Dinner at Blackberry Farm

In 1939, Mrs. Florida Lasier of Chicago snagged her silk stockings on a wild blackberry bramble while exploring the idyllic Smoky Mountain foothills, and the name Blackberry Farm was born. Thirty-nine years later, the Beall family invested their hearts and souls in the same romantic site that has become their family home and lifelong passion. Join us for a gourmet dinner in this one-of-a-kind location. Visit our Registration page to get your tickets now!
