About the Host

Blackberry Farm

What started with a wild blackberry bramble, blossomed into this completely luxurious, farmstead on the range, where master gardeners share their craft, fragrant earthy truffles are found and delicate, smoky whiskeys are tasted aplenty.

With a beautiful bounty of recently harvested crops and a plethora of perfect beverage pairings nestled at the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, answer the call of this ideal idyll for your next intimate gathering, wedding, getaway or seasonal holiday party.
