Overview
More
The world famous Milky Way Farm on Route 31, south of Nashville, has some of the most scenic, fertile land in Middle Tennessee. The historic property provides over one thousand acres of green pastures populated with herds of deer and flocks of wild turkey, enhanced by streams, massive barns, trails, and breathtaking vistas. Milky Way Farm began because of the vision of Frank Mars who purchased land in Tennessee in the 1930's after the success of his Milky Way candy bar. His farm employed hundreds of workers during extreme economic times in Giles County. Known for prize Herefords, fast horses, fine sheep, incredible barns and breathtaking views the farm is dear to many. Photos of the farm in its glory days can be seen at the Train Museum in charming Lynnville, Tennessee. The farm had its own railway stop to transport product and was one of the largest magnolia plantations of the South. Today the fine craftsmanship of all who worked on the property is evident in the architecture and design of the Manor House, the beautiful barns, stone houses, and rock walls. An elegant twenty-five thousand square foot manor house featuring twenty bedrooms and fourteen baths grace the property.
