Taney Place Farm is about family
and the legacy of the land.

The farm has been in our family since the early 1800’s. Beginning as a tobacco farm, it has passed down through nine generations, with my children’s children being the tenth one. My mother once said, “No one will ever own Taney Place. We are merely caretakers for the next generation.” With that role in mind, protecting the integrity of our historic home and farmland and leaving it better than we began, is our goal. We look to the future to be sustainable, producing quality products with pride of being as natural as possible and sensitive to the environment.

Our farm grows corn, wheat, soybeans, hay, straw, and meat from our Angus cows, which is our newest venture, Battle Creek Beef, LLC. We breed Labrador retrievers for family pets and Friesian horses imported from the Netherlands. Our love of the land and the animals that inhabit it, dictates our pursuit of the livelihood of farming.
