There’s Something Special About These 21 Tennessee Farms From The Past
Our roots are dug deep in the farm land out here on ol’ Rocky Top. We’ve found some photos from the past, a bit of a dig into what once was, for your agriculturally inclined pleasure.

Taking the trip to a better life, a better future. A new beginning.
