Oak Grove Farms
About Oak Grove Farms
Oak Grove Farms is a Middle Tennessee-based fruit and vegetable farm that was started in 2012 by Zach Erhard in the small community of Oak Grove in Portland, Tennessee. Zach has enjoyed growing things since he began in middle school working together with a close friend who had a successful produce farm. Over the years, the passion grew, and with his entrepreneurial spirit, he decided to start his own farm with his brother, Josh.
Since its humble beginnings, we have purchased land in Bethpage, Tennessee and have begun expanding our farm as we gain knowledge and a larger customer base. The farm's main focus is to provide local, fresh, naturally grown, and great-tasting produce that provides a healthy alternative to our customers.
As well as providing high-quality food our goal is to take care of the land and all that it provides for us. Our homegrown produce may be found at our roadside stand in Gallatin, as well as at local farmer's markets throughout Middle Tennessee.
This year we are also offering a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) to our valued customers
The Farmer: Zach Erhard
As a 22-year old recent graduate from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, I have decided to pursue a career in agriculture that I am passionate about. I have known for several years that this was the career path for me. I enjoy the hard work and dedication it takes to succeed in farming. I also enjoy seeing the fruits of our labor literally on a daily basis and this profession allows me to see God's creation on an intimate level each and every day. I could not ask for a more rewarding, enjoyable job. I love everything about it from growing to making the sale to researching new innovations and taking action on them. I believe the young farmer is needed in our society and I am honored to fulfill that role as owner at Oak Grove Farms. There are many working parts to this business and without the support of my family, friends, customers, and all those who work with me, nothing of what I have today would be possible.
