We are a family farm located 15 minutes outside of Asheville NC. We have a diversified organic vegetable operation that works closely with a dozen of the best restaurants in downtown to harvest and deliver to them (twice per week) whatever is in season. We attend two tailgate markets each week (North Asheville Tailgate Market and the River Arts District Market) and have a 70 member CSA. Our farm hosts several farm-to-table dinners throughout the season. Along with our vegetables, we have a herd of Red Devon cattle and a flock of laying hens. We have been growing and selling in Asheville since the late 90's. The vegetables that we grow are geared towards people who like to cook.

    About working for Gaining Ground Farm...

    “Anne and Aaron make a great team. They have different backgrounds in farming, so between the two of them they have a lot of knowledge to share. I am farming on my own, now, after interning at Gaining Ground for two seasons, and I still ask them for advice and recommendations. Beyond farming, they are funny, kind people and I miss them all the time.”

    - Catherine, former apprentice and owner of Warbler Creek Farm
