Agri Arkansas April 2017
This April, Agri Arkansas visits Across the Creek Farm in West Fork. Terrell Spencer, with his wife Carla and their 3 children got their first batch of chickens in 2007. Today they are raising over 10,000 broilers on pasture; as well as a good sized flock of laying-hens. "Spence" as Terrell is commonly known, served a total of 9 years in the Army, both on active-duty and in the reserves. It was his experiences during a combat tour in Iraq as a machine gunner that drew him into farming. Through a combination of farming and faith, the farm has been a place of healing and growth for the Spencer family. Also, we will visit Little Rock Urban Farming, a community-based food enterprise in the heart of Little Rock.
