Our History

Wise Family Farm was established in 1926 when Monroe and Carrie Belle Dowdy Wise settled on to 80 acres in the Shady Grove Community located in Pontotoc County Mississippi about 5 miles east of Ecru. This little farm sustained them and their six children. The farm provided Monroe, Carrie Belle and the children with healthy vegetables, home grown pork, beef, poultry and dairy products.

Today, Wise Family Farm is owned and operated by the third generation of Wises. This little slice of Flatwood Soil is providing fresh vegetables for the local community and a wholesome family friendly agriculture educational and entertainment adventures for the greater North Mississippi area.

Each year hundreds of students travel to Wise Family Farm for a hands-on educational day long field trip to learn about agriculture. They also get needed outdoor exercise in a safe learning environment away from the distractions of video games and television.

Wise Family Farm is also opened to the public and provides a unique fun, safe and entertaining environment to get up close and personal with nature and away from the hustle of busy lives. Families make memories that will last a lifetime and learn about how their food gets from the farm to the table.
