As Nashville’s become more of a food destination, we’ve heard the term “farm to table” maybe just a few (kajillion) times. The overall concept — locally sourced, unprocessed foods coming pretty much straight from the ground to your chef’s hands — is an easy one to like, which may explain why a lot of restaurants use it as an approach and/or descriptor.
I don’t imagine this Farm-to-Table Community concept will take root in Nashville any time soon, but plenty of us are putting more energy toward growing food at home, from simple herb gardens to full-on food forests.
Do you count yourself among the avid gardener/home farmer faithful? Wanna check out a few places on the market here now that give you a head start on your mini-farm-to-dining-room-table efforts? Take a look at some garden-to-table homes I found and rounded up:
4863 BRICK CHURCH PIKE
On five-plus acres in Goodlettsville, you have your creek, your pond, your barn with loft, your own orchard… your own vineyard? Not your everyday find, for sure, and a cute home, too.
1425 NEELYS BEND ROAD
Curve around the river from East Nashville to Neely’s Bend in Madison, and you’ve got a nearly 3,200-square-foot home on four-plus acres of land for well under $350,000. Serious growing is ready to happen here, with a large barn, fenced pasture and space that's already set up for gardening. Click through the images — you’ll see a woodland friend, too.
4070 WILSON PIKE
Not only is this 3-bed, 2-bath home on nearly an acre and a half of Franklin land, but your personal farm has already been started for you — see above. The interior is no slouch, either, with great vaulted ceilings, a cute brick fireplace and open kitchen.
1305 CRESTRIDGE COURT
A lovely 4-bedroom home, with a comfortable and cozy living room replete with fireplace, a well-appointed kitchen with an island perfect for breakfast and homework… But it’s outside that really stands apart, here. Just look at that picture above — feels like you just stumbled into The Shire. With a beautiful perennial garden and pond, your working-in-the-dirt dreams are ready to be realized.
1421 WESTHAVEN BLVD.
Over in beautiful and family-friendly Westhaven in Franklin, you have an absolutely pristine home — luxury kitchen, big master on main, the works. Outside, within the picture-perfect picket fence: your personal gardening oasis, already fenced in to fend off Williamson County bunnies.

"I can honestly say I would not have found the home of my dreams without T.J. Anderson! I bought my home last fall and he was incredibly patient, knowledgeable and made me completely comfortable throughout the entire process. He handpicked the house of my dreams and despite it having several other offers on the table he worked his magic to make it mine. I cannot say enough great things about him! I would tell anyone looking for the right agent to either buy or sell a home to work with him...you will not be disappointed.
