We love our farm every season but Spring is just so fresh and clean! Farm tours are a great way to see the farm in action and there’s so much planting and growing going on in May. We will start the tour at the Homeplace (399 Bruce Doan Rd., Blountville, 37617) where wewill 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 hoop house where sweet peas and snapdragons are blooming and lots more will be getting ready to bloom. Then we’ll move 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 perhaps nip a few blossoms to add to create your own ball jar 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. Plenty of run down old buildings to duck into as well.
