our climate and during these next two seasons. If you are away a lot in the summer or have very specific dietary restrictions/sensitivities, our markets and grocery store options may be a stronger fit for you, as you have more control over what produce you will get. Here is how it works! 1 size share available. One box will include 7-10 items per week at a $30 - $35 value. We do not offer substitutions unless you have an allergy. Price - $30 a week to be paid each Sunday prior to receiving your box. The email we send each week will continue to remind you of our weekly payment methods. If you would like to pay in full, please let us know. Delivery - $7 a week, $37 total. Please let us know if you would like this option. We will deliver to your house on the same day each week. The price has increased a tad, due to the increased weekly mileage. Please consider picking up at our free pick-up locations. ​ Pick-up locations - Our pick-up locations will include each market we are at (TBD: East Asheville and Morganton Farmers Market). We are also in the process of finding one more pick-up spot in the week close to AVL/Mills River, keep you all posted! We have 30 shares available. - CSA begins the week of May 1st and ends the week of October 1st (22 weeks). We have pushed the start day back, as well as the end date to increase summer and early fall produce for you all! You will receive: - A secure box each week. - First priority on early harvest items and specialty items before they hit the markets and grocery stores. - 10% off additional farmers market purchases at our booth. Good Faith Clause: We want to be transparent when we say, as farmers, we work with mother nature. That being said, some things are out of our control, such as weather and certain loss of crops. We hope that by supporting our CSA, you will join with good faith that Smallholding Farm will work very hard to continuously provide you with produce, with the promise that you continue to show you support by paying the weekly fee. Because boxes are limited, please email us at [email protected] to notify us that you are interested and committed to joining and we will get back to you shortly.
