Psycho Chicken Eco Farm

We practice regenerative agriculture by implementing agroecology practices in harmony with nature that exceed USDA Organic standards utilizing no-till/reduced till, permaculture principles, heirloom varieties, and seed saving.  This vegetable farm (no chickens yet) is located on the site of the old “Treadway Ranch” in West Asheville, North Carolina. We are committed to bringing a variety of fresh, ecologically grown, traditional produce to Asheville restaurants and markets while sequestering carbon using regenerative agriculture techniques. We do not use pesticides or synthetic fertilizers–ever.  We minimize the burning of fossil fuels and disruption to the ecosystem though careful planning, minimal tillage, deep mulching, on-site compost and biochar production, crop rotation, biofuels, solar PV, and vast amounts human powered hard work. We grow produce the old fashioned way: with sun, water, and plenty of TLC.

Go beyond organic. Go Psycho.

What's in this week

  • 2016-2018–the years of infrastructure improvement!  Sadly, this means we’ll only be growing for ourselves as we fix up the barns, house and continue our work building the soil here at the farm.
  • 2019-2020, Infrastructure improvements continue, but we’re in limited production testing out the new hoop house.  We’re periodically selling surplus direct as well as a winter greens CSA for pickup in the 5 points neighborhood of Asheville, check out the online store here for a smattering of occasional farm items for sale.
