Our generation is the 5th to Farm the current plot of land...our children and grandchildren will be the 6th and 7th. One of our grandsons is fascinated with everything John Deere. Yep, raise them right! GO GREEN!
My most favorite memory was sitting on my grandfather's pick up truck (we got to sit on the hood and watch the farm happenings), in the evening as the cows meandered around, preparing for the evening. Granddad raised purebred Herefords. The picture below is of one of his favorite Bulls, Victor. We have since transitioned to row crops, but I miss the sounds of the cows and my parents and grandparents. But times are ever changing and it's our responsibility to make memories for our grandbabies.
We are grateful to the State of Tennessee for this program that recognizes the Family Farm. In a day and age where things are disposable, it is an achievement to find something and stick with it. And 125 years is certainly an achievement!
Welcome to the history of how we came to call ourselves: FARM HOUSE BARKERY®!
