New Discoveries To Be Found Around Every Corner
It is not fall until you’ve been to the pumpkin patch. The sea of orange, visible in every direction, and kids excitedly hunting for the perfect pumpkin. There’s something magical about the initiation of fall with such a trip. What if the pumpkin patch could provide an opportunity for your kids to learn something new about beautiful, healthy food? There are 45 varieties of pumpkins with different shapes, sizes, and colors. They all have seeds to be roasted and soft orange flesh to be eaten, but each one brings something unique to the table. Allow me to introduce you to a few of these extraordinary pumpkins and the specialties they have to offer. All of these pumpkins are incredibly nutritious! One cup of cooked pumpkin (any variety) contains about 50 calories and is packed with a variety of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They contain a large amount of Vitamin A, which helps boost the immune system and support strong eyesight. More

Like Bees to the Honeycomb Collaborative
ashville Farmers’ Market artisans, farmers and chefs collaborate to make original products to sell in their booths or in the market shops and restaurants; the synergy goes unnoticed unless partners choose to recognize each other. This is a story of one group, but many vendors work together; it is the natural inclination of the farmers’ market community. Central to the Honeycomb Collaborative is pure, raw Tennessee honey harvested in the mountains of the Cherokee National Forest by Strange Honey Farm. Gary Strange and his family manage 1700-2000 honeybee hives using natural management techniques. Carol Hagen has worked exclusively with Gary Strange since 2014. More

For most of the last decade, Middle Tennessee—and Nashville in particular—has experienced a massive growth spurt that has resulted in a population explosion pushing the number of residents to around two million people in the metro area, an economic boom and a tourism boost that shows no sign of slowing any time soon. But the influx of tourists and the throngs of new people calling Middle Tennessee home has led to more than increases in pedal tavern rentals, bachelorette party bar tabs and Airbnb rates. It has been an opportunity for niche tourism markets to enjoy more success, as well. More

I’m a millennial who moonlights on weekends as a promoter of goat cheese!
My mission is to entice shoppers to sample this creamy, tangy, twangy delicacy form of cheese. Goat cheese is incredibly satisfying. There are many different types of goat dairy products, with goat cheese being the most well known. Chevre, pronounced “chev”, is the French (or fancy) name for spreadable, soft goat cheeses. These cheeses have a milder taste, but may come in many different flavors from sweet to savory. It doesn’t stop there; you can try goat Feta cheese, goat Gouda cheese and many rolled goat cheese logs. Goat dairy also includes goat cheese yogurt and goat milk. More
