Welcome to Ochre Hill Farms
We are passionate about providing fresh, high-quality, nutritious food products that are locally grown right here in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Mountain farming is different, given the rough terrain and unpredictable growing seasons. For generations, farming has provided food for survival. Our roots run deep, as our family has lived and farmed in Western North Carolina since first settling here in the 1700s. We are passionate about our agricultural heritage and we want to share it with you! We start our produce from seed and nurture the plants through every stage of growth to ensure you receive only the highest quality local products possible.
What We Grow
Tomatoes, Squash, Peppers & More! Find us at local markets or contact us for custom orders.
Calming and Beautiful! We offer a variety of lavender products year round and fresh blooms when in season.
Our newest expansion includes seven blueberry varieties, elderberries and ligonberries.
Where are we located?
Ochre Hill Farms is located off the Great Smoky Mountain Expressway between Waynesville and Sylva, North Carolina at the base of the Balsam Mountains. We sell our produce and other products at a variety of local markets and can arrange pick-up for seasonal produce orders as well. We do not offer tours at this time, but encourage you to visit the pages of our site for photos!
"Agriculture is our wisest pursuit, because it will in the end contribute most to real wealth, good morals, and happiness."
