Crooked Fork Farms has a new store-front at 198 Liberty Road in Wartburg, Tennessee, but our traditions aren't new at all.
In 1844, the East Tennessee Colonization Company promoted land sales in the Cumberland region, targeting immigrants from the kingdom of Saxony. Christian F. and Johanna Heidle took up the offer and settled into the area after a three-month boat ride. Germans had already settled in the area and named it Wartburg, paying homage to a fortress of the same name in German mountains. From Christian and Johanna Heidle, to their son Ed Heidle, to their grandson Love Heidle, our family secrets are still kept alive today at Crooked Fork Farms.

Nature's finest. 100% pure. Unfiltered. Uncooked. Natural Honey is unfiltered (strained) and bottled using minimum processing. This is done to maintain honey's natural color, flavor, and aroma. In addition, minimum processing retains honey's natural mix of enzymes, pollens, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and antimicrobial properties. Our mission is to retain each honey variety's unique characteristics. As a result, each particular honey may crystallize over time. This process is nature's own way of preservation and in no way affects honey quality. Upon crystallization, simply place the honey in hot water and let stand to reliquefy. Do not bring to a boil.
All of our pickled products and relishes are made the way Grandma used to make them. They contain ripe vegetables, cane sugar (never corn syrup), the perfect spice combination, and of course no preservatives.
