Angela and I are thrilled to announce the publication of our second book, Farm Fresh Tennessee: The Go-To Guide to Great Farmers’ Markets, Farm Stands, Farms, U-Picks, Kids’ Activities, Lodging, Dining, Wineries, Breweries, Distilleries, Festivals, and More.
We spent a year traveling from one end of our great state to the other, visiting nearly 400 great agritourism destinations. We had fun at festivals, on farm tours, at producers of cheese, sorghum, country ham, and more. We dined in restaurants and shopped in stores that offer local products. There were things that surprised us like kangaroos on a cotton farm and cranberries in east Tennessee.
The thing that didn’t surprise us was the graciousness and warmth of our fellow Tennesseans. All across the state, there are people working to provide us with food, clothing, and shelter, but they will take time out of their busy lives to help others understand what they do and why they do it.
Farm Fresh Tennessee is a resource for everyone who eats their food on a wooden table while wearing cotton or wool clothes. Any and all of those products may have come from Tennessee agriculture. Families looking for an adventure for the kids or couples looking for a romantic getaway will find options here.
We also encourage you to visit the official website for the book. We will be updating the site with new places to go as well as any closings that may occur. If you have any questions or suggestions for places to visit, you can contact us there.
