About the owners: Jim and Pam Rogers, The Old Campbell Farm's owners, are lifetime residents of Franklin. In fact, Jim's family has been farming in the Iotla Valley since 1879.
Why the Owners Chose Franklin:
The Old Campbell Farm actually is part of the Rogers' larger 350-acre working farm where they specialize in growing Angus cattle and timber. The meadow at the Old Campbell Farm produces hay each year for their cattle herd. But more importantly, restoring and preserving The Old Campbell Farm, a truly wonderful historical treasure, has been a privilege and a pleasure!
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Whether you stay for a weekend, a week, or a month, The Old Campbell Farm can be home base to explore everything from Dollywood in nearby Pigeon Forge, Tennessee to the Biltmore House in Asheville, North Carolina. Go hiking in the Smokies, bicycle riding on marked trails and paved routes, motorcycle riding on challenging mountain roads, and strolling along the country lane that leads to the Farm. After dinner (or supper, as we say in the mountains) sit on the screened porch or take a walk in the meadow to catch the last light of day and perhaps a glimpse of a doe and her fawn.
