Germantown’s Bobby Lanier Farm Park

The Bobby Lanier Farm Park is a 10acre education and demonstration center for sustainable living through agriculture and stewardship. The Farm Park is open to pedestrians from dawn to dusk, unless reserved for a special event or during inclement weather. Farm Park gardens, barns, special amenities, and restrooms are accessible during the morning hours from mid-March through November when staff is onsite and/or when programs, tours, and field trips are scheduled.

The entrance to the Farm Park is located at 2660 Cross Country Drive, just north of Germantown Elementary School. Public parking is available at the Cloyes Soccer Fields, and overflow parking is located at the Fire Station adjacent to Germantown Elementary School.

The Bobby Lanier Farm Park hosts a weekly Farmers Market on Thursdays from June through August from 4-7:30 pm. This produceronly market offers a wide variety of high-quality local foods, produce, art, and crafts. Chef demonstrations, live music, art, and food trucks are woven into the market experience.

The market heats up the summer months with the Summer Supper PickUp Series, where guest chefs from a variety of local restaurants provide live cooking demonstrations beginning at 6:15 pm. in the Harvest Moon Pavilion. All major ingredients for the featured recipes are readily available pick-up at the Farmers Market. Alongside the featured guest chef is a local celebrity that serves as the souschef for the demonstration. Some notable celebrities who have made their way to the farm include Kym Clark from Action News 5, Valerie Calhoun from FOX13 Memphis, and Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell.
