Barn Door Cidery

Barn Door Ciderworks and Root Cause Farm invite those curious about combating hunger, the farm or the cidery to their first fundraiser on Nov. 18.

Barn Door Ciderworks and Root Cause Farm will be joining forces to fight community hunger Nov. 18, during a fundraiser at the Ciderworks, just 20 minutes southeast of downtown Asheville.

The event will kick off Root Cause Farm’s year-end appeal, Giving Tuesdays.

Root Cause Farm is excited to greet visitors and share information about the organization, as well as ways people can become involved in combatting hunger through getting their hands in the soil, participating in garden workshops and making financial contributions.

The farm’s mission is to grow community solutions to hunger and work toward a just, equitable and resilient food system where all types of hunger are nourished.

Root Cause Farm distributes free produce grown on the farm, as well as redistributes produce from partners, provides free education about garden practices, and provides land access through its community garden.

“Root Cause Farm is not just a place where we grow food, but a place where we can gather as a community to connect with the land and with each other,” said Becca Malloy, Root Cause’s outreach and development coordinator.

The Barn Door is excited to host its first fundraiser for its farm neighbor. A portion of the evening’s proceeds will be donated to Root Cause Farm.

Barn Door Ciderworks co-owner Katie Moore shared why the partnership evolved: “We’re so happy to partner with a laudable, local organization that shares our values of growing healthy food, engaging the community in supporting people less fortunate, and preserving farmland.”

During the fundraiser, Barn Door Ciderworks’ taproom will offer its regular menu, including cider, beer, wine and non-alcoholic drinks, as well as a small-bites menu of food made on site.

“The pandemic certainly presented us with some challenges as a new business, and we know many community members have dealt with a very difficult year,” said Dan Folwer, co-owner of Barn Door Ciderworks. “We wanted to support a worthy cause that directly benefits the Fairview community. We’re hopeful that folks will join us in our efforts.”

Barn Door Ciderworks opened its doors in November 2020. It is a small-batch cidery located in Fairview, with a focus on traditional, barrel-aged, dry cider. In addition to cider, the taproom features one to two local beers on tap, wine and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as a small-bites food menu.

Barn Door Ciderworks is located at 23 Lytle Road in Fletcher. The event will take place from 4-7 p.m.

Tickets are not required. In good weather, the Ciderworks has a large yard, but space is limited if the weather is bad.
