When I started to become aware of what was in the food I was eating I started researching where to buy good, quality food. As I drove past farms everyday on my way home from work I thought surely there is a place I can go that is filled with delicious locally grown food. So, I turned to Google to solve all of my problems. I don’t know why but I was pretty surprised there was an organic farm only three miles from me in Bellevue, TN.
I turned at the sign and drove slowly down the gravel drive. I parked and once I saw the store, so full of character, I fell in love. The general store is filled with local products such as produce, honey, local meat selections, jams and naturally made gifts. The porch is filled with herbs and fresh flowers. Green Door Gourmet has become one of my favorite spots. The farm is beautiful and refreshing.
It is a family place with a small play area and a BBQ hut which smells amazing. The best thing about Green Door Gourmet is the CSA which you can choose week to week. They sell bundles of food for a reasonable price which are hand picked each week. The CSA box is perfect if you like to try new things, along with some of your favorites.
The strawberries are my favorite. I haven’t been able to enjoy a strawberry from the grocery store since I had some from Green Door Gourmet. My only advice is don’t buy your first CSA box the same week you leave for vacation, like I did. The boxes are stuffed with goodies and there is no way you can finish it all in two days.
In addition to a fantastic store Green Door Gourmet offers a beautiful hand built barn to rent for weddings or corporate events. For more information visit www.greendoorgourmet.com or call 615-942-7169.
