The first thing you might notice on a Tennessee farm is the passion the farmer has for the land. As farmers here have opened up their farms to welcome visitors, that passion has fueled creativity. In the fall on Oakes Farm in Corryton, you’ll have tons of fun trying to find your way through a gigantic life-size puzzle, a corn maze with challenges and checkpoints. Take a covered hay wagon to the patch to find that perfect pumpkin. At Arcy Acres Christmas Tree Farm in Crossville, add merriment to the holidays with a visit to Santa when choosing your own tree. Get friendly with the fish at Pickwick Catfish Farm, with over 20 acres of water, for a different kind of farm.
Tempt your taste buds with sweet fruit or heirloom produce picked ripe from the vine, or treat the farm animals to a snack from your hand. Milk a cow, pick a tomato, gather an egg, dig a potato. When you’re down on the farm, you can’t help but get into fun.
Go on a happy hayride and have a jam-packed day of fun. Make furry friends at a petting zoo. Get a feel for Tennessee’s great country life and savor fresh-from-the-farm produce.
