Join us for a scenic tour of SAHC’s Community Farm on a guided hike led by Engagement and Education AmeriCorps member, Katie Greer. Participants will hike along the The Discovery Trail, a 2.5-mile loop that traverses through the forests and fields of the farm. Along the way, we may encounter the resident Scottish Highland cow herd, Texas longhorn cattle, white-tailed deer, red-tailed hawks, and more as we make our way across the farm grounds.

Our 140-acre Community Farm, located just outside of Asheville, is a dynamic hub for conservation projects and agricultural initiatives. An ideal place for photographers, nature-lovers, and individuals interested in regenerative agriculture, our stream restoration projectshortleaf pine reforestation projectfarm incubator program, and education center, are a few of the highlights.

Please be aware that the Community Farm is an active facility not open to the public without the accompaniment of SAHC staff. To ensure the safety of all participants, maintain staff capacity, and create a positive experience, pre-registration for the hike is mandatory. Upon registration, you will receive an email containing specific information about where to meet on the farm and other essential details. It’s crucial to note that a significant portion of the hike may not be disability accessible.
