Tennessee’s agricultural history is an integral part of our identity; here we have always treasured our rich farmlands and the wise farming methods that have nurtured them. Some of these independent farms have opened to the public, and in so doing, have helped reignite a sense of connection to the farms and farmers who sustain each and every one of us.
If you want to experience some of the beautiful farms and knowledgeable farming families in Middle Tennessee, we recommend these U-Pick farms. Take some time out this summer and fall and get a feel for where your food begins.
Please note that these times are ALWAYS subject to change. Both the weather and the availability of fruits and vegetables can always affect hours and days of operation. We recommend that you call the farm you’re interested in directly before heading out to pick.
June 1: Brew at the Zoo
There’s always a show happening in Music City. Any time of the day or night, you can stroll through downtown and enjoy our live music scene. What further sets Nashville apart as a true jewel when compared to other music scenes throughout the country is the dedication our local artists show toward making live music available FOR FREE to locals and guests all year long.
Here are a few of our favorite places where you can hear music for free or cheap here in Middle Tennessee. We hope to see you out at the parks and on the dance floors!

ABOUT BERRY HILL
Though it is less than one square mile in area, Berry Hill has a big personality. Here you’ll find tree-lined streets dotted with quaint cottages, small parks with playgrounds, and one of a kind shops and restaurants. Murals cover the fences and brick walls of some of the businesses, giving the neighborhood a unique creative atmosphere.
During the month of April, we want to take a pause and focus our attention on our local area and the amazing philanthropies that work in Middle Tennessee. We are so proud of these organizations that dedicate their time selflessly to improving the lives of others.
All throughout this month, we want to be gearing up and planning for a very special day, May 2nd. On this day, our community comes together to participate in what is known as The Big Payback.
