The Old School
Guided by common values of community engagement, sustainable living, and responsible production, the Old School’s various operations are linked by a dedication to our community and our mission.
Only ten minutes from downtown Nashville, the Old School is situated in Bells Bend on nine acres of scenic Tennessee farmland. Centering around a fully restored historic 1936 schoolhouse, our buildings and the surrounding acreage are a collective campus offering farm-to-table cuisine, creative and educational experience, and custom event packages.
The grounds surrounding our schoolhouse are cultivated by a nonprofit, growing seasonal produce through organic, sustainable, and zero-waste farming. Our farm-to-table restaurant implements responsible restaurant practices, sourcing sustainable ingredients from neighboring farms, including our own backyard.
The Old School offers a unique environment that encourages those from our surrounding community and beyond to join our mission of responsible production and consumerism. Whether you're joining us for a meal, a class, or an event, The Old School invites you to take a seat at our table.
