We hope you will consider adding a donation to MANNA's Packs for Kids program.

Head to the bucolic hills of Fairview, just southeast of Asheville, where western North Carolina’s rich agricultural heritage lives on at family farms and artisan food producers. Experience the century-plus legacy of Hickory Nut Gap Farm, a sustainable farm run by the fifth generation of family owners. Savor award-winning farmstead cheeses at Looking Glass Creamery—a place so hands-on, the cheese maker milks the cows herself—and pick up fresh-from-the-fields produce at Flying Cloud Farm. Along the way, enjoy locally produced beverages.
