Against the Grain is a small-scale diversified farm located 15minutes from downtown Boone in Zionville, NC. We live on a 20acre farmstead and raise a broad spectrum of vegetables on a little under 2 acres. We also raise pasture chicken, turkey, pork, beef and goat. We focus on three main markets: Watauga Co. Farmer’s Market (weekly farmer’s market), New Appalachia (wholesale distributor), and the High Country CSA (multi-farm CSA). We also market our meat through an on-farm CSA and to local restaurants, and in 2016, we plan to launch a small vegetable CSA.
We offer basic, three-seasons accommodations with a common area for cooking and an outdoor shower. We also offer a modest stipend, a meat and egg stipend and unlimited access to vegetables. We are open to variable lengths of stays on the farm, but we prefer a 5-6 month commitment.
