Timothy & Carolyn Turner

About the farmer…

Situated between Massanutten Mountain and Shenandoah National Park, Turner Farm in Elkton offers arguably the best views a chicken could ask for. Timothy and Carolyn Turner purchased their farm in 1996 from a turkey farmer and have been raising chickens since 2002. When asked what she loves most about her farm, Carolyn couldn’t name just one thing – she loves everything about her farm, even the long hours. And that, to her, seems like the key to success: a young farmer has to enjoy what he or she does in order to sustain it.

Their son-in-law, Jeffery, handles all things mechanical on the farm, and when their grandson, Tanner, is not casting a line into the serene pond, he loves to help set up for new chicks. For downtime, this family doesn’t have to go far. They love to go fishing, have cookouts, and spend time together on the farm.
