ABOUT KELLY & BEN LOVEJOY OF FAR FLUNG FARM
Kelly is passionate about show dogs, gardening, cooking, and entertaining. Her lifelong passion for dogs led her to become a dog trainer, handler, groomer, and judge. She’s a certified Master Gardener and spends nights dreaming of landscape design on the farm. A former restaurant owner, she loves to cook and host others in her home. She is a chicken enthusiast and will happily introduce you to each hen on the farm.
Ben is a retired Air Force Officer and passionate cyclist. An early fan of music and movies, he’s been a serial learner for both arts. Since age 20 when he first tasted something other than his mother’s Gallo Cold Duck, he’s immersed himself in the study, tasting, and buying of wine. He’s traveled much of the country with Kelly and has been to 11 other countries around the globe.
He loves the mountains, Far Flung Farm, and the life he and Kelly envision creating together.
Kelly and her family were some of the nicest people you could hope to meet. They live in a beautiful house that they built themselves. The house sits on an expansive farm far away from any noise pollution. When I arrived I was greeted with a fresh cup of tea, and good conversation. Kelly was very welcoming, and made sure I had everything I needed for a successful/enjoyable stay.
The campsite sits at the base of the farm right next to a stream. The site has a fire pit, room for multiple tents, and a nice table with six chairs. It's a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. For a campsite, you can't ask for more. I think it's safe to say that I'll definitely be returning!
Kelly at Far Flung Farm made gorgeous flower arrangements for my big 50th birthday bash. They helped make the place look festive and fun, and the flowers lasted for quite a while afterwards, too. I highly recommend her.
I only got a few photos of the flowers we got from Kelly for our anniversary party. It was a whirlwind of a day, and I forgot to take more! But my arrangements were gorgeous!! Everyone commented on them! And my parents were tickled that I found the flowers locally and arranged them myself!
Thanks to Kelly and her Far Flung Farm for making it a very special day!
Serene. If I had to describe our stay at Far Flung Farm in one word that's the word I'd choose. We loved our stay there, starting from the moment we turned into the driveway and were greeted by our delightful host, Kelly, her crew of free roaming happy chickens, and the sweet aroma of new mown hay. She offered us eggs if we needed them, and let us pick some fresh basil for dinner from among the many varieties in her abundant garden. The farm is located in a sweet little valley, about 20 minutes from Asheville. The view of the surrounding mountains includes Cold Mountain off in the distance. Our campsite was nestled in a corner of the property, next to a little stream whose gentle music soothed us through the quiet night. The firefly show was an added bonus. Toilet, shower, and water were available in Kelly and Ben's warm and welcoming home. If you're looking for something off the beaten path, but close to Ashville, the Smokies, and all that this region has to offer, this is the place for you. We'd come back to Far Flung Farm in a heartbeat.
This was the second time that my boyfriend and I stayed at Far Flung Farm, and we would definitely go back for a 3rd, 4th, and 5th time. Kelly is such a kind human and made us feel so welcome - she even sent us off with some croissants on our last morning! The property is gorgeous and is surrounded by mountains and a a small creek. The house was built by the family and is so bright and colorful! Kelly and her family have two beautiful dogs, Luna and Preacher, who are so sweet, as well as chickens, and flocks of hummingbirds! Overall, the atmosphere here is enchanting. I would absolutely recommend this site!

Kelly and Ben were fabulous hosts!! Their home and property is absolutely beautiful! We set up camp in the corner of their property with a beautiful, babbling creek behind us. Each morning we awoke to the sounds of the creek, the rooster crowing in the distance, birds chirping, and beautiful foggy mountains. Kelly and Ben have beautiful flower gardens and lots of cute things to add character to their lovely home. It's private, but close enough to their home if you need to use facilities. They were very accommodating and helpful during our stay. Their home is about 20 mins from Asheville and 20 mins from a cute little town called Waynesville. We had a blast!! We hope to have the opportunity to go back sometime!! Thanks so much Kelly and Ben!!!
Kelly and Ben’s Far Flung Farm is a wonderful place to stay! I was greeted by the whole family upon my arrival, including their two pups, Luna and Preacher! Kelly had some business out of town and had to leave for the duration of my stay, but I was left in Ben’s capable hands! He checked in every once in a while just to see how everything was, but not so often as to disturb me. He even recommended some places for me to go mountain biking (which is why I took the whole trip in the first place)!
The peaceful campsite sits at the back of their beautiful property, nestled in a stunning valley, right next to a small creek which provides some of the best white noise to help you fall asleep.
Overall, I highly recommend staying at Kelly and Ben’s Far Flung Farm! You won’t regret it!
My friend and I stayed here while on a road trip in the southeast and had a LOVELY experience. Kelly and her husband were some of the kindest people I've come across while traveling. They were open, welcoming, and made us feel beyond comfortable coming into their home and onto their property. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at the Far Flung Farm and will definitely make our way back!
I've loved my flower arrangements from Far Flung Farm. They are exquisite, and Kelly puts so much care and professionalism into both growing and arranging the beautiful flowers. She is highly responsive to questions and will work with you to create arrangements that you will love and are a great value. I'm looking forward to Spring and Summer and more flowers from this gem of a flower farm.
