While we were wandering around in Nolensville, we decided to stop at the Nolensville Feed Mill.
The big sign that said “Bread, Pies and Cakes” just pulled us right in.
When we walked in the door, we were immediately impressed with the variety of foods that they carried. They had Noble Springs Diary Goat Cheese, Hatcher Family Dairy Milk, Yoder Brothers Meats, farm fresh eggs, a variety of jams and jellies, fresh baked breads including sourdough, wheat, and rosemary garlic bread. We were very excited about the eggs and the variety of meats. Our CSA ends in November and we are hooked on farm fresh eggs and the meats from Yoder Farms. It’s nice to know there will be a place we can continue to feed our addiction.
Cary had the “The Mill” sandwich filled with Troyer cheese and both turkey and corned beef. Disregard the large bite that was taken out of the sandwich. Most of the time I can get a picture of the food before Cary tries it, but the sandwich was just too good.
You can also buy meat by the pound. We were very excited to find out it is cheaper than either Publix or Kroger, about $5.99 (variable).
The chicken salad was full of tender chicken, pecans, celery, and dried cranberries. They also offered a chicken salad with grapes in lieu of cranberries. I tried both and opted for the cranberry version. It was served on the homemade sourdough bread, which was incredibly soft, with lettuce and tomatoes.
We were delighted to find Sprecher Gourmet Sodas. They had cream soda, root beer, lo-cal root beer, cherry cola, orange dream and ginger ale.
While we were there, Young Republic performed one last song that quickly turned into three because the audience begged. They were great. Look them up on Myspace or iTunes.
There was a variety of Mrs. Armstrong’s Fried Pies. This is the peach. Don’t let the picture fool you. It was delicious. They also have cherry, apricot, chocolate, apple and coconut. We tried several varieties throughout the week. They had buttery, flakey crusts and just plain good fruit filling.
They have a variety of sweets. While we were there, we tried the banana nut bread, which was fantastic. We brought home miniature chocolate chess and chess pies. If baked goods aren’t your thing, they also had Pied Piper ice cream.
Some friends of our suggested we bring the caramel puffcorn home. They said it was addictive like crack… and boy howdy, were they right (not that I know anything about crack). It was sweet, light and crispy.
We really can’t say enough about The Mill. It was open, airy, clean and organized. Not only did they sell many great food products, we also had fun wandering through their collection of antiques for sale. When we left Cary said that he had finally found a great sandwich place in Nashville.Amish Market at the Mill
