As a seventh generation native of Madison County, NC I have had the opportunity to grow up in an area full of mountain tradition. I have always had an interest in things of times past and have grown a passion for the art of blacksmithing. I am proud to be raising my family on a small homestead farm in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains.
I enjoy sharing the traditions of our mountains. I have had the opportunity to share the art of blacksmithing with many vacationing guests, family and friends over the years. I hope to have the opportunity to share my love of forging with you.

This was hands down one of the coolest things I’ve ever done. On a personal level, as a scholar of the ancient world who specializes in the Iron Age, I knew this was something I had to try. I now have a much keener appreciation for the things I study. Jeremy was a great host, instructing us in the ins and outs of the trade. He helped out when needed, but mostly stepped back to let us learn by experience. It was a little crazy to think the railroad spike I started with became a beautiful knife in just a few hours. If you’re concerned with safety, I can tell you I felt safe the whole time. Despite the fact you are working with extremely hot metal and high temperatures, all the proper tools were provided along with instructions on how to use them. Safety glasses and ear plugs were also provided. The forge is very well ventilated and you can easily step outside for fresh air should you need. There’s no pressure to go fast, so you can take your own pace and not feel like you’ll make a mistake or get hurt because you are rushing. I highly recommend this experiencing. If you are considering forging, go to Quiver Full Farm. It’s simply the best!

This was a really great experiencefor my two sons. Jeremy knows what he is doing and did an excellent job of teaching each guest individually with their project. He was very friendly and told great stories of his blacksmithing experiences. He did a great job of teaching about the different tools...what they were used for and how to use them.My boys came away with a greater understanding of blacksmithing and they are so proud of the meat cleavers they made. I'm excited to use their creations in the kitchen!

Incredible experience! You actually walk away and say, “I made this!” The time went by quickly and the area was so peaceful. The hosts are the type of people that make you feel welcome and you could spend the day learning about them and what they do. Great people and a great experience.
