As a kid I spent a lot of time on my grandpa’s farm in Southeast Missouri. This was the origin for my passion for farming. My grandpa spent time teaching me to work the land and the joys of sharing his farm with others. So as an adult I purchased 12 acres in Springfield, Tennessee and began hobby farming.
It all began with a few acres of corn and a few pumpkins. The reward for my hard work was the joy of sharing with others. In 2003, I had my first Fall Festival for church friends and neighbors. It was then that I realized this was my passion. My friends suggested I start a pumpkin patch on the farm, so I took their advice and started this endeavor as a hobby. I believed this would feed my hunger for farming and subsidize my expensive hobby.
With one small Fall Festival for friends, Honeysuckle Hill Farm was born and grew faster than my wildest dreams! After a couple of years I had the opportunity to quit my day job to pursue my dreams and grow my farm business.
Honeysuckle Hill Farm has evolved into Middle Tennessee’s Largest Outdoor Halloween Attraction with the addition of Scream Creek Haunted Attractions, and the addition of Nashville’s Music City Corn Maze and the Zipline Adventure Park really helped the farm take off.
Honeysuckle Hill Farm now covers 200 acres and is managed not only by me but also my son, daughter and about 150 of the finest farm hands in Middle Tennessee. We truly are living the dream, sharing traditions, and making memories.
