Sweet Tea & Shopping’s Spring Spectacular

March 30, 2015 in Editorials

Cool crisp mornings, the chirping of birds, and blooming of early flowers – There is no mistaking the arrival of spring in Tennessee! As the orchards begin to bloom and the trees begin to green – the activity at Bottom View Farm in Portland, Tennessee increases. In large part, the increased activity can be attributed to Julia Proctor and her team of creative minds & hands, as they enter the final phases of their 2015 Sweet Tea & Shopping Spring Spectacular preparation & planning.

“Sweet Tea & Shopping” is the purely southern name that describes the semiannual barn sales hosted on the grounds of this breathtaking 460+ acre fruit & berry farm, located just north of Nashville. Twice a year the barns, buildings, sheds & grounds are filled with artisans, makers & crafters displaying their unique designs for all who visit. In addition to shopping, there will be mouth-watering food & beverage selections along with entertainment and beautifully designed vignettes, perfect for photo memories. The Grounds at Bottom View Farms are unique and a Barn Sale experience you don’t want to miss, in addition to multiple barns & buildings filled with unique vendors; you will find tractors, farm animals and on Saturday, you will even find a variety of children’s activities. Sweet Tea & Shopping guests are encouraged to take advantage of the many activities – explore the farm – picnic or fish by the lake, hike through the woods, or take a ride on the 7 tower zipline. Bottom View Farm is the perfect setting for a barn sale market & a day of family fun!

What began as a single day four hour event showcasing 17 artisans has grown to this two-day extravaganza, attracting guests from all over the southeast United States. With something for everyone you’ll find shopping, entertainment, food, music and good times for all. If you like to shop you will find original art by talented local artists, handcrafted artisan creations, jewelry, soaps, antiques, junk-tiques, rusty + chippy picker finds, collectibles and vintage goods from all eras. If you love music, there will be live entertainment Friday night and Saturday throughout the day! Feeling creative? Visit the “Create Your Own” tent to complete your own original piece of art. Of course, what would be a good ole fashioned day at the farm without some fresh, home cooked food? You will want to visit the assortment of food trucks & confectioners, for sure.
