From its origins as a berry farm, the harvests have been expanded beyond fruit to include lush, wine grape vines, now the primary focus of the fully-working vineyard. Nestled in the quaint community of Bethel, the vineyard provides sweeping mountain views into multiple states.
Approximately 12 acres of the property is planted with more than 14,000 plants, including blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, wine grapes and Christmas trees, all of which were specifically chosen for the cooler climate of the North Carolina High Country Mountains.
Since 2014, local residents have flocked to Bethel Valley Farms to partake in its popular “you-pick” program, which enables the public to procure their own fresh produce.
Property features include:
- 38 total acres with 12 acres of farmed agriculture
- 1.2-acre pond fed with three springs and stocked with trout
- Barn outfitted with full utilities, kitchenette, walk-in cooler, and office with full bathroom
- Buried power lines
- Completed road system
- Multiple, 3,500-foot building sites
“This would be ideal for a developer of an agro-community or for a master vintner to utilize our mature vines and craft North Carolina’s most delicious wines.”
“The 360-degree, panoramic views of Grandfather, Beech, Yellow and Stone Mountains are absolutely priceless.”
- Lawson Fields, sales associate, Premier Sotheby’s International Realty
“This is an incredible opportunity to own a remarkable property and a thriving business, all at the same time.”
- Judy Green, CEO, Premier Sotheby’s International Realty
