In looking for new outdoor places to visit in 2009, I found this handy online brochure about farm-related places to visit/things to do in Southeast Tennessee. Scroll down below the map for farms, festivals (descriptions, website info and directions).

There are also tips for visiting these places:

Great links and info as usual LauraC!
I can't see the original link because of it being PDF, but did you happen to find similar for East or North East TN as well?

Thanks, Laura C. I've already found a cafe in Athens that I plan to visit this summer. Love farms and gardens. Thanks for your research.

There's an excellent website to find farms, farm activities, farmers markets, etc. all across Tennessee. You can also look by county.
Activities (http://www.picktnproducts.org/activities/index.html - broken link)
We're fortunate in Tennessee that the state recognizes the need to support and help the small family farm and has lots of programs in place to keep them healthy.

For more rural sites to visit, consider following a quilt trail. A great way to find out more about Tennessee and Appalachian history.

No, I was specifically looking for Tennessee farms that open their gates to the public. That's how I came across it.

You know, you can download a free Adobe Acrobat Reader. They have always been free. It will allow you to read pdf documents but not compose one yourself.

Appreciate these, thanks. I looked at the first link. I've found that some use the term "farm" lightly. I don't think if you have a bed and breakfast and there's a barn on the grounds, you should be calling yourself a farm or if you have a historic gristmill on the property it makes you a farm. So, you have to check out each link which I will do.
