Blackberry Farm: A Southern Treasure

If you're looking for almost everything the South has to offer--in terms of food, scenery, hospitality, and life at a much slower pace--Blackberry Farm in East Tennessee has everything you'll ever need. 

Tucked into the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, Blackberry Farm is a 6000 acre resort that features world-class accommodations, unmatched Southern hospitality, and more beautiful scenery than you can possibly take in during one visit. 

Back in November, my wife and I took advantage of their annual two-day sale in November to book our trip for mid-January. It was one of the most relaxing and refreshing vacations we've ever been on.

While there, I was fortunate enough to visit with Executive Chef Cassidee Dabney for our brand-new Southerner podcast. She was generous enough to gift us a with a tasting menu that turned out to be one of the best meals of my life.

Pictures can’t do a visit like this justice, but I tried my best. Here are a few select images to recap our trip to Blackberry Farm—one of the South’s true gems.

If you have the opportunity to book at trip to Blackberry Farm, please do it. This place, y’all, it’s a treasure.
