Longview Farm is at a high elevation, around 4200 feet, and has almost a 360-degree view of Grandfather Mountain and Beech and Sugar Mountain Ski Resorts from atop Howards Creek Road. We offer hayrides, hot chocolate and other amenities that make a trip to the High Country a yearly family tradition.
Our family farm is a rare example of a successful mountain farm that hasn't and hopefully will never be developed. We think our farm is unique in that we have had 6 generations now working on the farm with the full intentions of many more generations keeping the farm productive. Letting people know that our farm is enrolled in Farmland Preservation also shows our commitment to the land and keeping it in agriculture. Farming is very important to us because it is our way of life and how we choose to raise our children. By promoting the importance of family farms, and taking that message to our customers and other people visiting the area, we will help more people understand the importance for preserving farms and appreciating all they offer. We would be happy to share with others our lessons learned and show how we’ve made things work on our family farm. Since the whole family works on the farm, and we are one of the largest family farms left in the area, we thought that would also appeal to people who didn't know much about farming. We want to tell our family’s farming history so people will realize what a special farm they are visiting.
Throughout the years, our family has worked together in all our farming projects. We grew tobacco, cabbage and potatoes for many years and recently began dealing with cattle and Christmas trees. From growing our own garden to harvesting trees, we all take a part in helping and what money is made just helps to keep it all going. We feel that time spent together as a family farming cannot be replaced. Danny says, "Tree farming reminds me of something my mother and grandparents would say about tobacco farming. It is a 13 month a year job because it seems like there is always something to do on a tree farm."
