The first stop on this tour will take you to the farm where Terrell Vaughn first propagated what became known as Vaughn’s # 1 Bermudagrass. Mr. Vaughn will have an informative lesson on the production and management of  this variety of Bermudagrass, which has become one of the most widely used varieties in the Southeast. This tour stop will also feature a look at their Bermudagrass Fed Beef operation, which focuses on high quality beef products from their farm to your table! Our next adventure will be filled with the glories of nature! Fall Creek Falls State Park is Tennessee’s largest and most visited state park. The park encompasses more than 26,000 acres sprawled across the eastern top of  the rugged Cumberland Plateau. Laced with cascades, gorges, waterfalls, streams and lush stands of virgin hardwood timber, the park beckons those who enjoy nature at her finest. Fall Creek Falls, at 256 feet, is one of the highest waterfalls in the eastern United States. The park also offers camping, hiking, a nature center, an inn and restaurant, and a top of the line golf course, along with other things to occupy your time while you visit.
