No. 9 Farms is a non-certified organic, regenerative farm just 20 minutes outside of Nashville, TN. We grow seasonal produce, berries, culinary & medicinal herbs, and edible & ornamental flowers. Our laying hens feast on what we grow and lay beautiful eggs. We sell to 40 of the absolute best restaurants in Nashville.
Why non-certified? The standards for what used to be organic is well, not that anymore. Unfortunately misplaced progress and commerce has muddied the waters here (see Wendell Berry). We believe that absolutely nothing unnatural should be in our food. Back to its roots.
Our mission and passion is to help people understand why it is important to know where their food comes from and how it can heal their systems. As a result we have a certified kitchen in our modern farmhouse. We teach classes on eating and cooking seasonally, fermenting, cooking organically on a budget, preserving, cooking with allergies and other classes you will love.

No. 9 Farms is owned by educator Stephanie Oaks and musician and producer, Brian Oaks.
