From our past ...
...Originally occupied by the Cherokee Nation, this land region was called, Wolfscratch by the natives. The story passed on has it that many chiefs came to these hills to meet here and make important decisions for all of the tribes. This is sacred ground! We honor it and defend it. Foothills Farm , Marble Hill, and the lands around here were later settled by the Europeans.
Foothills Farm was established in 2001, with the clearing of the forest to create the beautiful pastures you see today.
The farm house and stables were built in 2005. Marla ran a successful equestrian breeding and training facility. In 2009 Marla decided to lease the property and move out west. The farm was operated throughout those years as an equestrian training and boarding establishment by former tenants.
...Since Marla’s return in 2018, she has been building upon her goals to create a sustainable community. The community being built will be based around the permaculture concept, with an outside revenue stream from accommodations. In the near morrows, we will be formulating & building the infrastructure of our operations! Get involved! Be proactive and join others who are seeking new solutions and carving new paths!
