Stillwaters Farm in Corryton, TN is a historic farm operated by Marv and Peg Adam since 1993. We raise blueberries and wild blackberries, as well as naturally produced eggs and lavender.
To provide high quality local products, grown with sustainable and natural methods, in a pleasant peaceful and safe environment for people and animals.
Our farm is a the remaining acreage of the Gibbs community Doctor of the early 1900's. Doc Jenkins ran his practice and the farm on an original larger acreage. His office still stands on the property along with most of the original out buildings and the craftsman style farm house.
Sustainable Farm Definition (according to Peggy) - An agricultural system in which the natural cycles work in concert with one another with little or no intervention from human actions that stop the biological processes - in essence a closed system in stead of an open system.
Peggy Adam grew up on a ranch in Nebraska. Growing up on a ranch was delightful, raising prize winning sheep, beef and dairy cattle for 4-H, getting out of school to help with the sheep shearing, learning how to drive a tractor during hay baling season. Not to mention there was always plenty of fresh, hormone free milk and butter to go around. Peggy went on to receive a Master's degree in Zoology from Ohio State University and still loves the smell of hay, new calves and the wonder of what bugs can do in the garden.
Marv Adam grew up in the military and moved all over the United States and Europe. He received a Masters in Geological Engineering from Missouri School of Mines in Rola. Rola, Missouri is the location of his Grandparents farm that brings fond childhood memories of tending the garden with his grandpa Valentine. He currently owns Capstone Enterprises a mining consulting firm. In his spare time, Marv fixes and engineers all of the many, many things that need fixing or creating on the farm from, large irrigation systems to new fences to simple latches that work.
