Currently, SWL operates under the auspices of Hickory Stand United Methodist Church, who serves as our fiscal sponsor and supporter, lending space to meet along with a network of church family, including partner and advocate, Pastor Bryan Wilson. SWL is guided by the values and faith of it's founders, Kathy and Keith Gibby, who have invested their heart and soul into this project and are always around taking care of business on and off the farm. The farm and its products are tended by the SWL family.
It Started with Pigs
Still Waters Landing began in 2015 when founders, Pastor Bryan Wilson, Keith and Kathy Gibby met and prayed. Two weeks later Keith and Kathy Gibby, as well as cousin Brenda Wilson made portions of their farms available for an innovative food-and-faith-based ministry to serve our local community in the beautiful mountains of Hayesville, North Carolina. What began with two pregnant sows in a hillside dugout, has turned into a beautifully manicured 10-acre farm along the Hiwassee River with over 20 Berkshire pigs, greenhouses, gardens, chickens and so much more.
Still Waters Landing specializes in pasture-raised pork with humane treatment and environmentally sound practices. Our farm raises Berkshire pigs, an excellent choice which is known for its quality and taste. We also offer eggs fresh from our free-range chickens. In 2019, we hired a farm manager which expanded the farm to allow us to offer vegetables, herbs and seasonal CSA’s Harvest Shares. We believe in giving back and provide at least 10% back in pork and fresh produce to the local Clay County Food Pantry, Matt’s Ministry, as well as, host our annual Pig Pickin', a free community event. We are proud to serve communities within a 50-mile radius of Hayesville and look forward to extending our reach as we grow.
