The Farm – Farm Vacation In NC

The story of Broadwing Farm is the story of three generations of a family living together.  We moved to Hot Springs NC in the fall of 1992. Our plan was simple on the surface, “throw away your TV, eat a lot of peaches”, have children, stay close to the land and start an organic farm. Twentyfive years later, we’re still tweaking that plan. It has been a wonderful adventure, a homesteader’s dream that has evolved into sharing our beautiful organic farm with mountain getaway cabins and hot tubs. Our children, Josey and Eliot were born here, and now they are grown. Grampy Bob and Gramma Carol (Pete’s parents) have been with us every single step of the way on the Broadwing Farm adventure.  

For several years after we settled here we energetically pursued organic farming. We learned a lot. Looking back, it’s hard to believe we lasted as long as we did. It takes a really big truck full of greens to buy a couple bags of groceries. We spent our days tending greenhouses, fighting weeds and pernicious insects, disease and drought, not famin but sometimes locusts. It was exhilarating and exhausting. We sold our produce at several Asheville tailgate markets every week, served more than a few local restaurants and had a CSA for four years. Mary was known throughout the region as the sticky bun woman, because of the beauties that she baked and sold at market.  We traded sticky buns for medical services more than once. It’s a tough way to make a living and although it about wore us out, it provided us with loads of gardening skills, great friends and wonderful memories.

But by and by our livelihood began the transition from organic farming to cabin rentals. This was a natural choice when in 1999, somewhat randomly, we discovered Broadwing Farm was sitting on naturally warm mineral water, one of only two known properties in Hot Springs NC to have the  mineral waters! Our farm internship housing cabin was transformed into the Pine Cabin, our first venture into vacation rentals. The Poplar Cabin and Cedar Cabin followed and were done by 2006. The naturally warm mineral water has always been the biggest draw to the small town of Hot Springs and in 2010 we stopped doing tailgate markets altogether. The transition was complete. As an aside it is noteworthy that all the construction for the cabins was done “in house” so to speak. Farming has never been super-lucrative in these mountains, and this continues to be true, so I (Pete) worked winters in carpentry. The arc of my education as a builder can be seen in the construction styles of the cabins. When we built the Pine Cabin, in 1993, I was reading chapters about framing windows the night before I framed my first window. It was built with green lumber, youthful determination and naivete, but the results are charming and reflect a stage in the history of the farm that, like youth, couldn’t be recreated. The Poplar and the Cedar Cabins are built with more standard construction styles but all 3 cabins share a large portion of their lumber being sawn on our own sawmill here on the farm.

This brings up another important piece in the history and development of Broadwing Farm: the sawmill! Shortly after we moved here, Grampy Bob’s brother  (Uncle Ed) let us know that he was sitting on an old sawmill that had never even been un-crated. He wondered if we would be interested in buying it for a song. So unfolded a long and important chapter in the Broadwing Farm story.  It was a circle mill, not the new fangled easy to operate band-saw type sawmill . It was essentially a forty inch circle of steel with teeth and a lot of other moving parts to feed it wood. Operating a circle mill is as least as much art as trade, and here fate intervened in the form of Woodrow Ramsey, a 90 year old neighbor who had run a mill in Hot Springs, just down the road for decades. He was a real sawyer. Sawmilling was in his blood and it took no effort at all to get Woody to come over and get me going on my new mill. He loved it. After years of milling I can say from experience that sawmilling really does get in your blood. Woody would get a far away look in his eyes as he let the cants (a cant is a log that has been sawed to square) power by  under his hand. Woody has long since passed away. My favorite memory of Woody is when he would come over and see some of my lumber or my new construction and he would run his hand over the radial marks on the face of a board and frown a little and say with his high pitched Madison County draw, “when you gonna fix that sawmill, Pete?” The twinkle in his eye eventually betrayed he was just ribbing me, but also letting me know that I still had a long way to go. I probably never got there before I let the sawmill go, but in the meanwhile I was able to saw patterns for all three of my cabins and my parent’s house as well. Without that Belsaw 40” circle saw, Broadwing Farm would be very different place, that’s for sure.  

So the cabins, with their natural mineral water hot tubs, have been complete since about 2006. We still have large, beautiful kitchen gardens every year along with a growing u-pick blueberry orchard of 250 bushes. We really still think of ourselves as organic farmers who have rental cabins with hot tubs. We always try to grow an abundance and share with our guests. Meeting guests in the garden to share food is one of the best parts of our job. Even after all these years and many adventures, the beauty of this place still blows me away. Meeting our guests in the garden with the Blue Ridge Mountains, the French Broad River, and the scenic town of Hot Springs NC all in view is my favorite scene from the next chapter in the story of Broadwing Farm.

