Fresh Local Strawberries from Full Sun Farm Served up here at this Asheville Bed and Breakfast

May 10th, 2011 by stacy

From farm to bed and breakfast table, Asheville’s Pinecrest Bed and Breakfast works with local farmers to bring you delicious and healthy local food.  Strawberries have come in early at Full Sun Farm and we are serving them up at breakfast.  These ripe, red, juicy fruits come from our friends at the farm which is located in Sandy Mush (about 45 minutes from Asheville).

This small, family farm is run by Alex Brown and Vanessa Campbell.   They reside on the farm in an old farm house with their two young daughters, Ada and Belle.  Their mission at the farm is to nurture their family and community by growing beautiful, healthy produce through good land stewardship.  They apply organic farming methods to grow vegetables, berries, and cut flowers on their 17 acre farm. They also have three greenhouses where they start their transplants from seed and grow tomatoes, melons, and cucumbers.   All of their produce is sold locally and Alex and Vanessa are well known at the farmer’s markets.

When visiting this Asheville NC Inn this summer you will get the chance to taste their delicious blueberries in our Blueberry Waffles, their vegetables in out Farmers Market Frittata and the lovely summer squash in our zuchini bread. As Julia used to say: “Bon Appetit!”
