Dennis and Terry Robbins raise Animal Welfare Approved sheep at Cris-Co Farms in Gray, Tennessee. The Robbins have a very close- knit family and even named the farm by combining the names of their sons, Chris and Cody. However, Terry said the name causes some confusion. People often ask, “Why’d you name your farm after LARD?”
Chris Wilson grew up on a small farm and has been living on a farm ever since. As a child, Chris said she “grew up thinking everyone had a cow.” All her years as a farmer with an interest in sustainable agriculture definitely paid off because in 1999 Chris was named Conservation Farmer of the Year in Washington County, Tennesse – the only woman to ever receive the title.
