ABOUT US

OUR MISSION

Blue Meadow Farms' mission is to grow produce that tastes great and is good for you. A simple mission, yet one that ultimately has a profound impact on our health, the communities in which we live, and the environment we sustain for future generations. Eating well really does mean living well.

THE FARM
The farm is located in Hendersonville, just 15 miles south of Asheville, North Carolina. We grow our produce using organic and sustainable practices. We do not believe in the use of non-organic synthetic or chemical fertilizers, insecticides, pesticides, or herbicides. We practice crop rotation and use as much organic and/or heirloom seeds as possible.
For the 2015 season, our sixth season in production, we are farming 6 acres out of our 10+ acres. We strive to serve our customers with fresh vegetables picked within hours from harvest. We believe our produce freshness is one that no grocery store produce can compete with. With growing demands for quality produce, our farm hopes to continue to satisfy the greater Asheville and Hendersonville area’s needs for local produce.

With the ambition to highlight the best the good earth has to offer, the Blue Meadow Farms family looks forward to sharing our fourth harvest season with you.
