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.

Robertson County tobacco heritage lives on through young farmers
The drive down Hwy 25 in Robertson County is often described as a scenic route this time of year. The soy beans are turning from bright green to a mustard yellow, telling farmers that harvest is near, the roads are lined with “Pumpkin Patch This Way” signs and the tobacco barns are full of hanging burley and smoking dark-fired plants.
On Saturday July 21, we hosted a custom tour for Edible Nashville’s Farm to table dinner. We picked up folks at the Noelle Hotel in Downtown Nashville and carried them out to to Turnbull Creek Farm in Bon Aqua, TN.
The beautiful farm is run by Tallahassee May, farmer and owner who also operates Fresh Harvest, the first online CSA in middle Tennessee.
