The unique habitat and natural features of the farm are rich in history. Arrowheads dating back thousands of years are treasures found in the freshly plowed fields. In 1850, James Cureton purchased the property and constructed a grain mill on Lookout Creek known as Cureton Mill.
During the Civil War, over 5000 Union troops camped on the farm during the Chickamauga Campaign. After the war, the mill was used to saw lumber and as a textile mill. The Dyer family purchased the property in 1937 from the Curetons. In 2007, the Persinger family became the next generation of stewards for this beautiful piece of God's green earth!
A sustainable farming practice means we focus our efforts to work in harmony with the soil and nature. By using cover crops, composted organic matter, and crop rotations along with a whole lot of love (and hoeing), our gardens are producing quality products without the use of herbicides, insecticides or commercial fertilizers.
