The Farm at Windy Hill
The Farm at Windy Hill is a working and learning farm located just a mile up the road from Camp DeSoto. The farmers work the land sustainably to grow beautiful produce, flowers, meat, and eggs for the Camp DeSoto Dining Hall as well as the surrounding Lookout Mountain community.
Phil and Marsha Hurt dreamed of a camp farm for years, and in 2014 The Farm at Windy Hill was born! Campers get to take Farming and Cooking classes at Windy Hill, we get to enjoy farm-fresh vegetables and eggs in our Dining Hall, and the farm has become a wonderful way to connect with and engage our local community.
The Farm is managed by Brent Halderman, who shares the work with his wife, Megan Halderman, as well as year-round farmers Ashley Dempsey, Katie Kalsuche, and Jordan Nelson. Christy Brandon is the Farm Chef who prepares food for Windy Hill events, the market, and even the Dining Hall at Camp DeSoto.
In addition to the year-round team, several seasonal farmers and cooks join the team each spring and summer.
