Raven Rocks Farm Location
Raven Rocks Farm is a 13 acre farm located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, on the west slope of the escarpment. The name is taken from rock outcroppings at the crest of the Ridge, bordering the property. Raven Rocks Farm is on the eastern continental divide. Brewer’s Creek, a headwater stream of the New River (part of the Mississippi River watershed), flows along the edge of the farm. The watershed of the Yadkin River is only a few hundred feet from the farm’s boundary. The land is in the Aho Community of Watauga County, between Boone and Blowing Rock, North Carolina. The farm offers a panoramic view of Flat Top Mountain. Elk Knob and Snake Mountain are also visible. Grandfather Mountain can be seen from the crest of the Ridge.
