Farm Tour – Sunday, Oct 22, 3:00-4:30 p.m. Cost $20, includes ball jar bouquet

We love our farm every season and farm tours are a good way to see the farm in action.  We will start at the Homeplace (399 Bruce Doan Rd., Blountville, 37617) where Roy shares 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, hoop house, chicken coop, Aunt Willie’s house and all the flower and perennial beds talking flowers and farm the whole time. We’ll have jars ready for you so you can nip a few blooms from the dahlia bed and elsewhere to create your own ball jar bouquet. If we have more frost, we will still have a few flowers and lots of foliage from the hoop house and fields. Cost is $20 and includes tour and ball jar bouquet. Tour will meet rain or shine so bring an umbrella if rain looks imminent. Plenty of run down old buildings to duck into as well.

Since this first tour is short notice, prepayment not required, you can pay when you come Sunday (cash or check only) but please e-mail auntwillies@gmail.com or text at 423-367-0361 to make sure there’s room. Limit 25 participants. Bring a pair of hand nippers if you have.

Garden groups or other special groups wanting their own tour must meet the 12 person minimum and must be prepaid.Dates must be approved but generally Sunday-Tuesday best days for tours.
