We encourage you to follow our blog and subscribe to our YouTube Channel “HiBar Ranch” where we blog and VLOG daily on farm life and share thoughts and moments that capture life through the lens of simpler down to earth living often through poetry and art. We share information and insights that help others transition toward a more sustainable and simplified life.
HiBar is a Smoky Mountain East Tennessee heritage farm and Victorian lodge that applies old world craftsmanship to inspired artistic pursuits. Our rustic mountain estate is based in the heart of the Smoky Mountains. We are a full service operating organic farm, wood mill, dairy operation and fiber arts studio. We share our journey and learning/wisdom with all of you.
We believe in living close to the land in an organic way and creating expressions of beauty and elegance using all natural forms: wood, wool & fiber, leather, bone, metal, stone, gourds, natural medicine & healing. Along with livestock we run a wood mill and operate a home dairy. From these endeavors many artistic creations are made; from organic goat milk soaps, natural salves and medicinal teas, to custom milling and unique one of a kind furniture and fiber arts creations for fashion and home.
Our artists in residence are all members of one of Tennessee’s oldest families; first settling in Tennessee before Tennessee became a state in 1797. Our ancestors carved the first paths here as long hunters and scouts and are family and co-path breakers with Daniel Boone. You can learn more about our family’s amazing East Tennessee history and it’s inter-relations with many of America’s founding people and doctrines by following our sister site Davis Family Pioneers Website & Blog. You will also be able to switch back to this site from there should you choose with links in that site back to HiBar Creations. You can also see some of the top blog posts from that site lower down on the right of this page and click there to access the blog.
We raise heritage livestock including Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats, Alpine dairy goats, Nubian dairy goats, Boer meat goats, Navajo Churro sheep, heritage breed poultry, Australian Shepherd herding dogs and run a custom logging mill and home dairy. We also have on the farm quarter horses, miniature donkeys, ducks, bees, pheasants and turkeys.
We sell fiber and wood arts, livestock, milling and medicinal products and also offer massage therapy and art/nature wellness classes here at our farm. You can learn more about our products and services by going to the menu bar above in both products and services and also for sale.
We are a multi-generational farm focusing on raising heritage breed livestock. Welcome to our farm! We hope you enjoy your time with us.
