We love our farm every season but dahlia season is extra special! Farm tours are a great way to see the farm in action and there’s so much going on in high summer. We will start the tour this Tuesday evening at the Homeplace (399 Bruce Doan Rd., Blountville, 37617) where we will share a bit about the old farm including stories from the Civil War times when the Homeplace was being built, then we’ll tour the dahlia beds and cut a stem of two for your ball jar bouquet. We’ll pop into the hoop house next to see what’s left blooming, then on to Aunt Willie’s house, the chicken coop/flower studio,  and all the flower and perennial beds – talking flowers and farm the whole time. We’ll have jars ready for you with foliage and several blooms, but you can nip a few dahlias to add to your bouquet. Cost is $25 and includes tour, a ball jar bouquet, and a packet of seeds from Erin Benzakein of Floret! Tour will meet rain or shine so bring an umbrella if rain looks imminent but forecast says sunny!

Prepayment not required so you can pay when you come this Tuesday, August 14 (cash or check only). Please e-mail auntwillies@gmail.com or text at 423-367-0361 to check availability as most tours fill up. (Limit 30 participants). Bring a pair of hand nippers if you have and dress for a run down old farm.
