Happy Easter from Blackberry Farm! I just spent an amazing holiday week in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. Blackberry Farm is a magical place with the most incredible sounds, smells and sights. I can’t say enough about the food+wine, service, activities and accommodations. Our cottage in the woods, named Leather Britches, came with its own golf cart which the kids promptly took ownership of and explored all the wonders on the property. I was obsessed with the sheep or maybe it was their yummy cheese we ate at dinner. We canoed, fished, hiked, went horseback riding, watched a major cooking demonstration, wine tasted and ate tons of delicious locally grown food in a majestic, candle lit barn. We are flying home today with our jeans slightly tighter and our minds full of amazing memories.
