Farm Tour, Monday, April 19, 6-8 PM $30/person

$30.00

Join us Monday, April 19, from 6-8 PM for our first Farm Tour of the season.To allow for social distancing we are inviting only 20 participants rather than the normal 30. We will have hand sanitizer available and require that each wears a mask.We’ll gather at the Homeplace built over 150 years ago and hear Roy tell Civil War stories and talk of agricultural practices in the 1800’s.  We’ll see what the dahlia beds look like in April and learn what will happen there next. Then on to the hoop house, the prettiest spot on the farm this time of year, which is full of flowers that are blooming or just ready to bloom including ranunculus, anemone, sweet peas, campanula, snapdragons, bells of Ireland and more. From there we’ll drive to Aunt Willie’s where the lilac and viburnum are blooming and peonies, mock orange, and other woodies are budded up and ready. Linda will explain the tricks of cutting and storing peonies and we’ll take a peek into the cooler, bucket shed, chicken coop/flower studio, and Aunt Willie’s house. We’ll have a bouquet started for everyone but each can add to it. Cost of the tour is $30 and includes lots of history, growing information, and a ball jar bouquet. Bring any questions you have related to farming and we’ll try to provide answers and advice. Bring nippers or scissors if you have them so you can snip a few blooms as you wander. Come ready to learn and hopefully make a friend or two. We love our farm tour groups as we love sharing our farm life with others.

We’ll begin at the Homeplace, 299 Bruce Doan Rd., Blountville, 37617 which is the driveway on the left just AFTER the hoop house Pull down the driveway towards the white farmhouse and park anywhere in the grass. I’ll try to remember to put balloons on the mailbox. Tours generally last about 2 hours but you’re welcome to stay an extra minute to hike up to the cabin if there’s enough daylight.
