The first guidebook of its kind for the Volunteer State, Farm
leads food lovers, families, locals, and
tourists on a lively tour of more than 360 farms and farm-related
attractions, all open to the public and all visited by Memphis
natives Paul and Angela Knipple. Here are the perfect opportunities
to browse a farmers' market, pick blueberries, tour a small-batch
distillery, stay at an elegant inn, send the kids to a camp where
they'll eat snacks of homemade biscuits with farm-fresh honey--and
so much more. Arranged by the three Grand Divisions of Tennessee
(East, Middle, and West) and nine categories of interest, the
listings invite readers to connect with Tennessee's farms,
emphasizing establishments that are independent, sustainable, and
active in public education and conservation.
Sidebars tell how to find pop-up markets, showcase local food
initiatives, and celebrate the work and lives of local farmers.
Thirteen recipes gathered by the authors on their Tennessee travels
offer farm-fresh tastes.
