Dad arriving home with fried chicken after picking up the tractor

This site shares Tom and Mary Davis’ efforts to maintain and improve the farm built by Tom’s father and Mary’s adopted father. He built the home, fields and pastures you see here while working full-time for 40+ years as an engineer for the telephone company and then 25+ years after retirement.

This web site is managed by Tom and the posts are intended to be a personal log of major work events and a resource for info about the farm.

Dad occasionally chuckled and said he thought he should name the farm “Sundown Farms” as we were always working at sundown.Often we would be working while the sun set after he arrived home from his office in town.

He loved the land almost as much as he loved his family. To honor that love we will carry on the tradition of the land providing food, working to make a better America and supporting the Christian life in which we were raised.
