Stephens Valley has been owned by the Stephens family for decades. The 900+ acres of land that straddles Davidson and Williamson counties was first bought by the Stephens family in the 1930’s, where it was primarily used as a pig farm and a way for the family to make a living during the Great Depression. Over the years, the farm became a bustling breeding ground for cattle, sheep, and other livestock. When Bill Stephens inherited the farm from his parents, he diversified its operations into fields of row crops and hay, which you can still see growing today. Read the full story here.
