Directions to the farm: Take US 421S from Boone (toward Wilkesboro) for 10 m; turn N on US 221 towards W. Jefferson. Go approximately 6 miles. Turn right on Watertank Road (first right after the sign for the New River Zoo; road has a brown sign for Mt Olive Baptist Church). Continue for about 0.3 m. Turn right at the first gravel driveway (there are 4 mailboxes here) where the mailbox reads 608. Go straight up the driveway for 0.25 mile to the farm gate (road narrows to one lane into the farm).
