We may be into the Dog Days of Summer but here in the glorious Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee, it’s always the perfect season and now is no exception! Thanks to plenty of rain everything here on the farm is green and luscious. Our migrating geese are certainly enjoying the grounds and have become a favorite of the guests. It’s worth the occasional traffic stop to allow them to cross just to see them return year after year to Applewood. And have you seen or met our feathered favorites Bert and Ernie at the Farmhouse? If not stop in and ask Bear or any of the staff to introduce you! In fact the finches have become so popular, we added a new birdcage at the Grill. You will find it located in the Back Forty dining room along with new custom furniture from Old Hickory. It looks great and we’re loving it. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
While we are on the subject of visiting Applewood to see the new birds and furniture, I’d like to plant a seed in all of you planners out there. If you’ve been tasked with finding a place that can handle your upcoming family reunion, holiday party, sports team, no matter the occasion, please consider Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant and Farmhouse Grill. We are one of the few places in the Smokies that can easily handle large groups. We’re conveniently located in Sevierville, we offer group reservations for parties of 20 or more, and can provide the best accommodations you’ll find for dining and relaxing. Just click HERE to find out more. And don’t forget we are the ORIGINAL Farmhouse here in Sevierville…not built to look like one. We still pride ourselves on being Sevierville’s oldest restaurant and feel we have YOU to thank for that!
As we quickly near the end of summer in the Smokies and kids start to return to school or move off to college, I want to wish you all the best in this new school year. Stay safe, stay healthy and of course, stay hungry. And when you are hungry, you know where to come. We’ll continue to feed you the very best southern, homestyle cooking that we’ve been serving for 30+ years. In fact, we’ve served over 23-MILLION guests since we opened our doors in 1987 and we have no intentions of slowing down now! We’re always delighted to serve you here at Applewood Farmhouse.
