Our agricultural story is one that is rich in history and full of an entrepreneurial spirit that has been passed down through generations.
Franklin County residents have cultivated the red clay we call "home" for centuries, and we take great pride in maintaining its original charm and character. Throughout the years, acres of farmland and families have been the source of beef, dairy, produce, and libations tended right here.
One of the most interesting aspects of our heritage is our connection to moonshine. During Prohibition, our ancestors produced moonshine in the hills surrounding our farmland as a way to make ends meet. Although it was illegal, it was a common practice in the area, and many families relied on the production of moonshine to survive. Today, several local distilleries honor our ancestors history by producing legal moonshine.
Our entrepreneurial spirit and work ethic has been a driving force in our county for generations. From producing moonshine during Prohibition to operating a successful farms and distilleries today, we have always been willing to take risks and try new things. We believe that this spirit is what sets us apart and has allowed us to thrive in a constantly-changing world.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our story and heritage. We look forward to sharing our passion for agriculture and moonshine with you.
