A working farm has been part of Biltmore Estate since our beginning in 1895. That legacy continues today. Biltmore operates its farm and field-to-table program with estate-grown greens, berries, eggs, beef, and lamb, and partnerships with farmers in Western North Carolina for locally-sourced trout, cheese, beef, and pork for our restaurants.
