We began offering Middle Tennessee farm tours in 2004 when we were asked to participate in the organization of farm tours in Dickson County, Tennessee.
Agri-tourism is an up and coming industry that is actively nurtured here in Tennessee, becoming an increasingly important factor in small Tennessee farms just like ours thriving and growing.
We have been actively involved every since, working with the Dickson County Chamber of Commerce and other community leaders to encourage visits to our county.
We offer a variety of tours, including large school groups and field trips. Some are scheduled and arranged through the Dickson County Chamber of Commerce. We can also schedule tours directly; please contact us for more information about available dates for tours.
Prices depend on the number of participants. We do however have a minimum fee of $20; we love doing tours and meeting people on the farm but we’re a working farm and time is a very valuable commodity.
Basic Middle Tennessee Farm Tours
On our most popular tour we take visitors around the farm and introduce them to the animals and crops of our farm.
In the spring and early summer, or Tennessee farm tours include holding baby newly hatched chicks, petting lambs and kids and preparing for and planting herbs and garden vegetables.
In fall, harvesting crops and observing sheep shearing can be options.
On this farm tour, we do blacksmith and hand-spinning demonstrations dressed in the clothing that someone in the mid eighteen hundreds would wear.
We talk about farm life in that period and Tennessee history as well, offering a look into what life was really like on a Tennessee farm centuries ago,
On these Tennessee farm tours, we conduct nature walks and discuss and see wildflowers and other native plants. Conservation and land stewardship is discussed.
Field trips are available in any of the topics above. Many science topics are interjected into the discussions.
