SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 8TH, WE'LL BID FAREWELL TO OUR LAST HIPCAMPER FOR 2020. It's been an incredible year meeting so many kind and fun campers who joined us this season. Thank you SO much to all who came and those who clicked on to the farm's Hipcamp page to just check things out! We're lucky to have met so many new people and had a few return once again. We're super excited for next Spring when we'll re-open the farm again for our 3rd Season! Look for some new updates to the farm and camping sites then.
Pitch your tent on our 10-acre farm in Canton, NC. Our campsites are on our property in a valley with mountains on both sides for wonderful views. Peaceful, pastoral beauty, with chickens, three turkeys, a bunny, and a bubbling creek. Fireflies all summer long and morning rooster's song! Sites are positioned up to 20 yards apart, which allows for social distancing for the four sites in the main camping area. Please be responsible for yourselves and others to ensure this is carried out. Also, please use Backwoods Camping Etiquette by *taking out whatever you bring in*. Thanks.
The farm has more private stay sites, but without an available fire pit. There are two communal fire rings, a relaxing hammock, and a picnic table with six chairs. You're welcome to bring your own chairs and/or table, as needed. The fire rings provide warmth (and social distancing) as the cooler mountain air comes in after the sun goes behind the Western mountains. We have bundles of firewood available for $5/night. Each bundle should provide 2-3 hours' worth of burning time. Bring your own matches or lighter for starting.
We have games, too! Giant Jenga, Croquet, and CornHole available--just $5/day for either. As a producing farm, in-season veggies, herbs, flowers, and eggs are available to purchase for visit or to take home. You're more than welcome to harvest your own bounty! In keeping with good stewardship of the farm, we don't want any outside critters or plant diseases brought onto the farm. Thank you for understanding.
You can hike at nearby trails to have a canopy overhead and enjoy the beautiful vistas. There's a swimming hole just on the other side Lake Logan going towards the Blue Ridge Parkway (a 24-mile drive one way) on NC Highway 215. We are also 20 minutes from both Asheville (I-40E) and Waynesville (I-40W).

Kelly and her family were some of the nicest people you could hope to meet. They live in a beautiful house that they built themselves. The house sits on an expansive farm far away from any noise pollution. When I arrived I was greeted with a fresh cup of tea, and good conversation. Kelly was very welcoming, and made sure I had everything I needed for a successful/enjoyable stay.
The campsite sits at the base of the farm right next to a stream. The site has a fire pit, room for multiple tents, and a nice table with six chairs. It's a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. For a campsite, you can't ask for more. I think it's safe to say that I'll definitely be returning!
I had a great stay. Kelly and her family were very welcoming and helpful. Location was good, 25 min drive to asheville and many hikes are about an hour away. The tent site is by a creek, very quiet and peaceful. Hoping to come back soon!
Serene. If I had to describe our stay at Far Flung Farm in one word that's the word I'd choose. We loved our stay there, starting from the moment we turned into the driveway and were greeted by our delightful host, Kelly, her crew of free roaming happy chickens, and the sweet aroma of new mown hay. She offered us eggs if we needed them, and let us pick some fresh basil for dinner from among the many varieties in her abundant garden. The farm is located in a sweet little valley, about 20 minutes from Ashville. The view of the surrounding mountains includes Cold Mountain off in the distance. Our campsite was nestled in a corner of the property, next to a little stream whose gentle music soothed us through the quiet night. The firefly show was an added bonus. Toilet, shower, and water were available in Kelly and Ben's warm and welcoming home. Be sure to bring your own wood if you want to use the fire ring. If you're looking for something off the beaten path, but close to Ashville, the Smokies, and all that this region has to offer, this is the place for you. We'd come back to Far Flung Farm in a heartbeat.
This was the second time that my boyfriend and I stayed at Far Flung Farm, and we would definitely go back for a 3rd, 4th, and 5th time. Kelly is such a kind human and made us feel so welcome - she even sent us off with some croissants on our last morning! The property is gorgeous and is surrounded by mountains and a a small creek. The house was built by the family and is so bright and colorful! Kelly and her family have two beautiful dogs, Luna and Preacher, who are so sweet, as well as chickens, and flocks of hummingbirds! Overall, the atmosphere here is enchanting. I would absolutely reccomend this site!
Kelly and Ben were fabulous hosts!! Their home and property is absolutely beautiful! We set up camp in the corner of their property with a beautiful, babbling creek behind us. Each morning we awoke to the sounds of the creek, the rooster crowing in the distance, birds chirping, and beautiful foggy mountains. Kelly and Ben have beautiful flower gardens and lots of cute things to add character to their lovely home. It's private, but close enough to their home if you need to use facilities. They were very accommodating and helpful during our stay. Their home is about 20 mins from Asheville and 20 mins from a cute little town called Waynesville. We had a blast!! We hope to have the opportunity to go back sometime!! Thanks so much Kelly and Ben!!!

Kelly and Ben’s Far Flung Farm is a wonderful place to stay! I was greeted by the whole family upon my arrival, including their two pups, Luna and Preacher! Kelly had some business out of town and had to leave for the duration of my stay, but I was left in Ben’s capable hands! He checked in every once in a while just to see how everything was, but not so often as to disturb me. He even recommended some places for me to go mountain biking (which is why I took the whole trip in the first place)!
The peaceful campsite sits at the back of their beautiful property, nestled in a stunning valley, right next to a small creek which provides some of the best white noise to help you fall asleep.
Overall, I highly recommend staying at Kelly and Ben’s Far Flung Farm! You won’t regret it!
