I dislike the thought that some animal has been made miserable to feed me. If I am going to eat meat, I want it to be from an animal that has lived a pleasant, uncrowded life outdoors, on bountiful pasture, with good water nearby and trees for shade.

— Wendell Berry, from What Are People For?

Cedar Bluff is not exactly in the center of the universe but we’re close to Tupelo (home of Elvis Presley) and 3 excellent university communities (Oxford\Ole Miss; Starkville\Mississippi State; and Columbus\MS University for Women) – all of which offer a lot of cultural, literary, and culinary opportunities. We are in the center of a historic circle of incredible civil rights museums and sites from Memphis, TN to Jackson, MS, to Montgomery and Birmingham, AL. Also the famed Mississippi Blues Trail is close by and home to some of the best music and food in the country, and the state is now developing a Mississippi Writers Trail, a Civil Rights Trail, a Country Music Trail and even an Indian Mound Trail – all with spots near the farm.

We’re also near to superb biking trails – the Natchez Trace and the Tanglefoot Trail – and the Noxubee Wildlife Refuge is close by for excellent hiking, bird watching, fishing and other outdoor activities. Or you may want to just “porch” at the cabin and enjoy the view of lambs and steers grazing!
