Just thirty minutes north of Nashville lay the rolling hills and charming small towns of Robertson County. The legends hidden in the hills and caves draw visitors curious about the tales of the Bell Witch, America’s most famous spirit. In late summer, a fragrant smoke settles over the fields of the county as tobacco farmers begin the process of smoking their crop in hundred year old barns, producing our world famous Dark Fired Tobacco. The area is loaded with history and culture, delicious food and drink, and opportunities for the whole family to enjoy true Southern Hospitality.
