You’ve Never Experienced Anything Quite Like This Unique And Historic Farm Tour In Nashville
Tennessee is known for its historic and agricultural weight as a state. It’s the kind of place where you fall in love with the rolling hills and wildflower choked valleys, where you eat a good meal and shake the kind hand of the farmer that tilled the land. Hatcher’s Dairy Farm is located in College Grove, Tennessee, and it’s a great place to visit if you’re looking for a fresh bite out of the state’s natural dairy churn. Take a look at how you can visit yourself, below.
Hatcher Family Dairy takes a lot of pride in operating as a family run institution that keeps southern hospitality and values at the forefront of its business. The farm has been worked by the Hatcher family for five generations, a legacy of more than 175 years of hardworking experience.
You've most likely seen Hatcher Family Dairy products throughout the mid-state, especially in smaller and specialty grocery establishments.
If you find a product that bears the Hatcher Family Dairy label, then you know that it was produced completely by the cows on the farm. There's no outsourcing that takes place, but instead, you'll find the hand of a Hatcher involved every step of the way.
It's a neat thing, to see how this Tennessee family truly cares about their animals. They feed their cows based on the nutritional needs required for great tasting milk, and their product and the well-being of their animals is key.
You can tour the farm itself on one of their educational walking tours, available for $8 a person and reserved via their website.
You'll make between eight to ten stops throughout the entirety of the tour, which means you just might pop by the barn loft, creamery and milking parlor.
Please note that you are required to wear closed-toed shoes during the entirety of your tour, which, from April 3rd to June 12th will occur on Tuesdays at 10 a.m.
Larger groups and school trips will have to be cleared through the administration at the farm, but it's well worth the time and effort. It's hard to find such a traditional and quality place in the days of expansive supermarkets and convenience stores. This is Tennessee, first hand and homegrown.
You can visit for yourself at 6561 Arno Road in College Grove, Tennessee. If you’re craving a bit of ice cream after the fact (because why not?!) then
