At Twin Bridge Farm we grow several varieties of gourmet mushrooms. King Oysters area great vegetarian substitute for protein. Flavor is mild and elegant, yet savory. Can be grilled, steamed or sautéed.
Shiitake's are very popular with a distinct slight smoky flavor. It has a good shelf life that adapts well with many dishes like soup, stir-fry and risotto.
Cinnamon Caps are a beautiful clustered mushroom with nutty flavor and a crunchy texture. A versatile option to button mushrooms.
Reishi along with Lions mane and Maitake are mushrooms with medicinal benefits. We have created double extract tinctures of each - a great daily supplement!
Orchard and Lavender Field
We've started a fruit orchard in the front of the property. It is a work in progress, but we plan to have apples along with several other fruit trees which should be producing in the next couple years.
Over the past year we have started a large lavender field. With over 300 plants in phase one, we expect the entry to our farm to transform over the coming years with a beautiful lavender smell and waves of purple.
Over one acre on a perfect hill behind the house has been transformed into a vineyard. Cabernet, Merlot and Cab Franc are the grapes we've chosen in a hope to create our own Tennessee version of a Bordeaux blend.
150 plants went in the ground in spring 2020 and with a little luck we'll be stomping grapes in two years to create our first vintage. That is if the slugs, Japanese beetles, fungus, deer or other pests don't get them first.
We have an 1400 square foot cottage on the farm available for guests. It's a 2 bedroom 1 bath totally renovated space. The views of the woods and stream are great!
Kentucky Lake is 5 minutes away with great fishing and boating. Loretta Lynn's Ranch is within 20 miles and Nashville is just over an hour. If you're looking for some rest and relaxation, this is the place for you.
