Thanks for a great 2013!

The season has recently wrapped up here at Buffalo Trail Orchard, and we're busy preparing for 2014. Thanks to everyone that came out to the farm and that stopped by our stand at the Fox Park and Jonesborough Farmer's Markets.

We look forward to seeing you at Buffalo Trail Orchard in 2014!

Apples & Pumpkins!!!!!!!

The 2013 apple season has begun at Buffalo Trail Orchard! During September and October we will have more than 15 varieties of apples available at our on-farm market. Call (423) 639-2297 to see what apples are available and farm market hours. (We are sorry but due to the heavy vegetation in our orchard we will not be doing PYO apples this year.)

Also currently available at the farm market are fall squash (acorn, butternut, spaghetti, hubbard, cushaw, pink banana, etc.) and pumpkins. In late September we will begin our PYO pumpkins and other fall activities. We have all colors (orange, white, red, blue, etc.) and all sizes of pumpkins and fall squash for your decorating and eating enjoyment.

We look forward to seeing you at Buffalo Trail Orchard!

------------------------

We're Open for 2013! See Ya'll Soon!

Come on out to the farm for pick-your-own or catch us at one of the local East TN farmers markets. Give us a call and we'll let you know what's ripe and ready and when we're going to be open.

Have a Happy Holiday Season

2011 has been a great year for us, and we'd like to thank all of you for helping make it possible! Look for us early next spring with berries at either the Greeneville or Jonesborough farmers markets, or come on out to the farm and pick-your-own.

Best wishes for a great 2012!

------------------------

It's 2011 and We're Back for our Second Season!

Black raspberries are ready to be picked, so just give us a call if you'd like to come out or would like to figure out how you can get your hands on an order of this years first crop.

Stay tuned for updates as our other crops (see the products page for a full list) come into season this Spring/Summer/Fall.

Have a Happy Holiday Season!

This year has been a great first year for the newly planted berry patches and apple orchard! As many of you know, we've been selling our delicious blackberries, raspberries, apples, and pumpkins at both the Greeneville and Jonesborough Farmer's markets, and we just wrapped up 2010 with a month of pick-your-own pumpkins out at the farm. We're already looking forward to an even better year in 2011 as our apple trees and blueberry bushes continue to grow...

We'll get a comments section started next year, but for now we've pasted Matt and Elyse's remarks from their 2010 pick-your-own pumpkin patch experience below:

"We just wanted to thank you guys again for a great time! Your pumpkins were amazing and you were just such nice people! We really didn't know what to expect when we were getting closer to your place but it was really the highlight of our weekend. We also enjoyed the apple orchard that you recommended...but we look forward to the whole experience at Buffalo Trail next year!"

Now Open!!


Welcome to Buffalo Trail Orchard! We’re an apple orchard and berry patch located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains just minutes from Greeneville, TN. In 2009, after many years of research and planning, we planted over 1,000 apple trees, consisting of 11 varieties, as well as half an acre each of some of the most delicious blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries you'll find (at least that's what we heard from those lucky enough to sample them last year). Though it’ll be several years before any of the apples are ready for pickin’, we anticipate that all of the berries will be available as Pick-Your-Own crops later this year. So, check back soon and often for information on 2010’s picking season.

Here at the farm, we work hard to provide you with great food and a great picking experience. We’re currently growing 11 varieties of apples (with plans for more) because, simply put, we couldn’t figure out which ones we liked the best, and we figured you’d have the same problem. Though we offer pre-picked items, the apples and berries are being offered as Pick-Your-Own crops because we understand the joy of picking food as a family. You won’t find any long grocery store lines, shopping carts, or tile floors out here, only green grass and a clear sky (hopefully).

Here's a recently taken pic of the farm showing some of the staked up berries and drip irrigation we're using

Check out the mountains behind some of our newly planted apple trees. Those trees are growing!

Come find us at these great farmers markets!
