Hidden Valley Farm

About

Farm to table dinners featuring local homegrown produce, held at different times throughout the year.

At Hidden Valley Farm, we grow sorghum cane every year and make our own molasses. This annual event; Hidden Valley Farm Sorghum Harvest, is always open to the public. Making molasses is an age old tradition that is disappearing, so we strive to keep this practice alive. We use our red antique tractor to grind the cane, which transfers the cane into a sugary juice. We then cook the cane juice over our stone barbeque pit which is located under the Hay Barn. Once the sorghum juice is cooked, we bottle our fine molasses into jars, which are available for sale. Our Sorghum Harvest is usually held in September. Come enjoy hot molasses and homemade biscuits by the fire.  

On occasion we host Farm to Table dinners here at the farm. This consists of local meat and produce from Haywood County. This is a great place to enjoy fresh food, beautiful scenery, and live music, which is also a staple here at Hidden Valley Farm. We stage concerts, barn dances, and many other social gatherings.
