FOR THRIVING COMMUNITIES SINCE 1897.
Our unique family of synergistic divisions enriches the quality of life
and community development in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
diverse company devoted to thoughtful growth and the economic well-being of our mountain home, Biltmore Farms has been a community leader in Western North Carolina for over a century. George Vanderbilt’s descendants, George H.V. Cecil and son John F.A.V. Cecil, continue this legacy of quality across all of the company’s divisions: Biltmore Farms Commercial, Biltmore Farms Communities, Biltmore Farms Homes and Biltmore Farms Hotels.
Biltmore Farms has evolved from the region’s largest independent dairy operation to a preeminent community development firm. Today Biltmore Farms continues its reputation of regional leadership through such forward-thinking accomplishments as the creation of Biltmore Park Town Square, the largest and most diverse mixed-use urban village in Asheville. Our company has designed some of the region’s most beautiful and viable master-planned communities.
We’re committed to preserving the natural beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains through our community involvement and business practices, including the construction of the Hilton Asheville Biltmore Park, the first new construction LEED-certified Hilton hotel in the country, featuring a large-scale rooftop solar water heating system. In addition, Biltmore Farms’ portfolio of nationally award-winning hotels carries on the Vanderbilt tradition of gracious hospitality.
THE FIVE TENETS THAT GUIDE US
Vanderbilt’s unique approach to community development distinguishes all that we do.
It’s a vision encompassed by these tenets:
By endorsing and supporting public, private and charter K-12 schools plus community colleges and universities, the region must grow its educated workforce for the benefit of all citizens.
From an emphasis on wellness and preventive healthcare to a superb tertiary hospital, Western North Carolina is a region known for its quality, affordable and accessible healthcare.
When a community grows, jobs are created. Positioning Western North Carolina as a location for the emerging knowledge-based, creative, innovative and entrepreneurial economy is vitally important to our citizens whom seek employment commensurate with their skills and life aspirations.
Arts & Culture
Understanding that we seek to be culturally satisfied as much as occupationally, elevating and advancing our local arts, music heritage and cultural institutions is enormously important to our region.
Environment / Quality of Life
With abiding respect for the many connections that link the quality of our lives to the surrounding landscape, dedication to environmental stewardship and to protecting and preserving the region’s natural resources and scenic mountain beauty is key to our community’s success.
