We are asked a lot where did we get the idea of our name . Some people thought it was a place to tumble. My dad Rex Lawler's, ranch was called the Tumbling L Ranch. He raised register Polled Hereford Cattle. Which I showed as a 4-H member in Oklahoma. So we just changed it to the Tumbling N Farm . Since our last name is Nelson and we own a farm.
Owning an educational farm has been the dream of Sheila and Tom since when they rented a small farm to put the 5 horses they bought for their family. We went to an Alpaca Show and feel in love with the fuzzy little animals, Five alpacas arrived the next month. Since we didn't live on the land we needed guard dogs we chose the Great Pyrenees our first two boys and three goats arrived the next week. Next came hogs and chickens.
Our farm animals numbers where growing we needed to find a farm with a house. After many months of looking, as Tom will tell you looking at every farm on the market in Georgia we finally found the right place. A 12 acre farm in Henry County. The Tumbling N Farm was named and we went about building fence and shelters for our animals. We raise alpacas, sheep, goats, horses, chickens, ducks, and rabbits. Soon we will be adding hogs, cows and llamas to the farm.
Our vegetables are grown in raised beds Tom designed and built. Sheila is busy canning and freezing the harvest.
