We are a family owned farm run by four boys and our father. We plant and grow multiple crops, including corn for those adventurous souls who want to find their way through our corn maze and to shuck their very own piece. Many ask why we started farming or how we came to the idea of it. Well, it just happens that all this did not come about overnight. Our great-grandfather William Ridley Medlin purchased the land we are farming in 1887 and worked hard every day using a one horse plow to farm tobacco and cotton. He raised our grandfather Clarence Medlin Senior in this way of life. As time went on, not only did they grow tobacco and cotton, but more numerous vegetables were farmed to feed a growing family. Along with tending fields our grandfather tended to many cattle, swine, and fowl. As the farm was expanding, he expanded the acreage as well by buying more land. In 1937, our father, Clarence Medlin Jr., was born and raised as a third generation farmer and has farmed, conserved, and expanded this land for well over fifty years. He still owns, farms, and tends to the farm with his boys Clarence Medlin III, Tony, Elvis, and Terry. The Medlin family still continues with a fifth generation which includes 7 grandchildren! We are proud to be a North Carolina Century Farm and proud to say we continue the Medlin family farming tradition.
