Glenn and I are excited to begin our new adventure on this historic farm that has been farmed by generations of my family for over 200 years. Over the years, many crops have been tended and animals raised: tobacco, tomatoes, corn, cattle, sheep, hogs and bees to name a few. In 2009 our family made the commitment to preserve over 500 acres of the farm in a conservation easement with Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy (SAHC) in order to ensure that this will be farm land for perpetuity.

Glenn and I have started our stewardship over a few of these acres to work toward a sustainable, healthful farm that offers vegetables, fruit, honey, eggs, herbs and flowers. We are grateful for the opportunity that we have been given, and want to share it with others who also care about our integral connection with nature.
