We are also a small Western North Carolina farm brewery that is taking craft 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!
We are also 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!
