Our Food Philosophy

At the Applewood Manor, the culinary experience mirrors that of the highest quality food trends from around the world.

With a focus on farm-to-fork, gourmet recipes, we are working to make the farm-to-table experience a pervasive one by installing gardens from which we will soon be able to source an estimated eighty percent of our consumable product. Many specialty species of edibles (including vegetables, fruits, spices, and soon eggs) are grown organically on site.

In addition to the one thousand square feet of raised beds designed specifically for this purpose, many edible species have been incorporated into the landscape decoratively in a symbiotic relationship to solely decorative species.
The process of overhauling the property to suit this new model has been a rewarding one and truly a labor of love. As the seasons progress, the crops will rotate to provide the kitchen with the latest and highest quality ingredients on the market.

Asheville Gourmet Bed and BreakfastWe invite our guests not only to enjoy the food prepared daily at our unique three course breakfast experience, but to tour the gardens and take a look at the growing operation up-close. We are excited to share updates as we install new recreational features on the grounds and as the micro-farm evolves into the Eden that we have designed it to blossom into.

Join chef Joshua Poindexter and horticulturist Chase McWhorter as they work daily to ensure the forward movement of this ambitious enterprise in order to provide you with a truly enjoyable and nourishing experience, one you will be hard-pressed to find at competitive locations.
