About Green Acres:

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.

Green Acres honors military personnel and hometown heroes. Active military personnel, firemen, Rescue Workers (EMS), and Policemen have free admission with current ID cards.

It is our pleasure to open our farm to the public during the fall and winter seasons. Please enjoy your visit and let us know how we can be of assistance.

The Corn Maze:

Our 2016 Corn Maze Season begins on Saturday, September 24 at 9am. Remember, we offer the night maze each Friday and Saturday night until 10pm (ticket office closes at 9pm). Our last day of the 2016 season is Sunday, October 30.

Our 2016 bill board is up and shining! We are excited to announce that we are working with the Make-A-Wish Foundation! Every Make-A-Wish family will enter for free and part of our proceeds will go to the foundation to make some dreams come true! We look forward to seeing you this fall!
