Heaven’s Bales is an urban farm nestled right in the heart of West Knoxville, Tennessee. The farm is truly a little slice of heaven located in the middle of the bustling suburbs, right off Westland Avenue and the Pellissippi Parkway. While the farm is centrally located, it is tucked away just enough to offer the true peace and harmony that farm life provides. Heaven's Bales specializes in growing a variety of beautiful flowers and raising miniature babydoll southdown sheep. However, we love sharing our farm with others and ask that you keep a look out for announcements via social media of open farm dates. Our farm is loaded with critters! In fact, we have 36 critters to be exact, which means there is never a dull moment at Heaven’s Bales Farm!
Meet our family:
9 sheep: Sir Patrick and Storm (our leading men!); Mando, Ruby, Opal, Oynx, Black Pearl, Spanky and Bristol.
10 hens (too many to name)
1 rooster: Fluffers the silky
2 mini donkeys: Thelma & Louise
2 llamas: Harrods & Jefferey

Having moved 6 times to follow my husband’s growing career with Wyndham Vacation Resorts, we made an agreement that whenever we finally moved back to Tennessee, I would be able to realize my dream of owning a farm. Having always ridden horses and being an avid animal lover, for me, owning a small farm would be heaven on earth, thus the farm name “Heaven’s Bales”. “Heaven”, because farm life represents heaven to me, and “Bales” because hay bales represent harvest and the work it takes to make this dream a reality.
