Blackberry Farm is a 5-star, luxury hotel situated on a pastoral 4,200-acre estate in the Great Smoky Mountains. That’s a mouthful for such a short sentence, yet it packs a punch. You don’t expect 5-star hotel and Great Smoky Mountains to accompany one another. Here, in Walland, Tn, it does.
Not only does Blackberry Farm host guests the world over, they produce heirloom fruits and vegetables from their garden, wild flower honey, eggs, and artisan cheeses from East Friesian sheep. It’s all a part of Blackberry Farms’ so-called Foothills Cuisine. Guests are even encouraged to take part in the farm activities during their stay.
People as well as the food produced on the farm gather at the FarmStead. The Barn serves meals made by Executive Chef Joseph Lenn and his team. The Farm kitchen in the is also where Blackberry Farm’s own farm-based programs such as cheese tastings and cooking demonstrations are held. Descending to where the livestock stalls once were, one discovers a grand cellar dining room flanked on both sides by a beautiful glass enclosed collection of wines.
