Stuart Say doesn’t worry about rush hour traffic anymore.
Instead, he spends his mornings feeding more than four dozen chickens and strolling through rows of fresh vegetables.
After 17 years in the corporate world, the 39-year-old recently traded in his business suit to become an organic farmer, tending one acre at a time. He grows potatoes, heirloom tomatoes, lettuce, herbs, blackberries and raspberries on a 5.5-acre farm in Gallatin.
Say farmed part-time for six years before deciding last November that he would make Natural Fields Farm his full-time profession.
Natural Fields will join more than four other regional farms, including Bradley Country Acres of Cottontown, in donating fresh food for the second annual Farm-to-Table Dinner sponsored by Hendersonville Produce and the Sumner County Convention and Visitors Bureau Saturday, Sept. 21. The event will be held on the grounds of the old Comer home, which houses the CVB.
All of the produce from Natural Fields is grown without chemicals or pesticides, said Say.
His 50 free-range chickens lay up to 14 dozen eggs each week.
“The farm fresh eggs are very popular,” he said. “They have a different taste to them – the yolks are almost like (University of Tennessee) orange instead of yellow and we usually sell out each week.”
It’s not a 9-5 job, but it is rewarding, the Gallatin resident said.
“I work ... pretty much every day and some are longer than others, but I love it,” he said. “I get to spend time with my (three) kids when I need to and also it’s a good way to teach children to take care of the earth.”
As the summer draws to an end, Say will begin to harvest fall produce, including kale, spinach, arugula, Swiss chard, and spaghetti and butternut squashes.
In late January, the cycle comes full circle and Say will start with planting season all over again. The seeds are first germinated inside, then transferred to a green house and later replanted into the ground when spring arrives.
Say sells some of his crop to Hendersonville Produce and at the Farmers Market in Hendersonville. Natural Fields also participates in a hybrid CSA (community-supported agriculture) subscription service that delivers to Gallatin and Hendersonville.
At the farm-to-table event, guests will sample some of what Say has grown, including potatoes and fresh basil, at the casual dinner and wine tasting. A portion of ticket sales go toward scholarships at Volunteer State Community College for agricultural students.
