Jim and Pam Rogers, owners of The Old Campbell Farm and The Dock Barnard Farm, purchased the properties in 2011 and 2014, respectively, for the sole purpose of restoring and renovating them as vacation rental homes. Both Jim and Pam are lifetime residents of Franklin and thoroughly enjoy meeting new folks and introducing them to all western NC has to offer. Jim's family has been farming in the Iotla Valley since 1879. The Old Campbell Farm and The Dock Barnard Farm actually are part of the Rogers' larger 350-acre working farm where they specialize in growing Angus cattle and timber. The fields and meadows at the Old Campbell Farm and The Dock Barnard Farm produce hay each year for their cattle herd. But more importantly, restoring and preserving the rich heritage of the historical farms has been a privilege and a pleasure! What are the unique benefits at these farmhouses? Whether you stay for a weekend, a week, or a month, either The Old Campbell Farm or The Dock Barnard 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 fields and meadows to catch the last light of day and perhaps a glimpse of a doe and her fawn.
