Springfield is 1 large glass of tea from Nashville or about 35 minutes as the crow flies.

What is Springfield known for?

Locals have been bragging about being the Home of the World’s Finest Dark Fired Tobacco since the early 19th century.

Once upon a time, tobacco money supported a vibrant local agricultural economy. Times are changing and farms are being subdivided so that the last crop can be planted. Don’t be dismayed there is still plenty of farmland and the influx of urban dwellers has sparked a renewed reverence for small local farms that produce food fun and whiskey.
