We are located in Middle Tennessee. Drive an hour south of Nashville, Tennessee or an hour north of Huntsville, Alabama and you'll find us in the land of milk and honey. We are stewards of nearly sixty acres of Mother Earth and its inhabitants which is mostly wooded with walking trails, a few acres of pasture, a dilapidated barn of chestnut and poplar that we plan to reclaim, an established wild bird feeding station, and a house down a long private drive. Mother Weather shares nearly 50 inches of rain with us every year along with a solid dose of humidity. While summer temperatures can hover in the mid-90s, we enjoy the trees cooling us by about 10 degrees. We enjoy "five little winters" when heat and a nice warm coat will be appreciated but in between these "winters" is weather can fool us into starting our gardens too early.
