About Tiptoe through the Garden
Pitch your tent in a private spot on the edge of our small farm. Drink in the spring water, enjoy the beauty of small scale diverse agriculture. Have a base camp for endless day trips.
Chrysalis Earth Farm is a 3 acre Market Garden that uses beyond organic practices to offer vitality filled foods and herbs to our community. We do work 6 days a week, and are out working by 7:30 and usually wrap up by 6:30. You are will hear ducks, goats, dogs, humans, and small machines between these hours; the sounds of an operating farm! The tent is on the edge of the main field, so it will be less private during working hours, but is definitely private in the evenings. You are welcome to check out farm activities as they are happening. Campers can purchase farm food and duck eggs to cook up if interested!
We also host farm interns and WWOOFers, so there are other people around to socialize with if you wish. We have an outdoor kitchen space that Interns and WWOOFers use, that you are welcome to use too! Pots, pans utensils are available, but please bring all of your own food supplies. Cleaning up after yourself is important since the space is outdoors and shared. The outdoor kitchen has a gas range and a table and chairs. Next to the outdoor kitchen is a composting toilet, and we have a shower in the house that you may use up to one time a day.
We are located half way between the vibrant small towns of Sylva and Waynesville. Both have great breweries, resturants and local businesses to check out. Asheville is 45 minutes East. We are a stones throw to the Blue Ridge Parkway and within 30 minutes to Smokey Mountain National Forest, Nantahala National Forest, and Pisgah National Forest; seemingly endless mountains, rivers, creeks, rock balds, mountain tops, coves, waterfalls and lakes to explore.
