Tabitha here today from Cats of Wildcat Woods to tell you what is so special about our hometown in western North Carolina. Fairview is a very rural agricultural town outside of south east of Asheville that is home to many artists.
The town sits in the Blue Ridge Mountains, part of the Appalachian Mountains. (We live on the other side of this ridge.)
The valleys in between the ridges are very fertile river bottom and we have organic farms like this one called Flying Cloud, as well as farms with cattle, pigs and chickens - all humanely raised and allowed to graze naturally on good food.
The Continental Divide also crosses the ridges - we have to drive over it to get to our house from town.
We also have a long horn cattle ranch in town - pretty cool to see the cows. Both male and female of this breed have horns.
So this means we have both rolling hills of pasture as well as steep mountains going up to 4000 feet above sea level.
We don't have a downtown per se - just a cluster of shops along the main road - a post office, grocery store, pizza place and a few others. This is our healthy quick stop - they carry local produce, meats, eggs, cheese, herbs, handmade local soaps, and lots of food and essential items. Kind of like a health food store.
We have so many artists living here that we have a studio tour twice a year for the public to visit them all. This sculpture sits int eh intersection of our main road in front of the eye doctor.
We love living here - lots of wildlife, progressive folks, great farms and eclectic artists!
