The Hermitage Hotel
Through a partnership connected by land and history, The Hermitage Hotel’s Double H Farm’s manages a 2.5 acre heirloom garden at The Land Trust for Tennessee’s Glen Leven Farm. It is here, just fifteen minutes from the hotel, they grow vegetables to be served at The Capitol Grille and Oak Bar. The Hermitage Hotel also supports our organization through a visionary program whereby guests donate $3 per room night to The Land Trust for Tennessee for land conservation across the state and to support our education and outreach efforts at Glen Leven Farm. Through the guest giving program, The Hermitage Hotel has donated more than $750,000 to support our mission.
The Honey Bee Sanctuary

There are currently 12 hives at Glen Leven Farm in various types of box styles: Warre, Horizontal Top Bar, Langstroth and an Observation Hive in the Education Garden. Through this partnership, we are working to maintain the health and vitality of the honey bee, the land, and the community. Glen Leven Farm raw honey is available for sale when available throughout the year. Please contact us for more information.
