Nina and Richard Hanson of Hanson Farms in Lascassas, TN decided to start growing veggies as a healthy and affordable alternative to store-bought produce. They fell in love with working with the earth again, and their little farm took off from there! They now have multiple gardens, free-roaming chickens, honeybees, and dairy goats. Nina and her family will provide guests helpful tips and tricks for anyone interested in starting their own “at home” garden.
