Avans Farm is a place where you can escape your hectic city life and enjoy a taste of country living for a day or even a few days.   

It's a great place for -

  • Church Group country retreat
  • Family reunions
  • Small corporate outings or meetings
  • Families wanting to relax and be outside with nature
  • Childrens birthday party in the barn
  • Weddings
  • Vacation in Middle Tennessee

We are located in Smith County Tennessee 50 miles east of Nashville and 110 miles west of Knoxville on I-40 and travel about 4 miles south.


 In the Fall we decorate our trails, offer hayrides, hot dog and marshmellow roasts for groups or individuals. This would be a great time to plan for a family or group outing while the temperatures are pleasant and the leaves are gorgeous.
