Williamson Family Farm
Since 1953, the Williamson family has owned and operated a 200+ acre farm as the city of Murfreesboro Tennessee has grown around it.
The farm, started by Toni Turner and Mark Williamson’s parents was primarily a dairy farm with commodity crops raised as well. In 1988, like many small family farms, the farming operations ceased, and yet Toni and Mark never developed the property into a subdivision, a common occurrence with other farms for miles in every direction.
In 2016, as a means of revenue generation, the family started renting the barn and other buildings for events. They also began a UPick operation in the summertime.
In 2020, after the facility had been operating as an event center and Upick farm, Toni and Mark took substantial steps to better develop their parent’s legacy and the vision of preserving the heritage of the area – a heritage that was at one time a farming community and is now a suburb of Nashville.
