In A Nutshell...

Growing Healthy Food, Cultivating Healthy People

Athena’s Harvest is a small, family run farm located along scenic Leiper’s Creek in Fly, TN. We are approximately 50 minutes south of Nashville, and only 15 minutes from historic Leiper’s Fork.

Though not yet certified, we exclusively use organic best practices to grow diverse fruits and vegetables while maintaining our farm's soil health and ecological balance. No synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, or herbicides are used, and we don't plant any GMOs.

We market fresh, healthy, local food in Nashville and surrounding communities through our CSA subscription service, at weekly farmers markets, and to restaurants via the Nashville Grown food hub. We are excited to be a part of the local food system!

As farmers, we use tried and true gourmet varieties, while also introducing our customers to new taste experiences as we discover them. As eaters, flavor has always been paramount, so we choose and grow varieties based on flavor rather than size or standardized appearance.

As former Peace Corps volunteers, Jesse and Athena have always engaged actively with the communities where they have lived and worked. Today, we are combining our farming venture with development of a modern permaculture homestead, and establishment of an international public health and sustainable agriculture training center that will be the first of its kind in Middle Tennessee. These are long term goals, and we hope you will join us on this adventure.

Athena's Harvest welcomes all people regardless of age, sex, race, gender, religion, nationality, economic class, or sexual orientation.
