Highway Homestead was created from a necessity to eat clean. We want the cleanest, freshest food for our family of five and hope we can provide your family with some as well! That’s why we do what we do! We believe our community and land benefit from small agriculture. We try to live as sustainably as possible, and hope that inspires others to join us in this real food movement.
To learn of generations past and skills forgotten, to pass these lessons onto the next generation, to be connected to our land and our food, to know how we got here, and never forget the hard lessons of farm life….that’s why we prioritize this lifestyle. We hope you’ll join us in our journey and learn a thing or two along the way.
Teaming with Local Partners
We have also teamed with a new business in the Knoxville area! Green Heron Compost seeks to make our Earth greener, even for city dwellers.
Green Heron is intuitive to what their customers need to make composting simple and easy. You get a free 5 gallon bucket delivered for you to store your compostable kitchen scraps. Once your bucket is full, you schedule a pick up convenient for YOU. Schedule as many or as little pickups as you need. Green Heron comes to you to pickup your compostables and deliver them to small local farms to be processed into compost aka “Black Gold.”
We are thrilled to be partners with Green Heron, to cut down on food waste and amend our gardens with this wonderful by product so many cannot use. Check out the article Green Heron wrote on our farm here.
