Description
Golden Fleece is a fairytale, born of a community rich in history and filled with a love of food & culture. Tucked away in the rolling mountains of Grovewood in Asheville North Carolina, Golden Fleece is a whimsical ode to the earth and the bounty of quality ingredients it provides. It is a celebration of slow cooked wild game, crackling fires, rustic recipes, and the beauty of naked produce.
