Mt. Vernon Farm . . . Preserving the heritage
George and Bettina Brown named their 160-acre farm Mt. Vernon as a patriotic head-nod to the road they live on (Vernon Grove Rd) and to the five generations of men in their family named "George Washington Brown."
The couple purchased their property more than 20 years ago from a generational family who has farmed in this community since the 1800s. The Browns are continuing the heritage of family farming by raising Thoroughbred Race Horses and Angus Beef Cattle.
For the first of two barn quilts on their property, they selected the "Martha Washington's Star" pattern colored in a patriotic pallet of red, white, and blue.
