Welcome to the farm. This beautiful little homestead, nestled atop Monteagle Mountain, is the culmination of years of hard work that began long before I was born. The original deed dates back to August, 1860.
This plot of land has been handed down to members of the Payne family throughout the years until I had the honor of purchasing it last December.
The history of this place is slowly revealing itself as I work to restore it into the working farm it once was many years ago.
My goal for this farm is to be a gathering spot for folks of all ages to see a variety of animals and gain a glimpse into life on a working fiber farm.
My wish is for this to become a place for people to meet, share ideas, good food, and lasting memories.
A place to spark ideas and make things happen.
This is not a lone journey.
There is no way any of this could have been possible without the help, encouragement, character building opportunities, and advice of family, friends, neighbors, and ex-partners.
I would never be here without each and every one of you.
And for that I express my endless gratitude.
I believe that we are here to make a difference.
I believe that it is important to see where our clothes come from, and to provide a glimpse into the world of farming, hard work, and living in harmony with Mother Nature.
Cheers to hard work, dedication, and living life with a purpose.
