On occasion, I mention the local food movement (slow food, localvore, etc.) and how folks are looking for great, locally produced food.
I recently sampled (if you call two big loaves a sample) some really great bread made here in Hickman County – not too far from the Natchez Trace in the Primm Springs community. Twin Forks Farm Artisan Breads bakes organic, whole grain breads in an old-fashioned wood-fired oven. Their breads are presently available at the Whole Foods Market in Green Hills and Cool Springs and at The Produce Place on Murphy Road in Nashville. In the spring and summer, Twin Forks Farm Artisan Breads will offer their products at the Franklin Farmers’ Market, the West Nashville Farmers’ Market and the East Nashville Farmers’ Market. The Turnip Truck Natural Foods in East Nashville has just added the bread to their line. For the past few weeks, a restaurant in Leiper’s Fork, Twisted Fork Cafe, has been using the bread in their menu.
So, if you are looking for some wholesome, locally baked bread and granola, check out Twin Forks Farm Artisan Breads.
