As small business owners, we rely on word of mouth referrals from our customers to help grow our local business. Having a great base of customers and fans, we also love to help spread the word and do the same for our fellow local business friends as well. One such friend and also a great customer is Wayve Dennison and her entire family at Dennison's Family Farm in Elora, TN, which is just up the road a piece from us here at New Market BBQ.
It is truly a joy getting to chat with Wayve when she comes in. She has such a wealth of knowledge with regards to gardening, farming, love of the earth and all things life! She has just a beautiful way of sharing the joy of farming and healthy eating with others and it brings me joy to give back and help spread the word about them to those who may not know of their farm. You can check out their website here – www.dennisonsfarm,com – as well as be sure to LIKE them on Facebook and let Wayve know that we sent ya – Dennison's Family Farm Fanpage.
During the spring months, you can find the Dennison Strawberry Wagon out and about in various communities where they sell their amazing strawberries.
During the summer months, they operate an on-farm market for you to stop in and purchase fresh picked veggies & fruits from their farm. To find out what is available, please call their Veggie Line at: 931-937-8162
