Who we are
We are Ryan and Ellen Gray, owners and shepherds at Autumn Earth Acres. Our small 8 acre homestead is located in Lawrenceburg, TN - in the Southern Middle region of the state. We are about 1 hour Southwest of Nashville, TN as well as an hour Northwest of Huntsville, AL and about an hour Northeast of Florence, AL.
We operate our farm for our own benefit and occasionally have harvest to share. We do not operate a large farm and are not open to the public or produce enough to fill consistent orders.
We raise a handful of miniature Jersey cattle and use a dual-registered bull. We have approximately 8 good dairy sheep ewes and use an excellent high-percentage East Friesian ram. We do not breed pigs, but take reservations for pork early in the year and purchase purebred Berkshire piglets to raise in our wooded area on the property. We also keep a small flock of Welsummer and Marans hens for beautiful brown eggs.

Unregistered mini Jerseys for meat, pets, or homestead milkers
- Unregistered dairy sheep for homestead milkers
- Bottle lambs
- Lamb and pork meat shares by the half or whole

Our Farm is Hitting the Market SOON!
Hey there! We are Ryan and Ellen Gray, owners of Autumn Earth Acres. We're dedicated to our small farm and sustainable practices, but have big dreams that are pulling us closer to Florence, AL, about an hour SW of us. We'll be considering some different options moving forward, but we expect to either sell or rent our home and farm in Lawrenceburg, TN. We'd love to talk to interested buyers before we list it with a realtor. We won't be ready to move out until spring of 2019, but that is fast approaching!
Here are some details about our lovely slice of heaven!
