Get back to Tennessee’s rural roots and hear firsthand what it’s like to be a 21st-century farmer when you book a Rabbit Circle Rural American Farm Tour. Rabbit Circle’s founder, Jennifer Davis, was born and raised in the countryside of Robertson County. Now she connects individuals and groups of all sizes with the farmers who grow their food (as well as tobacco, indigo and hemp) and introduces them to the rich culture of farming communities. Rabbit Circle offers three standard tours that leave from Nashville, as well as the opportunity to design a custom tour focused on your specific interests. Read More More at Tennessee Home and Garden
Jake from Nash a local instagram hero and his trusty people Jodi and Kelley took a private tour with Rabbit Circle out to the farm for dinner. We all enjoyed local favorites, Drunken Pig BBQ, prepared a smoked pork butt. Justin Dorris and his crew prepared the smoked meat in the traditional southern style of BBQ. They smoke their meat with the same slabs of wood that tobacco farms use to smoke the beloved “dark fire” tobacco . Nelson’s Green Bier Distillery, Black Horse Beer and Petri Cigars were also at the table. Petri cigars are made with a blend of local Robertson County Tobacco. Petri Italian cigars won the title Gold Medal Best Cigar at the Panama Pacific International Exposition in 1915. The hardwood smoked pork and tobacco from the Black Patch are what legends and fine meals are made of.
