Our farm was established by David's great-grandparents, Charles F. and Alice Ferrell in 1898, although we can trace our family roots back to 1819 on this land. Our farm house was built by Charles in 1900. Charlie and Alice raised two children in this home. Their son George and his wife Lula (David's grandparents) raised three. We are the 4th generation of Ferrell's to work the land and live in the house.
Many of the brick were fired and hand-made here on the farm. The lumber was actually cut and milled here as well.
The C.F. Ferrell farm has produced many crops over the years: Tobacco, corn, wheat, soybeans, and cattle. We currently run a commercial beef cow/calf operation.
Our family friend, Craig Hilliard, has partnered with us for 15 years and is a vital part of our holiday operations.
It is our pleasure to open our farm to the public during the fall and winter seasons.
