The Mast Farm Inn & Over Yonder have designed the Valle Crucis Winter Weekends program to contribute to our Western North Carolina High Country community & non-profit organizations. The series which runs over ten weekends in January, February, and March enables us to promote North Carolina classics, foods, spirits, craft beer, and wine, and their local suppliers, while providing us all the opportunity to give back to local non-profit organizations.
For each of the ten winter weekends in the program, five percent of our total income for the weekend (Friday, Saturday, & Sunday), at both The Mast Farm Inn and Over Yonder, will be donated to the local non-profit being featured that weekend. We stress that the proceeds will be calculated from the total income at both companies for the weekend, and not just from sales of the featured services, items & products presented here.

The Valle Crucis Community Park • The Valle Crucis Community Park is an important component of community life for our area. The Park serves residents of Watauga, Avery, and Ashe Counties in North Carolina as well as visitors from other parts of the state and nation. The Park’s twenty-three acres provide an ideal setting for walking, jogging, picnicking, and fishing. Park fields are also used for several sporting events. On our website you will find extensive information on the Park, our Mission & Objectives, and how we serve families and our community. The park is a special place of refuge and recreation for families and children in the valley. The spirit, atmosphere, playground equipment, walking trails, shelters, pavilions and amenities are all of the highest caliber, and the setting pristine and unique. The Park is situated on the banks of the Watauga River, which also provides for toe dipping, bathing and fishing. Above all the park is our village square, where members of the community meet, enjoy each other’s company, enjoy their children, grandchildren, the wildlife and the great outdoors. | Website | FaceBook |

Heritage Farms Cheshire Pork • The Ivey Family fell in love with the Chester White heritage breed hog 37 years ago with a goal to produce the best pork possible. They have been raising pure-breed heritage hogs in Seven Springs, NC ever since for the exceptional rich and wonderful taste that these hogs produce. The Ivey Family’s proprietary pork has gained adoration in Japan, a nation known for demanding top-quality premium pork. As a result, Heritage Farms is leaps and bounds ahead of most US farms in terms of transparency, flavor, and quality due to the demands set forth by the Japanese market. Heritage Farms Premium Pork now brings to the U.S. market, what once was reserved only for Japanese plates. Just as the best wines from around the world go to countries that appreciate and pay for their quality and superior taste, premium quality pork goes to Japan, a country that has set the standard for buying the highest quality pork. | Website | FaceBook | Twitter| Pinterest |
Featured North Carolina Spirit
Troy & Sons, Asheville Distilling Company • True mountain moonshine is made from corn, and we hunted throughout the WNC mountains for the perfect strain – and found it just a few miles from Asheville. The corn had become virtually extinct everywhere except on the McEntire Farm… believed to be lost from Eastern Tennessee since 1840. Crooked Creek Corn™ is an heirloom open-pollinated white corn that has been grown on the McEntire farm for over one hundred twenty years. Analyzed by researchers at the University of Tennessee, this “lost corn” is an unadulterated, non-genetically modified original American corn, making our moonshine a true American spirit. Each batch of Troy & Sons moonshine is made using Crooked Creek Corn™ and locally milled Southern white corn. | Website | FaceBook | Twitter| Pinterest |
Featured North Carolina Beer
Mother Earth Brewing • Take the goodness of garden-grown products, the warmth of small town life, the earthy ethic of rock ‘n roll, a deep respect for a time-honored craft… and you have the ingredients of Mother Earth Brewing. Born in the summer of 2008, Mother Earth is the dream-child of Stephen Hill and Trent Mooring, two guys from Kinston, North Carolina, a sweet southern town in the heart of the old tobacco belt. The Mother Earth Brewing tap room and beer garden is the place where we enjoy the fruits of our labor, as well as share them with you. As an extension of Mother Earth, the same ribbon of green runs through the tap room as it does through the rest of our brewery. All of the old brick, wood, metal and steel in the room were re-used from the original structure, and the tap room is 100% solar powered by a 3 kilowatt solar array on the roof. Come visit us when you’re in town and enjoy one of our fine hand-crafted brews straight from the tap. | Website | FaceBook Page | FaceBook Group | Twitter | InstaGram |
Featured North Carolina Wine
Shelton Vineyards • Located in the Yadkin Valley American Viticulture Area, the vineyard shares a similar climate and growing season to that of some of the best wine growing regions in Europe. The vineyard is one of the largest on the East Coast. Founded in 1999 by Brothers Charlie and Ed Shelton, Shelton Vineyards was envisioned as a new agricultural resource for an area once dependent on tobacco farming. Located in the heart of North Carolina’s Yadkin Valley, Shelton Vineyards is 180 degrees from any winery you will find on the West Coast. The distinctive characteristics of Shelton wine come from the unique soil and climate of the Yadkin Valley. This helps give Shelton wine an inimitable taste that holds its own against any wine from any area in the world. We invite you to visit us, try our wine and see if you agree that our wine is as unique as our area. | Website | FaceBook | Twitter | Pinterest |
