PETS: Please be respectful of all the other animals on the farm and guests by cleaning up all animal waste and properly disposing of it in the outside garbage cans. Pets must be attended at all times and cannot be left in the cabin or on the premises without supervision. There is a $20 pet fee.

LINENS: We provide linens, blankets, 3 pillows and 2 or 3 towels.

Guest access
We encourage guests to familiarize themselves with all the farm has to offer. Visit the animals and by all means give them a carrot and they'll love you forever. Tour the gardens and see what is growing. There may even be the freshest ingredients you can harvest from the garden. Walk in the pollinator garden and on the Moonshine Mary Trail. Gathering around the fire pit seems to be favored by all. You can just relax and star gaze. Bring a FLASHLIGHT! It gets dark out here on the farm and you will need it to navigate at night.

Other things to note

Location

Leicester, North Carolina, United States

Leicester is located only 20 minutes from downtown Asheville and 45 minutes to Hot Springs. It is beautiful farm land and all important amenities like a market, grocery store & gas station are close. With that said, the closest food is our beloved hometown Turkey Creek Cafe and fast food about 10 minutes outside the farm.

Frannys Farm, also referred to as "the bowl of heaven" has been featured in media across the country as the home of the first female hemp farmer in NC. Our hemp garden now serves as an educational site among fruit, herb & vegetable gardens, free range chickens, sheep, goats, bee hives and Abigail, our famous donkey! You can interact with the animals, pet and feed them snacks, maybe even catch "Goat Yoga" in season, hike the self guided trail, watch the sun rise and set from the ridge or just relax on the farm. Starlight skies, bonfires, roasted marshmallows and conversations with new friends at the "community firepit" (where we supply the wood) creates memories to last a lifetime.
