Four generations of the Alexander’s have been farming the land between Hayesville and the Chatgue Reservoir. In the early 50’s Robert Alexander cut and milled enough Red Oak and Hemlock from the farm to build the beginnings of his new business, a dairy farm. Now retired, his children have leased the land to a solar energy company that plans to flatten the land for the PV arrays. But, before the bulldozers came we have deconstructed and reclaimed the beautiful wood by hand so that it can live on in new structures and projects and its real value be appreciated.
