Franklin's Southall has opened with a working farm and event center, including a 1400m2 vertical farm, cottages, a restaurant, a spa, live music, and more. 

The "luxury farm-based resort" features 62 guest rooms and suites, along with 16 stand-alone cottages and a 15,000-square-foot spa that features eight individual treatment rooms and two suites for couples.

"The first seeds for Southall were sown generations ago — though its earliest farmers could never have imagined a place quite like this," Southall Founder Paul Mishkin said. 

"Southall today is also more than I could have imagined. It started out as a dream to create a place for people to stay and enjoy all the farm has to offer, and today, we're welcoming guests to a truly immersive experience where remarkable design, earnest hospitality, and unparalleled farm, spa, and culinary experiences combine, creating a true picture of the bounty and beauty of this very special place." 

The Farm at Southall features some 1,300 apple trees with 43 different varietals, 15,000 square feet of hydroponic and traditional conservatory greenhouses, as well as food-producing shrubs and trees, an apiary, and more.
