In December 2015, Jonathan and Judith Smith closed on a conservation agreement fulfilling their dream of protecting a little slice of heaven, Happily Ever After Farm. Knowing it will remain an oasis forever was the driving force for the Smiths. The sixty acres is located on the border of Cheatham and Davidson Counties, an area rapidly developing around them due to the urban sprawl and growth of Nashville. Small working family farms make up the fabric of our state and benefit the local economy and spirit of our communities.
This idyllic farm contains Oreo Belted Galloway beef cattle, productive blackberry and raspberry bushes, hens, and honeybee hives. The Smith’s protected land is nestled along Old Clarksville highway, an iconic landscape enjoyed by the community. The rolling hills of pastureland and forestland contain a portion of North Fork Marrowbone Creek which is a direct tributary to the Cumberland River, an important water source for the region.
