our roots

Last week was marked by Pioneer Day, a day where we pay tribute to the courageous people who braved extreme conditions to be able to make it to the Utah Territory. Wadley Farms carries the family name of some of our ancestors who attempted this daunting feat and without them there would be no Wadley Farms and there would be no “us”. It is because of them that we are here, that we are able to enjoy freedom, something they were willing to sacrifice everything precious to them, even their life. We hold a duty to them to not let their sacrifice be in vain and to show them gratitude by treating their land with love and respect. I’ve often had guests comment about the “spirit” that they feel at the farm. There is a stillness that is only felt there. I believe that this is due to the fact that the property has been loved, cultivated, and prayed over for generations. There is nothing more surreal than sitting on the Railroad Building porch with a gentle breeze, birds singing, and watching the sun slowly sink behind the West Mountains. This is why we do what we do.

Ally and Chris June 2010

What a beautiful and fun couple! Sheena Jibson Photography did the stunning pictures. Sheena's has a tastefully unique perspective of the Farm that I have never seen. She is a really talented photographer. Ally and Chris did a beautiful job of decorating and making the event reflect their taste and style. I loved the centerpieces, perhaps one of my favorites of the season!
