Meet the Maker
Blackberry Farm, nestled in the Smoky Mountain foothills, received its name by chance: in 1939, Florida Lasier was exploring the area where she and her husband decided to settle when she snagged her silk stockings on a wild blackberry bramble and felt a prick of inspiration. Flash-forward to the 1970s, when Kreis and Sandy Beall worked to turn the farm into a 4,200 acre estate. Sam Beall continued his parents' legacy, and it's now known world-wide as a welcoming resort that embraces the ideals of gourmet cuisine and true Southern hospitality.View Full Profile
