About Us
Established in January, 2017 by Dave Walker, Daffodil Spring Farm is my first step into farming. Daffodils come up before our last snow. They're hopeful and tell us that the mountains will soon be green again, full of new vibrant colors.

Daffodil Spring Farm leases land at the the FIG Farm in Valle Crucis's pastoral Upper Valley. A part of the High Country of Western North Carolina, Valle Crucis is located about 20 minutes outside of Boone, NC in the Blue Ridge of the Southern Appalachian Mountains. The FIG Farm is designed to provide beginning farmers with a relatively low-risk entry avenue for new producers by providing land, production and marketing infrastructure to help farmers establish lasting farm enterprises in the High Country. The FIG Farm property is owned by the Valle Crucis Conference Center and is under a long-term conservation easement with Blue Ridge Conservancy.

I'm excited about this new adventure and hope that you will join along! Learn more by visiting my website: www.daffodilspringfarm.com

Practices
Daffodil Spring Farm practices regenerative agriculture and holistic land management. This means that pigs are frequently rotated every two weeks to fresh grass. What the pigs have rooted up is sowed with a cover crop mixture of buckwheat and red clover in the spring and summer and winter wheat in the fall. This builds our soil and provides food for the animals.

Daffodil Spring Farm sources its heritage-breed pigs from Melinda Brown of Never Ending Farm in Sugar Grove, NC, an Animal Welfare Approved farmer.

To supplement the pigs' food, they are fed a GMO-free pig feed diet, by hand, twice a day, There is always fresh, clean water available and ample room for them to root and graze. Feeding them by hand, allows us to assure that they remain healthy and makes them easier to work with and better natured.

I am proud to be an Animal Welfare Approved Farm! Learn more at http://animalwelfareapproved.us/

Beginning in 2018, Daffodil Spring Farm offers potatoes, grown without the use of pesticides and herbicides.
