Our Legacy

From Biltmore’s inception, George Vanderbilt provided the very best for his family and friends, from produce to meat, wine, and more. His commitment to quality and vision of Biltmore as a self-sustaining estate inspired the establishment of Biltmore Grown. Proud of our agricultural heritage, we are dedicated to offering the highest-quality premium, pasture-based products. By purchasing our products, you not only become part of Biltmore’s rich history, you also support the preservation of this working estate.

Biltmore Grown Philosophy

At Biltmore Grown, we pride ourselves on the superb quality of the estate-raised products born and responsibly raised on our 8,000 acres. We are committed to the wise use of resources, and to the long-term maintenance of sustainable farming operations.

We are dedicated to humanely raising livestock on lush pastures with top-quality grains while abstaining from growth hormones and growth-promoting antibiotics. Finally, we value environmental stewardship and view it as a natural extension of George Vanderbilt’s original vision for his self-sustaining estate.

Biltmore Grown:
Up Close

Our Farm to Table Tour & Taste—the only tour that offers guest access to the estate’s pastoral West Side—is a fascinating behind-the-scenes exploration of our agricultural operations. You’ll visit Biltmore’s Black Angus beef cattle and Berkshire hog facilities, as well as our hydroponic greenhouses, and picturesque vineyards. After seeing how we continue to honor our legacy of sustainability, you’ll sample fresh estate-grown artisanal fare and a glass of Biltmore wine!
