Appalachian Farm and Mountain Trail Ride
Ride. Restore. (Re)connect. Picture yourself meandering through the idyllic, mountain-framed grounds of a historic 300-acre farm and forest located in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The property is cradled in a pastoral valley with wooded mountains and a bubbling creek, and is home to some of the most stunning flora and fauna in the Eastern US such as goldenseal and spring ephemerals like trillium, violet, and ramps. Our trails wind over hilly oak savannah and gradually climb through mature hardwood groves near the border of Pisgah National Forest. Discover the special relationship between trees and trout, identify wildflowers and other plants and animals, and immerse yourself in an outdoor adventure that will engage all five senses. The 90 minute horseback ride takes place on the Evans family farm in rural Barnardsville, NC. Lovingly referred to as “The Dairy,” the farm was in operation from the 1930s until 2008 and has a history almost as beguiling as the land it’s on. (To boot: it used to sell milk to the famous Biltmore Estate!) We will begin the trail ride by getting to know each other and our horses. After that, we will briefly explore the ins and outs of horseback riding. Whether you’re a seasoned rider or first-timer, a kid or a retiree, it doesn’t matter; anyone can do it. Then we’ll be off, gaining 200 feet of elevation and a lifetime of memories.

Appalachian Kitchen Witchery
Let's gather together as we journey into the past of Appalachian culture and healing, where many groups of people came together to create a unique community and practices out of a hard way of living that was resourceful, magical and full of faith. Granny witches and folk healers were born in those days, a legacy and tradition that continues to thrive in the mountains and valleys of Western North Carolina. Today they are brewing and cooking up healing remedies grown and foraged from the rich bounty of Southern Appalachia, where magic is always afoot and woven deeply into everyday life. We will create our own herbal medicines using plants in season, fashion protection talismans and bundles to protect what means most to us, talk about what magic and witch truly mean in this community, and how we can take a bit of Appalachia home with us.
