My wife and I are both veterans. I retired from the Army in 2015 and am 100% disabled. My father and grandfather also served and my grandfather was 100% disabled as well from service in WWII. I completed two tours in Afghanistan and Iraq and interestingly to me, began my service with a tour in West Berlin, East Germany in the Army of Occupation.
My grandfather purchased his 350 acre farm with the GI loan. My wife and I purchased our farm here in Tennessee at auction in 2015. It was just land and two sheds when we bought it. we started with a bred cow and her calf. I worked for a few years in the civilian sector and retired for good to farm in 2020.
We have small production beef sales planned for 2022 and beyond, and mainly vegetable row crops to sell which began in earnest in 2021 but hopefully we will have expanded in the coming year(s).
Several of our customers asserted that we grew the best tasting greens and bush beans they'd ever eaten this past summer/fall and we like to think all of our vegetables are that kind of quality. Locals in the area know our place from the previous owner that bequeathed his estate to St. Judes and was something of a local legend, Robert (Bobby) Bowden. Not the football coach.
Our beef is grass-fed and finished, naturally raised with only fresh-water (and home-grown hay fed over the winter months to them) and forage. Our vegetables are not certified organic but are the closest thing to it that one can get. Customers may pick themselves or I'll pick what they ask for, bag it up and have it waiting on them when they arrive at the farm location.
We also sell locally at the Culleoka Farmers' Market.
