Dull's Tree Farm

Dull’s Tree Farm in Thorntown has much to be proud of, including a recent win of the 2016 John Arnold Award for Rural Preservation, presented by Indiana Landmarks and Indiana Farm Bureau.

Owners of the Boone County farm, Tom and Kerry Dull, are being honored for their commitment to saving and restoring the farm’s historic buildings. The farm has added and expanded agritourism offerings since 1985, and Tom says this has helped them to be able to preserve the buildings.

The Dulls are very involved not only in agricultural preservation, but education as well. Read more.

The Dulls have preserved several buildings, including a pin-frame barn originally built in 1888, which is today used for an event space and welcome area. The couple lives in the original 1869 farmhouse, and they turned the original granary into a wreath barn. There are also three historic log cabins at the farm, which the Dulls purchased from other Indiana counties, dismantled and then rebuilt on their land.
