For centuries the land upon which Blackberry Farm is situated has provided for its inhabitants. The Cherokee and early Appalachians learned how to cultivate these foothill soils and how to forage what was already abundant in the field, forest and stream.
Our goal is a small, diverse, sustainable family farm where we can gently and humanely raise food for our local region. All of our products are USDA inspected for safety, quality and freshness.
We have a commitment to sustainability, not only to the land but to ourselves and to those around us. This is why we grow all our vegetables and fruits with dedication and love, and are committed to selling only the best to you. Bloomsbury Farm is nestled in the hills between Smyrna and Nolensville,TN.
