Blackberry Farm | Walland, Tennessee

While exploring the picturesque Smoky Mountain foothills—the future location of her and her husband’s dream home in Walland, Tennessee—Mrs. Florida Lasier snagged her silk stockings on a wild blackberry bramble.  It was 1939, and the name Blackberry Farm was born. Nearly 40 years later, the young Beall family dedicated themselves to honoring the historic Farm by opening it to the public as a six-room country inn.  The Beall’s young son, Sam, grew up on the Farm, and his love for the charming property—and the ever-changing cast of characters filtering through its 4,200 acres—made him the natural future proprietor of Blackberry Farm.  Today, Sam Beall and his own young family continue the long-standing legacy of southern hospitality and unwavering attention to detail that has given the Farm its sparkling reputation.  Just last year, the highly prestigious James Beard Awards Foundation honored Blackberry Farm with its fourth consecutive Award for Outstanding Service.
