Activities at the Farm
Briar Rose Farm is located in a rural area approximately 45 minutes northwest of Asheville and 25 minutes
south of Hot Springs, North Carolina.

On the farm there is a creek, a sawmill, farm animals, seasonal berries to pick, trails to hike, numerous
photo opportunities, gardens to wander, and a vegetable garden for the use of our guests. This is a
working farm and we want it to serve as one of the highlights of your visit!  And yes, we can usually find a
"farm chore" if you wish to participate!

Our road also leads to a fire tower. To reach the tower, travelers trek two miles along Tug Fork Creek as it
tumbles down the mountain.  It is a moderate hike but well worth the 360 degree view and the wild
raspberries along the way if you are lucky enough to arrive at the right time!  Friezeland Creek also borders
the farm and is stocked with rainbow trout for those with a valid North Carolina fishing license. Spring Creek
is another trout stream that is within two miles of the farm.
