Overview

The first guidebook of its kind for the Volunteer State, Farm Fresh Tennessee leads food lovers, families, locals, and tourists on a lively tour of more than 360 farms and farm-related attractions, all open to the public and all visited by Memphis natives Paul and Angela Knipple. Here are the perfect opportunities to browse a farmers' market, pick blueberries, tour a small-batch distillery, stay at an elegant inn, send the kids to a camp where they'll eat snacks of homemade biscuits with farm-fresh honey--and so much more. Arranged by the three Grand Divisions of Tennessee (East, Middle, and West) and nine categories of interest, the listings invite readers to connect with Tennessee's farms, emphasizing establishments that are independent, sustainable, and active in public education and conservation.
Sidebars tell how to find pop-up markets, showcase local food initiatives, and celebrate the work and lives of local farmers. Thirteen recipes gathered by the authors on their Tennessee travels offer farm-fresh tastes.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I was absolutely delighted when the book Farm Fresh Tennessee came across my desk to review for Tennessee Libraries. I have used it to discover new and interesting food options in my region, and plan to have the book in hand when next I venture out of my corner of Tennessee. . . . Recommended for public libraries and any library with a collection on regional food or cooking."—Marie Jones, Tennessee Libraries

"If local simply suits your style, then you may want to take a look at a new Southern Gateways Guide by Paul and Angela Knipple. . . . The first guidebook of its kind for Tennessee, it leads food lovers, families, locals and tourists on a lively tour of more than 360 farms and farm-related attractions."—Chattanooga Magazine

"A celebration of southern farmers' ingenuity and successes, as well as an introduction to a new crop of farmers."—Urban Farm

"When you plan your next road trip . . . [carry] a copy of Farm Fresh Tennessee along with you as a guide."—Nashville Scene

"This guide will make readers eager to search out the nearest Tennessee farm, not to mention make them hungry. Recommended for foodies, tourists, and natives who are ready to eat their way across the farms of Tennessee."—Library Journal

Library Journal
Here Tennessee natives Paul and Angela Knipple (The World in a Skillet: A Food Lover's Tour of the New American South) share their intimate knowledge of their state's farms. Their title is a guide to Tennessee, but one for travelers looking for more than the standard tourist fare. Readers will find all the expected guidebook features, such as price guides and contact information, but they also get homey descriptions of various farms, stands, and restaurants throughout the state. A few more maps (to minimize flipping back and forth) and perhaps larger headings would make navigating easier. Still, this guide will make readers eager to search out the nearest Tennessee farm, not to mention make them hungry. VERDICT Recommended for foodies, tourists, and natives who are ready to eat their way across the farms of Tennessee.—Sara Miller, CNN Lib., Atlanta
