about us


Forest Gully Farms is owned and operated by Jon and Mandy Giffin. Born and raised in Louisiana and Mississippi, the Giffins moved to Tennessee and fell in love with horticulture. On our farm, we strive to develop an experiment of sorts with diversity in agriculture. We work with the whole system to produce a holistic ecosystem. Using methods from both permaculture and food forestry, we hope to keep a self sustaining ecosystem using our native plants, herbs, animals and bees. We are an ever evolving farm, so no two visits should be the same.  


The Gully Huts

These huts are constructed of white cedar throughout which is rot resistant and has bamboo flooring. With a retaining wall around each hut, our underground location allows for natural earth insulation and drastically reduces heating and cooling costs.