I had been searching for nearly a month trying to find a place to stay for my family of 5. I was so frustrated that I nearly gave up until I came across Kid & Coe. After a matter of days, I had our entire vacation booked into the most amazing properties.

SCM, Member Since 1998

Amazing: What a wonderful place. Everything was perfect, from the wonderful owner, the chef, and every staff we made contact with. The cottage was beautiful, clean, and cozy. We enjoyed everything about the experience and will absolutely be back in the future.

The Carriage House: We stayed at their property in Asheville called the carriage house. It is a lovely two bedroom apt about five minutes from downtown. Fully stocked and luxurious linens. Much better value than a hotel! Strongly recommend. We had a wonderful visit to the Asheville area, Biltmore, and returning to a lovely apt daily was wonderful!

If you are longing for a place that has a limited number of neighbors on a quiet farm setting, you need to try The Farm! We found it advertised on the internet when trying to find a smaller sized overnight stay within minutes of both the mountains, Blue Ridge Parkway and Asheville. It is conveniently located to a major state road (highways 23 and 74) which leads directly into downtown A Special Place with Rustic Charm for Couples: The grounds have many beautiful large trees and plants, their own garden, several horses and chickens. We stayed in the Chestnut Cabin and it was unique in many ways, providing large bath, living room and king bedroom areas. The fireplace access from both the living room and porch was a special romantic touch. If you are looking for this type of atmosphere and yet close to a variety of activities, give The Farm a good look.

My daughter, mother, and I attended their Culinary Escape Weekend . . . We stayed in the Firefly cottage. It is brand new and was much more than I was expecting. It is decorated and furnished beautifully with charming touches such as the stone fireplace. The location is very convenient to Asheville. Our weekend came with 2 breakfasts and a dinner with cooking demonstration. Head Chef Mike is a superb chef, very personable, and really knows his stuff . . . The food was amazing and so delicious! Such a treat!! I definitely want to go back, and when/if my daughter gets married I would definitely consider this place even given the fact that it is not close to home for us.

Inside look of Franny's Farm

asheville mountain cabinsMy heart is in the Highlands…

When Scottish pioneers reached the Great Smoky Mountains, they felt like they had come home. The wooded mountains wreathed in mist, the rolling meadows, the rocky streams rushing through the glens-all reminded them of their own Highlands of Scotland. They settled here and farmed the land in the way of their grandfathers, and the Smokies became known as The Southern Highlands.

Come to the Southern Highlands.
Come home to Randall Glen.

Our mountainside and the rolling pastures of our farm occupy a peaceful high glen at the end of a beautiful valley. Come share our farm bounty. Pick an armful of wildflowers, glory in a sunset, dream by a crackling fire. When you come to Randall Glen,  you’ll never want to leave. Once you leave you’ll always want to come back.

horseback riding vacations nc Randall Glen is located just outside Asheville in the historic farming community of Big Sandy Mush. Completely isolated by mountains, this picture postcard valley is still farmed by original settler families and has no commercial development at all. We’re on Newfound Mountain at the very end of the valley, and have over a hundred acres of mountainside and rolling pasture filled with wildflowers, creeks, and forest. We’re surrounded by thousands of acres of conservancy land, and wildlife flourishes here. Our home farm, Randall Cove Farm, is at an elevation of 3100 feet and our Randall Glen mountaintop is at 3600 feet, giving us wonderfully cool summer air and great snow in the winter. We’re so high, in fact, that sometimes we’re actually surrounded by clouds.

Our Home Farm

asheville farm vacationsOur home farm provides fresh vegetables, fruits, and eggs. Visitors are welcome to participate in everyday farm life and to help feed our Highland sheep, goats, chickens, ducks, guinea fowl, Jersey cows, and horses. According to season, you might experience sheep shearing, horseshoeing, or bottle feeding lambs and baby goats. There are simple pleasures, too, like blackberrying, creek wading, picking armloads of wildflowers, chasing fireflies, and gazing at more stars than you’ve ever seen.

We want you to feel at home here, and to feel as if you’re part of these mountains.

Come to the Southern Highlands. Come home to Randall Glen.

PLEASE NOTE: We wish we could welcome pets, but this is a working farm. It is the job of our Great Pyrenees guardian dogs to protect our livestock. They sometimes perceive visitor dogs as a threat, and this creates a very stressful situation for all parties. For this reason, pets of any kind are strictly prohibited to visit. We hope you understand.
