Every day at Asheville Farmstead is a new experience and the best laid plans go out the window for some real adventurous education! Rain storms turn garden parties into wet frolics and impromptu water slides. A pair of mating cicadas grabs the attention of children and adults alike. A missing toy leads everyone on a search and rescue mission. The only way to really know what goes on at the Farmstead is to join in on the fun!

“The last word in ignorance is the man who says of an animal or plant, "What good is it?" If the land mechanism as a whole is good, then every part is good, whether we understand it or not. If the biota, in the course of aeons, has built something we like but do not understand, then who but a fool would discard seemingly useless parts? To keep every cog and wheel is the first precaution of intelligent tinkering.”  
-Aldo Leopold
