The Award-Winning Calm of Blackberry Farm

Posted: Sep. 30th, 2006  |  By JustLuxe Team
Luxury Resorts: Guests of Blackberry Farm experience a most rewarding respite from the madness that can accompany a life of success. It is the relaxed side of the reality whether guests choose to be active or passive, as both are rewarding and replenishing. It is an escape from the complexities. Food and wine are the farm's top priorities. Epicureans of all levels are welcomed, as this is truly a painless learning experience filled with tasteful adventures to savor and swirl over the palate. Award-winning executive chef John Fleer and his staff meticulously present menus for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, with many of the essentials coming directly from the Blackberry's own cheese, eggs, honey, vegetables, and fruit.

Horseback riding and hiking are available through the scenic trails of the farmlands. There are daily two-hour trail rides, half-day backcountry trail rides, and full-day horse clinics. There are two ponds and a stream that provide freshwater fly-fishing. The nearby Great Smoky Mountain National Park and the Clinch River have more than 700 miles of trout streams. The Orvis-endorsed Staff guides and counselors are available to teach guest the finer points, such as casting techniques, essential knots, stream entomology, proper fly selection, how to play, land, and safely release fish, and much more.

Accommodations include estate rooms, cottage suites and houses. Renowned publications such as Bon Appetit, Southern Living, Zagat Travel Guide, Food & Wine magazine, Condť Nast Traveler, and USA Today are just a few of the renowned publications that have either praised or presented awards of excellence to the Blackberry Farm.
