Milky Way Farm

Tennessee Crossroads visits with the new owners of the famous Milky Way Farm in Giles County, TN.

More Information

Back in 1930, the founder of Mars Candy built Milky Way Farms after falling in love with the land and people of Giles County. These days, it’s open for tours where you can relive the rich history and enjoy its timeless beauty. Several years ago we dropped in for a visit.

Milky Way Farm is accessible with an individual annual membership of $200 per adult and $50 per child (family cap of $500). Primitive camping is included. Please note that hunting is not permitted on the property. There are other opportunities for tours or special events, etc. on their web site.
