A Century in the Making
It all started when…
Our farm started in 1895 when Bettie Denning and husband David Jernigan bought approximately 150 acres. Today, our family has acquired 40 acres of the original estate. Our barn was built by my great-grandfather in the early 1960’s to be used as a pack house for tobacco.
In 2015, our farm was recognized as a NC Century Farm. You can read the full story by clicking here.
“It is important to me to be able to pass down the land to my children and grandchildren, and for my future generations to know their heritage and where they come from.”--Bob Weaver, Suzanne's father.
We are extremely proud to live on a Century Farm and to have such a rich history. Our roots run deep, and we love it!
