On 12 acres of rich, organic soil, we work to accomplish those goals while growing a variety of select and heirloom varieties of produce, fruits and herbs. All burst with flavor, color, aroma and nutrition—a feast for all the senses!

The lovely folks from Margot Cafe & Bar and from Marche gave us an incredible morning of work. With all their helping hands we weeded a hoop house of kale, prepped a field for early bean sowing, planted a field of fingerling potatoes & did some harvesting. Now we just have to convince them to put us to work in the kitchen!

Many thanks to Matthew Neal of Arugula Star Farm for a great introduction to regular tractor maintenance. We hosted a morning workshop to get to know our tractors a little better and had great conversation about using tractors to maximize efficiency on the farm. We ended the day feeling inspired to keep up our regular maintenance routine!

The Nashville Farmers Market and Local Table Magazine hosted the second Annual Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Fair. The event gave people a chance to meet farmers, discuss growing methods, harvest schedules and pick up locations. We loved getting to meet lots of folks from around Nashville and to talk about our upcoming CSA with them.
