Gratidude Ranch is a beautiful mini-farm located just 8 miles from historic Leipers Fork Village.  If Sunday morning had a hometown, the charming village of Leiper’s Fork might very well be it. This come-as-you-are treasure of Williamson County is a homegrown mix of picturesque surroundings, culture, and Southern fare. 

The creative climate of Leiper’s Fork is thanks to a quiet, distinguished force of local artists. Galleries such as The Copper Fox, Leiper’s Creek Gallery and David Arms draw visitors from around the world. Antiques lovers and collectors will find area shops a refreshing, regional mix of history, story, and style. The Fork’s curious mix of swank and come-sit-a-spell charm is contagious and echoes in boutiques like Serenite Maison, West and Company, and Wanderlust.  And, of course, you can't forget the food! Once you visit, you may never want to leave.
