You may remember a story I recently wrote about the Chicken Farm Art Center changing owners.

The Chicken Farm began back to 1971 when Roger Allen, an accomplished artisan, started it. Years later in 1985, Roger met Jerry Warnell. They became good friends and Warnell worked with Allen for over 30 years. Roger Allen passed in 2019 and left a lot of the ownership of the Chicken Farm to Warnell and his wife, Susan but shortly after, they began considering retirement. So, it was put up for sale, but only to the right buyers, someone who shared their passion for the arts to purchase it and carry on the tradition that the Chicken Farm has always been about.

That hope was realized when they met a couple named Chasity and Juston Oakes, who had expressed their love with the art center. The couple purchased it and plan to keep the traditions alive, expand their bed & breakfast, and open their facilities for wedding receptions, birthday parties, family reunions and more events.

I hope you can make it out to the Chicken Farm Art Center to enjoy 2 days of festivities next Friday and Saturday. Be sure to say hi and welcome the new owners of the Chicken Farm...Chasity and Juston Oakes.
