APtravelnews-September 11th, Walnut Cove Farm–Waynesville, North Carolina–Agri-tourism is very much alive and well at Walnut Cove Farm. Joseph and Tara Cathey have worked hard and smart turning one acre of land in Waynesville, NC and 3-acres in Bethel into a wonderfully productive garden and growing enterprise. Majic Heirloom Tomatoes, all kinds of greens and other field and tree fruits and veggies attract people from all walks of life to farm to table suppers often accompanied by Blue Grass music where guests as we did actually watch the process of grinding and pressing fresh apples into the most delicious apple cider straight from the press. While there, we enjoyed silver dollar sized little tomato pies (I ate 10 of them, beyond “good”) drank two glasses of cider and felt like Superman- the apples and tomatoes boosted my “WOW” factor by at least 10 (at least Barb and I felt like it did) and these folks made you genuinely feel as welcome as family. We loved this place. Besides the dinners they provide to the public they also supply restaurants and other businesses in and around Waynesville with produce for their uses in healthy, creative dishes too! Do we recommend going out of your way to visit these fine folks and enjoy a farm to table dinner? Oh, yes!!!!
