Apple Pie Bread

For Sarah Head, the visitors are her favorite part of running a farm.

“We have people come all over from different counties, and it’s all by word of mouth,” says Head, whose family runs Shade Tree Farms in Adams. The 135-acre operation features a small orchard with 400 fruit trees, mostly apple. Apple products are the top seller, including their acclaimed cider, made fresh on site.

A member of Tennessee Farm Fresh since 2009, Shade Tree Farms has gained popularity with promotional help from the program, making the orchard’s fresh apples even more sought-after.

Apple Pie Bread became a favorite recipe after catching Sarah’s eye in an old cookbook.

“It caught my fancy because it used fresh apples. It fills the house with a delicious smell. I love it,” Head says.

Along with baking the sweet treat for her family, Head brings a couple loaves to her church’s county fair, where it flies off the stands.
