For the past 24 years, September and October have been the busiest months for Clay Meeks and his family at Pumpkin Patch Farms.
Michael Satterfield grew up farming in the Delta, so he’s used to working hard. He went to Delta State University and was supposed to study business to eventually return to the farm, but took art classes as his electives –– because he enjoyed the classes, not for an “easy A,” he said. Well, when he found out his daughter, Presley, now 12, was on the way, he buckled down and got serious. He met with his advisor to plan a course of action.
In the throes of COVID-19, Millette and Lee Nabors were faced with a tough choice: Either open Trailhead Bike & Bed, a lodging site off of Tanglefoot Trail, or put it off.
“‘We’re too far gone now to stop,’” Millette remembers thinking. “The day that I posted on Facebook that we were open and ready for business, the next day I actually had all four rooms rented.”
We channeled all things “hygge” – the Norwegian art of coziness – when decorating our glamping tent. Complete with a bookshelf, record player, wine serving tray and rugs, this tent makes for the perfect long weekend.
Imagine sinking your toes in sand and soaking up the sun as the spray of salty water offers cooling comfort on an exotic island. Or perhaps you round the corner of a trail in the mountains, opening up to a flurry of colors, anchored by a turquoise lake.
