Be as active as your heart desires. Preferred pricing may be available for groups depending on the type of activity and number of participants.

Team Building

Natural Horsemanship

Join Blackberry Farm’s equestrian team to learn the power and art of communication. Our team will pick a horse to connect with, and will guide your group through the steps necessary to get the horse to "join up" with the trainer. This activity stresses the importance of non verbal communication and its power to build or break relationships.

Kayak Trips

Your group can explore the hidden corners of the Smoky Mountain National Park with Blackberry Farm’s Adventure team. A leisurely trip, many times paired with a picnic lunch, allows your group to get the most out of East Tennessee and the beautiful Smokies. It’s the perfect trip to unwind after a long meeting, or a demanding year at the office.

Guided Hiking

Our experienced guides offer special hikes for all skill levels. Your group can choose to hike one of Blackberry Farm’s scenic and well-maintained trails or venture off property and explore the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Yoga

Stretch and flex your way to outer and inner strength with a private yoga session. An instructor will customize your experience outdoors in a secluded setting.

Bonfire

After dinner, your guests can enjoy a private bonfire complete with s’mores, hot cocoa and entertainment. We will be happy to arrange for a cordials bar and recommend storytellers and musicians to help bring a close to the perfect day.

Wagon Rides to Dinner

A great way to get to a private dinner at Blackberry Farm is by wagon. Along the route, enjoy the stories and history of the Farm while partaking in a signature cocktail, made specifically for your group.

Competitive

Sporting Clays Tournament

Take your group out to Smoky Mountain Sports Club, Blackberry Farm’s private shooting grounds, to learn about and participate in a once in a lifetime experience. Our shooting instructors will teach you the safety and skills needed to break clays using a shotgun. Once comfortable, your group will break out for a series of games and challenges. To quote our instructors, "it’s the most fun you can have legally with a shotgun in Tennessee."

Fly Fishing Tournament

Join the guides of the Grey Drake, home to our fly fishing program on property at Blackberry Farm, to learn the skills necessary to find success fishing with a fly. Once trained, we will outfit you with boots, waders, and all the gear, break into small groups, and step into Hesse Creek, a private freestone stream that flows right through property. The stream is privately managed and full of trophy size rainbow and brown trout. It is simply the perfect setting to reconnect with nature and challenge your coworkers.

Paintball

Lose all of your office rules and let formalities go on Blackberry Farm’s paintball field. Our referees will split your group up into teams, and will facilitate game after game of high action, and adrenaline filled fun. In addition to just cutting loose, we will also test your teamwork, strategy, and tactics to see who will win. And to keep things interesting, the boss gets a T-shirt with a bullseye on it!

Blackberry Adventure Race

Broken down into activities and challenges, the Blackberry Farm Adventure Race requires both brawn and brains. The group is split up into small teams, which then work together to be the first to the finish. The experience is completely customizable, based on the group’s desires and abilities.

Food & Beverage

Cooking Demonstrations

Join the well respected chefs of Blackberry Farm’s culinary team to indulge in the cuisine that sets us apart. Whether it is hands on or demonstration style, it’s a great activity for a group to learn a new technique or experience a lunch they prepared.

Beverage Tastings

The goal of Blackberry Farm's Beverage program is simply to offer the most exciting wine, beer and spirits to each of our guests.. We are confident that guests with the most experienced palates will be overjoyed with the opportunity to experience the wine they have always heard about but never seen, or maybe just revisit an old favorite.
