Tennessee is not usually the first place that comes to mind when talking about sourcing fresh fruit. We certainly do not produce the quantity that maybe a California or Florida does, but we do produce, and at a quality second to none.
If you were at Evins Mill for Mother's Day brunch, you will know what I am referring to. It is strawberry season! Our latest partner in procuring fresh ingredients is Turner and Sons Nursery and Produce. These guys are located on Hwy. 56 about half way between Smithville and McMinnville. They are a nursery specializing in fruit trees, but also bring in a healthy amount of fresh fruit and produce that you can purchase at the nursery or the Warren Co. Farmers Market.
If you were one of the few that missed Mother's Day Brunch, we will have another opportunity for you to taste these berries at our Memorial Day Cookout in a warm cobbler. Turner will also have blackberries, peaches, muscadines, apples, pumpkins, and much more as the season progresses. We plan on keeping up with the latest and will make sure we get our hands on more of these delicious fruits to share with you at our table. You can also check these guys out on Facebook and get some for your own table! Thanks John and Terri!
