When a Chef Becomes a Farmer
Tammy Algood introduces us to Tyler Brown of Southall Farm & Inn. We gain insight into farming from his perspective as a chef who strives for great flavor coming straight from the field. It;s here where guests are encouraged to explore the various gardens and growing sites on the farm.
Tammy Algood — Tammy has loved to garden and cook her whole life. She wanted to spend as much time as possible with her Grandmother who gardened and cooked, so she learned at her knee. Tammy is a marketing specialist with the Tennessee Department of Agriculture. She has written numerous cookbooks, including Farm Fresh Southern Cooking and The Southern Slow Cooker Bible. “Being a host on Volunteer Gardener allows me to meld both of my passions into one activity…cooking from my garden.”
