On The Farm

Welcome in Spring

The Concierge team knows just where to send you to enjoy a front row seat for Spring on the Farm. Wander through the hills, explore the Farm and awaken your senses with the dawning of a new season.

Hiking Activities

  • Wildflower Hike – Enjoy a search for hidden wildflowers throughout our trails as they start to bloom. Throughout your hike, you will explore the mountainous and delicate beauty of the Great Smokey Mountains and learn about the various flowers that grace our trails.
  • Birdwatching – Enjoy a peaceful hike and learn about the many different species of birds in East Tennessee and the Great Smokey Mountains. Our Adventure guides are incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about the various types of birds that make their homes here. They can even teach you how to imitate some calls!
  • Foraging – Let our guides take you on a delicious and nutritious hike as they teach you about all of the natural foods and ingredients that are nestled throughout our trails. You’ll pick through the same plants that our kitchen teams love to incorporate in the menus.

Around Property

  • Horse-Drawn Carriage Ride – Take a step back in time and relax on one of our horse-drawn carriage rides, and watch the property begin to bloom in an open-air ride. Get lost in stories of the history of Blackberry Farm and the fresh beauty of the East Tennessee foothills.
  • Garden With A Master – Join our Master Gardener John Coykendall and the Garden team in a Spring-filled garden tour. During your time in the garden, you will learn all about the plants in bloom, interesting plant and garden facts and so many incredible stories.
  • Fly Fishing in Hesse Creek – March is a great time to join one of our expert guides and practice your cast in the creek. As bugs begin to hatch for Spring, the fish become more active. Fly fishers of any skill level are sure to enjoy a day with the sun on their face and their boots in the water.

Looking Forward to Lake Time

  • It’s almost time to return to the water with Kayaking, Canoeing, and Paddle Boarding! Beginning in April, explore the breathtaking foothills of the Smokies as you paddle your way through the calm, crisp waters of one of our local lakes or streams. Gliding through the water is a great way to spend a beautiful Tennessee Spring and see the foliage begin to bloom.
