Welcome to Mefford Meadows

Updated: Jun 15, 2020

In 2019 my husband Will and I bought our little 7 acre mini farm in Franklin, TN! We have a nice blue ranch with a wood burning fireplace, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a large barn. How were we able to get this in Franklin? Truthiness because it is in a flood plain, there is a wet season, so muck boots are a family requirement!

First the Mini Orchard!

When is the best time to plant a tree? This was my thought when we first moved into the house. I wished we could already have large lush fruit trees, but dang trees can cost a pretty penny! So we went with small, reasonable priced trees from Lowes. Last year we put in a few and we added even more this spring! We now have:

  • Cherry Trees 2 varieties

  • Pears

  • Apples

  • Plums

  • Almonds

  • Hazelnuts

Con to this is that it will take years for us to get any production from our trees. We put the trees in the front yard because we know that some fruit with pits can be dangerous for livestock and I knew I wanted to have animals in the future. We have the yard mapped out on inkscape so we can keep track of what land will be used by the trees in the future. I also like that the trees will give us some privacy from the road in the future as traffic picks up over time. See our tiny stick trees below, just imagine when they are full sized!

Please keep in mind that I support my family through my real estate career. Check us out at If you are planning to buy or sell in the Franklin, TN Area.
