The Haley Farm, a story

The Haley Farm

*The Haley Farm is celebrated on this date in 1994.   This retreat is a 157-acre farm that once belonged to Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alex Haley.

Purchased in April 1994 by the Children's Defense Fund (CDF), Haley Farm is a heartfelt, welcoming countryside retreat consisting of guest cottages, a chapel, a meeting lodge, and a library. The facility connects young leaders and activists with the glorious heritage of the struggle for freedom.

It is where policymakers and community builders come to connect, recharge their spiritual and physical batteries, and brainstorm strategies. Located in Clinton, TN., the Children's Defense Fund, and its many programs have transformed Haley Farm into a training ground for coming generations of leadership, advocacy, and service for children and families.
