Autumn 2008 is a Special Time at Holley Farm in Itawamba County

Holley Farm in Itawamba County is a beautiful sprawling agricultural oasis among the scenic rolling hills of northeastern Mississippi. A part of the Holley family for generations, this autumn the family farm is open for tours during its Fall Maze Days. I talked with a member of the Fulton Garden Club this morning about that club’s tour of the farm yesterday. It seems every member in the club was simply amazed and captivated at what Holley Farm offers the visitor. Included in the tour is a five-acre corn maze in the shape of a John Deere tractor, a pumpkin patch, a cotton field, farm animals, a large playground area, a barrel train, and a wagon ride through the farm and woodlands showcasing Itawamba County wildflowers, to the beautiful Bull Mountain Creek. There’s a country store offering unique culinary items enjoyed in Itawamba County homes for generations including delicious apples, home canned jellies and jams, squash pickles, corn relish, chow chow and home baked breads.

Holley Farm will be open weekends from September 26 until November 1. General admission is $6 with children under two admitted free. Group packages are available. The farm is open weekdays by appointment only. Give yourself a break in the countryside by taking a nostalgic trip down memory lane at beautiful Holley Farm in the heart of Itawamba County’s scenic hill country. For further information about Holley Farm’s Fall Maze Days, visit the Holley Farm website.

Bob, that looks good. You need to come over and do some pictures yourself. We have changed it so much since Mr. Pitts made those pictures. And you do such a wonderful job with pictures anyway. Thanks for your support. Jan

Jan, I heard lots of great reviews today from members of the garden club. I was told the wagon ride alone would be worth the price of admission! Everyone was also really impressed with the country store too. Best wishes with your corn maze project.

Bob, simply amazing. I had no idea. They are probably related to the Holleys that married in the Weaver family. Martha
