Features and Amenities
The two dormitories, three private bedrooms, one cabin and a campground provide a rustic but comfortable lodging experience in keeping with The Farm's historic character.
Food is grown on site in a large demonstration organic garden.
On-site power is provided in part by a large solar electric array. Hot water comes from SunWing arrays.
Buildings and grounds provide examples of sustainable design: recycled and native materials, dome, strawbale and cob buildings, edible landscaping, herb spirals, ponds, catchments, rainwater cisterns and drip irrigation.
Toxic materials are not used inside the building or on the grounds. No pets are allowed. Everything is recycled.
Dining may be available at the hostel or, for larger groups, through a prior catering arrangement with the Farm Community Center. Cuisine features Southern vegan specialties and Two-thirds World favorites.
The nearby Farm Community Conference Center can comfortably cater for 150 guests.
Our outdoor decks and large yard are ideal for receptions.
Guided hikes on our Nature trails extend for miles. Wild mushrooming is especially good in season.
Pickup service from the Nashville Greyhound Depot and the Nashville International Airport is available at a reasonable rate.
Close to historic sites, including Meriwether Lewis gravesite, Natchez Trace, David Crockett State Park, Andrew Jackson's Hermitage, James K. Polk's home, Natural Bridge, and the scenic Buffalo River.
Special packages are available for meetings, celebrations, weekends, and work exchange. We offer customized retreats for individuals or groups. These weekend getaways provide vegan menus, massage, inner self work, movement, art-in-nature, personal trainers, bike trails, and customized courses to suit your needs. Learn skills to be healthy!
