About Our Beef
About Our Farm
Donnell Century Farm is located in the Spring Creek Community of Madison County, near Jackson, Tennessee. John Donnell settled the original family farm in 1835. We are proud to be farming six generations later. The farm is currently owned and operated by Billy and Rose Ann Donnell and their son Andrew with his family. Our products are diverse, ranging from corn and cotton to natural Angus beef. We recently expanded our operations to include field trips and festivals for the public to enjoy and learn more about farming.
We have been selling beef on a small scale to friends and family since 1970. Their encouragement and appreciation for our beef led to the expansion of our beef business. Beginning in spring of 2008 Donnell Century Beef began selling to the public. Currently we sell at the Jackson and Memphis farmers' markets and through phone or e-mail orders.
