his wife, Sabrina, own Copper Creek
Farm, and he represents the fifth generation of his family to farm this land.
"For us it's all about educating
kids about farms and where their food
comes from," says Grogan. "You'd be
amazed at how many things they learn
when they get their hands into the soil
or get to milk a cow."
The 51-acre farm has a general
store, petting zoo barn, watermelon
cannon, 100-foot barn-loft slide and
food for sale.
Copper Creek Farm also hosts a
corn maze and pumpkin patch in the
