Check Out Carter Hach’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Carter Hach. 

Carter, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Grew up playing fort under the dining tables, in the ballroom at my grandmother’s dining inn, Hachland Hill, in Clarksville, TN. Eventually, my grandmother let my brother and me play in the kitchen, making cookies, biscuits, and any special sauce we could dream up. 

A childhood of all that mixed with hundreds of hours playing in the woods and creek at the farm and rustic retreat/event center that my grandmother and Dad established just outside of Nashville fostered my vivid imagination… This creative mind. found its happy place in writing and cooking; 

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
 Everything works out the way it’s meant to be of course, but I was disappointed not to have been able to attend the CIA’s masters in hospitality business program for which I was accepted. A small family business needs all hands on deck all the time. Sometimes it’s harder to reach new heights with a business when you’re under practical and financial restraints, but that is my mission, and so far, so good… Our business is growing by leaps and bounds and the future is bright. 

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
All that I’ve learned growing up about the best of southern food highlighted with fresh, locally sourced produce and protein and unique herbs and spices used in uncommon combination create elevated flavor profiles that will make you smile. 

Is there anyone you’d like to thank or give credit to?
My grandmother, Phila Hach, was my inspiration. Her friend and longtime employee, Ruth Williams, who after my grandmother’s death spent hours in the kitchen with me, teaching me all of her 40 years of cooking secrets. 

Randy Rayburn, Nashville restauranteur, who believes in me and encourages me to think big.
