A hidden gem located just over the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. Create a wellhouse-inspired spa experience, dine at their James Beard Award-winning restaurant rooted in Appalachian ingredients from around the region and farm ingredients harvested just a few feet from the front door or sip a famous cocktail curated by their beverage team known as the “First Drink In Heaven.”
One thing that really makes Blackberry Farm unique is the farmstead.
“Since its inception, the Farmstead has been a favorite gathering place for guests, chefs, and artisans alike. With a vast number of vegetables from our gardens and foraged goods from our surroundings, our chefs and artisans have the “raw materials” to provide an array of culinary creations. Our gardeners grow vegetables that offer endless colors, textures and tastes. Our forager, livestock team and our local agricultural community provide milk for our cheese maker, meat for our butcher, as well as wild mushrooms, blackberries and ramps for our preservationist.”- BlackBerry Farm
