Located about 20 minutes outside of Huntsville, you’ll find a farm well-known to locals—Tate Farms.

But this farm isn’t just about agriculture. It’s also about “agritainment.” This season, they’ve a new way to enjoy the farm with Tate’s Table.

This year, Tate Farms is opening up their table and inviting you, your family and your friends to join them. It’s going to be Southern fare at it’s finest—two meats, homemade bread, four or more sides and desserts, all homemade and served on a lazy Susan.

Each Friday at noon from September 23 to October 28, Tate’s Table will be serving up a different menu. Plus, they just opened up supper reservations on each of the same Fridays at 6:30PM—because everyone is wanting a spot at the table!

Reservations are almost sold out, so head over to their website to check availability and snag a spot.

Agritainment for the whole family
