Franny’s Farm was founded in 2012 by Jeff, Frances, Zach & Blue Tacy. Our 18 acre farm is located in Leicester, North Carolina only 10 miles from downtown Asheville. We are dedicated to family, sustainability, ethical business and offering an organic farm for visitors to celebrate, learn, explore, relax and have a memorable time. Franny’s Farm is at the core an organic, sustainable farm that is home to many animals such as chickens, turkeys, sheep, goats and a donkey. There are vegetable, fruit, flower, bee and pollinator gardens as well as a u-pick blueberry hill. You can find these goods for sale in our farm store open Tuesday-Sunday. We serve as an event venue and host farm weddings and festivals such as Farm Fest & Asheville BARNAROO. We also offer a summer camp for school age children. Our facility is available for public and private events, educational opportunities, and getaways in our eco cabins. We have a lot going on and are looking for a friendly, focused, hard-working person with skills to work and live on the farm.
