Tour Stop: The Stone Farm

Updated: Jun 6

A Haven of History and Peace


Nestled near Duck River in Centerville, The Stone Farm stands as a living testament to the past. With a legacy spanning 124 years, including a stint as a county poor farm during the Great Depression, its history is as rich and varied as the land itself. Eighteen years ago, Kenny and Tammy Stone were drawn to its beauty and tranquility, making it their home. Driven by a deep love for community and a passion for wholesome food, they've created a haven where family, food, and fellowship thrive.


The Humble Beginnings


In the early days, Kenny and Tammy's journey on the farm was filled with laughter and challenges. They never imagined themselves as farmers, grappling with the antics of a rebellious teenager and an eager yet inexperienced toddler. However, through perseverance and a dash of humor, they found their footing. Nine years ago, they took a leap of faith, venturing into the local farmer's market scene. What started as a modest endeavor has blossomed into a beloved community staple, serving four farmers markets across three communities.


The Harmony of Two Worlds


At The Stone Farm, diversity is celebrated in every corner. Leading the charge are Farmer Stone and Momma, each bringing their unique perspective to the farm. Farmer Stone, with his deep farming roots, dreams big, while Momma, with her fond memories of her grandpa's farm, adds a personal touch. Their partnership is not just a merger of skills but a tribute to their grandfathers' legacies.


Preserving Tradition, Nurturing Growth


As Kenny and Tammy continue to steward The Stone Farm, they do so with a sense of pride and purpose. Their journey is not just about cultivating crops but about honoring the past and equipping the future. With each harvest, they instill the values of hard work, community, and sustainability in the next generation. For them, The Stone Farm is more than just a piece of land—it's a living legacy, a place where the echoes of the past mingle with the promise of tomorrow.


Old-Fashioned Fun:

Their farm equipment may be vintage, but that doesn't stop them from getting their hands dirty. Planting by hand is a family affair, with the kids eagerly helping out. It's a tradition passed down from generation to generation, connecting them to the land and each other.


Sharing the Harvest:


At their farm store, the Stones proudly display their homemade goodies and fresh produce, welcoming neighbors with open arms. It's more than just a business; it's a chance to share their love of farming and community with everyone who walks through their door.
