Farm To Consumers →

We want to make it easier to find healthier, and tastier food for you and your family. We offer easy and varied choices. You can choose catagories like farmers' markets, CSAs, farm stands, or by product, and you can select counties, or search the whole database. You can even combine a leisure day trip in our beautiful countryside with a gourmet destination. We hope you can use the guide, along with the magazine, as a resource to the agricultural bounties of Middle Tennessee.

CSA's →

The term CSA refers to community supported agriculture. Many farms have developed CSA programs to help make it simple for consumers to get their hands on locally grown, often organic foodstuff. The money paid by consumers to take part in the programs also helps support the farms and make farming a more viable way to make a living.

They can very widely in the rules they follow, some require local growers, some allow goods to be brought in from anywhere. They can range from a few tents in a wide place in the road to a modern pavilion with restaurants and other attractions.

Local Grocers & Farm Stores →

Tennessee is growing by leaps and bounds. A new grocery chain seems to be coming to town every few months. However, there are a few folks out there who still run a small, neighborhood and/or specialty store. Some focus on local producers and locally made artisan goods, while others are farm stores which have grown to include not only their own products, but those of other farms and producers. These jewels of their community are worth the effort to support.
