Conservation. Education. Demonstration

About Us

A small family farm with big dreams.

Duck Dance Farm is a 4 acre sustainable homestead and farm located in the South Toe area of Burnsville, North Carolina. What began as a get away project from a life filled with traffic jams and boardrooms has become our full-time passion. Since 2010 our tight-knit family of four has worked tirelessly to restore our land and create productive systems that benefit humans, animals, plants, and the planet as a whole.

The farmers in their natural habitat.


Our farm mission is embodied by the three ideals of conservation, education, and demonstration. Conservation of heritage and endangered species of plants and animals, education of our customers, and demonstration of a productive and responsible way of farming are our primary goals.

GPS and Google Maps will NOT bring you to our farm. Please use the following directions to get here:

From Asheville:

1) Take I-26 north towards Johnson City.

2) Take Exit 9 and head right at end of exit ramp, towards Burnsville on 19.

3) Go about 21 miles and go right onto Micaville Loop – towards 80 South - note Brown sign for Mt. Mitchell State Park.

4) Go about 0.6 miles and make a right onto Hwy 80 S.

5) Go about 6.4 miles on Hwy 80 and then go right onto White Oak Rd. DO NOT TURN ONTO WHITE OAK IF THERE IS A WHITE BAPTIST CHURCH SIGN ON THE RIGHT. White Oak Rd. loops around onto Hwy 80 so you want follow these directions carefully. Your turn is just past 7 Mile Ridge Rd, and signs for the Celo Health Center and Arthur Morgan School, and then the Toe River Crafts store on the right.

6) Go about 1 mile and make a left onto White Oak Creek Rd (sharp curve starts just before turn, so you don't see it coming until you are almost to it).

7) Go about 1 mile and make a left onto Troxell Drive. Landmarks: a blue waterpoint sign is on the left, and behind that is a sign for our farm, which instructs you to BEAR LEFT on our driveway. The first house past the big pond on the right side of drive is ours.
