If You Only Visit One Tennessee Orchard This Year Make It This One
When it comes to Tennessee farmland, you may attribute our southern agricultural economy to cotton, but how often does our lush homeland conjure up images of apples and peaches? Well, thankfully, there are quite a few stunning orchards and lovely farms that do just that. If you’re located in Middle Tennessee, might we suggest taking the family out to Morning Glory Orchard? It’s a beautiful place straight from the past, and well worth a journey in real time.
Morning Glory Orchard is a second-generation family farm located in the heart of the mid-state. It's where you can visit for an experience that hearkens back to the past and view a working farm that provides local shops and businesses with fresh product.
One thing to keep in mind is that the Morning Glory Orchard is not a public u-pick experience. Nope, this sweet family has done all the work for you! You can experience the beauty of the landscape, which includes mature and baby trees, as well as all sorts of farm offerings.
Gala apples, for example, are incredibly popular amongst visitors. You can also stock up on freshly made jams and preserves, farm fresh brown eggs, honey and peaches.
The store farm is bursting with everything from five varieties of cider a handful of apple varieties. Apples themselves are available fresh rom July to October, whereas the locally grown peaches have a season that runs from June to August. You better snap those up soon!
What we love about this place is how it stays true to its Tennessee roots and welcomes everyone from newly minted couples to bustling families. A Saturday spent on the farm is never better than at Morning Glory.
If you can't make it out to the farm itself, no worries! Morning Glory Orchard hawks their homemade wares at the Nolensville, Berry Hill and Farmin' in the Hall Farmers' Markets around town.
If you're looking for a farm visit, set your GPS for 7690 Nolensville Road in Nolensville, Tennessee. Summer hours include Thursday, Friday and Saturday as operation days, ranging from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
