Snaggy Mountain is 67 acres of mountain land operating as both as an organic farm and a musicians/artists retreat. The property consists of three secluded valleys, each with grassy hills surrounded by forests. The first valley is like a little village featuring the main house, the farm, multiple private art studios, and a solar powered music studio/stage. Entering up into the next valley you'll pass a teepee and then walk up the old road and pasture towards two massive black walnut trees and a small writers cabin on the hill top. The third valley is the most heavenly part of the farm, and it's home to the apple orchard campsite. Imagine a grassy a knoll on mountainside surrounded by apple trees and a patch of old growth forest looking straight towards a breathtaking view of the Black and Blue Ridge Mountains. For a campsite it's hard to beat.
Depending on time of year there around 12 people living here, usually around 6-8 folks doing artist residencies and then 3 or 4 folks running the farm. . The people living here are pursuing a lifestyle in the arts or sustainability. We also have dogs, cats, ducks, chickens and cows.
The town of Burnsville is only a 5-8 minute drive and its a quaint little mountain town but with multiple grocery stores, restuarants, stores, galleries and a rich artistic culture. We're just about 35 minutes from the culturally vibrant Asheville and just 1 hour from the artsy college town atmosphere of Boone.
The farm is old family land owned originally by my great, great grandfather. About 40 years ago my grandfather had a dairy farm out here, eventually that ended and the land sat more or less abandoned until 2012 when I (Jared) moved out here and beganbuilding a place revolving around music, arts, sustainability and community. It's been a fascinating ride and the best part has been hosting all of the inspiring people who are out exploring and making dreams come true.
