HORSE FARM LIVING IN WNC

In general, professionals recommend two acres for the first horse and an additional acre for each additional horse (e.g., five acres for four horses). And, of course, more land is always better depending on the foraging quality of your particular property (70% vegetative cover is recommended). In Western North Carolina, homebuyers with horses can truly Live the Life You Choose. Homes for sale in the area include hobby farms, planned equestrian communities, and urban living near world-class horse facilities.

LIVE THE LIFE YOU CHOOSE

Of the many different ways to Live the Life You Choose in Western North Carolina, one way is uniquely woven into our history: the rural lifestyle. The rural lifestyle offers unparalleled opportunities for connecting with nature, stewardship of the land, and living a self-reliant outdoor lifestyle. We describe the rural lifestyle as living outside the city limits on three or more acres of minimally restricted land. Areas throughout the region offer space to stretch and grow—sometimes closer to city centers than you would imagine.

Yancey County, Burnsville, North Carolina Horse Farms

Yancey County, NC is an elevated county with some of the highest mountains to be found in Western North Carolina (and in the eastern U.S., for that matter). It makes sense, then, that the county offers living situations and equestrian experiences that go above and beyond the norm.

Located in the center of the county, Burnsville is 35 miles north of Asheville and 50 miles west of Johnson City, Tenn. Just a few miles from Burnsville looms Mount Mitchell, the tallest peak east of the Mississippi, reaching to 6,684 feet above sea level.

In fact, according to the 2007 Census of Agriculture, Yancey is one of the top-rated counties in North Carolina for livestock. Looking at a few of the available properties below, you can see why:
