Franny’s Farm


Also make sure you have enough time to get there.

Our outing will be at Franny’s Farm about 25 minutes northwest of downtown Asheville; see directions from Asheville below. Do not rely on your GPS until you make sure it matches these directions or you will very likely get lost.  Also keep in mind that once you leave the interstate, you will probably NOT have cell phone signal. You may not have GPS reception either. So make sure you print or save these directions beforehand and follow them precisely.

These directions are from central Asheville, specifically, from Greenlife Grocery (our local Whole Foods). We recommend buying snacks or even a picnic lunch for after the tour, as well as “using the facilities” while you’re there. There will also be a bathroom available on site.

Finally, if you’re planning to bring some of our “catch of the day” to one of our partner restaurants, you MUST make a special reservation (see here). See you in the woods!
