Planter at Chicken Coop!!

We have just added a new planter to the outside of the solar-powered chicken coop! This planter is constructed from railroad ties. We filled the planter with heated manure (from our barn animals) to grow the plants in. Heating manure is letting the sun burn Nitrogen from the manure to make a cheap and ecologically sustainable fertilizer. We have planted vegetables, herbs, and flowers. They include: Corn, Onion, Oregano, Dill, Pineapple Sage, Sage, Marigolds, +.

New Chicken Coop

We have a new chicken coop! This small coop sits on a hillside by the barn and is surrounded by Zinnias and Marigolds. The coop is primarily used to raise baby chicks. This new coop has 4 nesting boxes, a ramp, and a perch. We also have put a flower pot filled with dirt inside of the coop so that the young hens will learn to take a dust bath. Chickens take dust baths in order to stay clean and healthy.

Baby Chicks!!

Children love holding our chicks. This year we bought Arucanas, Laced Wyandottes, and Turkens. This is our first year having Turkens. Turkens have no feathers on their necks. The chicks are all 10 weeks old. At 12 weeks they will be able to jump up and perch. They will start laying eggs at 6 months.

Could not have been better!

“Beautiful and cozy cabin was perfect for our spring getaway and 1st trip to NC! Tranquil home base for our 3 day weekend of Blue Ridge hiking, cycling, and relaxing in the hot tub and around the premises!! Very tasteful interior with all appliances & amenities one needs! Wish we could have stayed longer as we were just beginning to acquaint ourselves with the food and friendly environment of the community. Frank was extremely helpful and “the farm” is very accessible to Asheville. Fresh bread and perfect eggs await you! What could be better?”

Great Place

“The Cove at Fairview was recommended by a few friends who have stayed with children and it did not disappoint. The cabin was well decorated and the bed was very comfortable, much better than a hotel. The area was peaceful and quiet but still had plenty to do. Our toddler loved the horses, chickens, donkeys, and fish. I highly recommend!”

Enjoyed the Cabin!

“We enjoyed the cabin and the hospitality.  It was nice to meet you guys and enjoyed seeing the chickens and eating their eggs, comfy beds and nice hot tub.  We had a great stay.”

Very Lovely!

“This place is very lovely.  We were extremely pleased from massages to animals and just taking in the surroundings.  Thank you for everything.  Not one complaint!”

Wonderful Respite!

“Such a wonderful respite in our sweet little round house!  The waterfalls are a soothing balm, & the horses, kitties, & chickens bring smiles, too.  Thank you for the special breakfast treat as the delicious bread – both the perfect touch for 2 days of pampering. =)”

Enjoyed The Fireplace!!

“It’s apparent from the attention to detail that you guys really love what you do.  From start to finish, our stay was wonderful.  Our goal as a family was to craft memories for our kids to cherish & you all made that possible.  All of the staff was eager to please.  The linens were superb, the fresh bread unexpected & wonderful.  Our kids enjoyed the animals, and we enjoyed the fireplace. Best wishes with your labor of love”

Beautiful Cabin and Waterfall

“Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful cabin and waterfall! It was the perfect place to stay while enjoying Asheville.  Frank’s tips for planning our week were very helpful, and the chickens contributed to our breakfast with the most delicious eggs we’ve ever had.”
