Equestrian and Agritourism Center! 

Foothills Farm is a semi-public facility which has a specific horse training & boarding facility currently in operation. In addition to the existing business, I have set goals for the farm to build it into an intentional permaculture community or equestrian neighborhood. There are so many possibilities and directions that it can go!

*Permaculture Gardening *Designed Intentional Community  *Equestrian Vacations

*Equestrian Neighborhood   *Educational Programs

We are located in the middle of historic Marble Hill which lies between Dawsonville and Jasper Georgia. Over time, this area has become known as the “Foothills at Big Canoe.” When you drive into the farm, you will see quite a different world than the one you just left behind! Off today’s fast track and into a historical farm setting. The land unfolds and behold, agricultural heritage at its best! We are surrounded by beautiful views of Potts Mountain and the serene, beautiful 1400 acres of land held in conservation.

There is much more to be done within our boundaries! I am diligently working to bring in an investor who shares the vision in growing an intentional community wrapped around the existing equestrian business and permaculture gardening. The goal being to make this a destination point, an agritousim business.  For greater detail and information catch up on my blogs here:  http://foothills.farm/farm-blog/.


~A Special Gathering Place 

*Prior to colonization “Wolfscratch” is the name given to this region by the Cherokee Nation. Their history tells us that this was a meeting place for them. We, at Foothills Farm strive to honor the traditions of those who walked before us. We are fortunate to be working the land as did our predecessors! Rich history surrounds us in the rolling hills of the Appalachian Mountains. Farming history and livery traditions also run deep in these parts and literally on this farm.

In honoring this heritage we cordially extend an invitation for you to come by and meet us! My contact information is below to.schedule a trip out for a visit!

Happy trails,
