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.
