Home: About


We are a small business community aiming to support a robust and sustainable local economy by providing new and expanding business with a dynamic, creative environment to grow. The unique opportunity to collaborate with like-minded folks within your working community facilitates and accelerates growth while also establishing strong roots in the Asheville community.



Whether its generating consciously grown food, re-purposing timber or recycling waste, our partners share a common bond to consider other humans and the planet.  We believe that by focusing our efforts and sharing resources we are able to work together to create an environment conducive to long-term growth.


Utilizing the remains of a derelict 28-acre ornamental greenhouse facility, we have put 100,000+ square feet of buildings into use without building a single structure. 

The environment and responsible land stewardship is a core value and priority of Smith Mill Works.  We are committed to the protection and conservation of our environment.


A variety of spaces to fit your growing needs.

Our Community Property 

Nestled within the beautiful mountains of Appalachia. Our beautiful 28-acre community is nestled just below Deaverview Mountain adjacent to the vibrant neighborhood of West Asheville. We share the inspiration of our natural environment with majestic mountain views and recharging time spent lounging by the pond and rambling down our forested walking trails. We are conveniently located 5 minutes from Haywood road  and only 15 minutes from the heart of downtown Asheville.
