  7. 7. U-PICKS U-pick farms invite you into their fields to harvest your own fruits and vegetables. That’s right, they let you do the picking—you or u, however you like to spell it! In East Tennessee, you’ll find an opportunity to pick in every season: berries in the spring and summer, apples and peaches in the summer and fall, pumpkins in time for Halloween, and more. But, visiting a u-pick is about more than filling up a basket with the fruits of your labor. You can re-connect with the source of your food—you can see your produce growing, meet your farmers, and travel the same road your food travels to the farmers market or grocery. Remember, it’s always a good idea to call the farm ahead of time to make sure they’ve got plenty of the produce you’re after.

CSA stands for “Community Supported Agriculture.” As a CSA farm share member, you pay the farmer in advance for “shares” of the season’s bounty, literally giving the farmer “seed” money at the beginning of the season. Then, you get to enjoy a steady supply of foods straight from the farm every week-from fruits and vegetables to meats and prepared food items. CSA subscribers say that being a farm share member is a little like celebrating a holiday every week. Typically, there is a box to open, and there are always many farm-fresh surprises. The farms make deliveries to designated locations, such as a farmers market, a school or neighborhood center, or a CSA member’s home. The typical CSA season corresponds with the outdoor growing season: May to October, but some also offer winter CSAs or meat and dairy CSAs year-round. Contact the listed farms to find a CSA program that is right for you. 14 SPRING CREEK FARM springcreekfarm.weebly.com springcreekfarmtn@hotmail.com 865-406-1399 Please see our website for more information about our CSA program.
