This hands-on activity will use mobile processing equipment that farms throughout the High Country can affordably rent. Together, we'll learn how to humanely process pastured poultry at an Animal Welfare Approved Farm.
Besides poultry, Healing Springs also raises grass fed Belted Galloway cattle and pastured pigs. In addition to the farm portion, the farm features renovated historic cabins that they rent out on nightly basis to guests. The main draw on the property is the "Healing" Spring. Discovered in 1883, the water from the spring is recorded to have a cured a wide variety of ailments. Healing Springs markets its products through an on-farm store, at the Ashe County Farmers' Market and through the High Country Food Hub.
