Everything revolves around the supper table – loved ones, great conversation, and good food. We are thankful to be able to offer you a clean, healthy food source to place on your table. A meat source that is ethically and humanely raised by small family farms within your community.
The Farmstead Collective – Meet Your Farmers
Acorn Creek Farmstead is blessed to have the opportunity to partner with The Haven Homestead to provide you with humanely and ethically raised chickens for your table. We guarantee that the birds you receive to feed your family are as important as the chicken we place on our tables.
Acorn Creek Farmstead
Justin and Ann
The journey to establish a farm that would feed us has morphed into providing those within our community with clean food options and the opportunity to learn how to live a homesteading life through our hands-on workshops. Acorn Creek Farmstead offers families raw milk, pasture-raised meat and eggs, seasonal CSA packages, home-canned goods, and fermented foods. Enjoy the beauty of middle Tennessee and farm life while staying at our guest house. Here on the farm, we practice simple living with traditional values while striving for food freedom. These are all traits we wish to share with all who visit.
The Haven Farmstead
Benjamin and Janelle
The Haven Homestead was started on raw land in the fall of 2022 with these guiding principles: to be a “Haven” for others when needed and to provide food grown and raised with sustainable farming practices. Ben and Jennelle traded a beef cattle ranch in Western North Dakota for a homestead in middle Tennessee. The Haven Homestead has committed to raising quality meat options, raw milk, and eggs for themselves and others while improving soil quality. The Andersons invite you to the Haven Homestead to view their animal-raising practices and share the lifestyle they love.

Full Circle Homestead
Mike and Cari
Full Circle Homestead began in 2021 to redeem past farming practices while embracing the wisdom of the future. The homestead emphasizes land regeneration, holistic animal husbandry, and offering our livestock clean feed options. Our family is passionate about consuming and offering others the opportunity to create clean meals around a table while restoring traditional living.
Each homestead practices good livestock husbandry and a solid pasture rotation schedule. For these reasons, our chickens are raised on pasture, allowing them to consume as much fresh grass and bugs as they desire. The chickens raised on our farms can move freely and enjoy the sun as God intended.
Raised on a Non-GMO Whole Grain Feed
Together, our farms have committed to raising chickens on whole grain non-GMO feed, grown and milled by a local family farm in Middle Tennessee. We take what and how we feed our pasture-raised chicken flock seriously. In addition to offering a locally sourced non-GMO whole grain, the grains soak for 12 hours, increasing their nutritional value.
