Full description
Get out of Nashville for the day and check out a local farm while getting acquainted with the culture and traditions that embody the American South. Go on a tour that connects farm-curious food lovers with the farmers, ranchers, and craftspeople of rural Tennessee. See firsthand how food is grown and hear from the hard-working individuals who bring food to tables across the country every day.

Drive from the pickup point in Cross Plains in a not-so-shiny Chevy Suburban that your local guide refers to as "dirty, but in a good way…like cool dirty.” Spend the day riding around telling stories, meeting farmers, and visiting parts of town known only to the locals. You are sure to meet a few colorful Southerners and tour a whole crop of farms.

Benefit from the guidance of a local whose family has lived on and loved the land of Robertson county for many generations. A natural-born storyteller in the true Southern tradition, your guide will tell you the tales she heard from her grandaddy as well as the ones she heard only yesterday. 

After touring the farms around the area, savor a traditional Tennessee lunch at a favorite locally-owned restaurant. Stop at Thomas Drugs, a town staple that has been in business since the early 1900s and has the best hobo float in Tennessee, or Tesha's Cafe where cafeteria meat-and-three is prepared every day for the locals and macaroni and cheese is considered a vegetable.
