This is the Davis Family, they are a young farming family from Blount County and raise almost all of their own food. They eat seasonally, raise hogs, chickens, beef cattle, and produce. Rachel makes Lye soap, cooks with cast iron indoors and outdoors, preserves their food and loves all things “old-timey”. This family is truly carrying on the Appalachian food traditions of their ancestors from Cades Cove.. Both John and Rachel have roots that run deep in the East Tennessee area.
