Farm Name? HELP!

Help! We recently started selling eggs and our egg cartons must be labeled. If we are going to all that trouble, We might as well have a name for our farm. And as we grow, we will need the name even more!

We are in Texas. On a small 'farm' on top of the hill. We have a pasture and tank out from and wooded area in the back with another tank. Right now we have goats, ducks, geese, chickens, quail, hogs, horses, and all sorts of birds, dogs, and a barn cat. We currently only sell eggs. We have only been here two years and it's a work in progress! We plan to sell any abundance from our garden this summer. Hopefully our fruit trees will thrive as well. We want to be a small diversified family farm selling what we have extra. We are also looking into bees! And I hope to sell herbs, teas, and homemade bath/beauty products! (I do have a side blog/bussiness called Tawny's Thriving Home and a Home Day Care called Wee Ones PreSchool)

We want a name that is creative and fun, that sticks with you and is also classy. Something related to the bible would be good. Or classic literature. Or alluding to my husband's Scottish heritage. I would *Really* like something related to family. Or home. But really family. Kinda a way to pay to tribute to the distant family member who practically took me in as a daughter and taught me the love of farming! A love my husband and I hope to pass down to our children some day! My husband also found country living interesting but learned to love farming from me!

Here is what we have came up with... But none of it clicks!

Oak Hill Farm
Turkey Creek Family Farm
{Last name} Castle Acres
{Last Name) Acres
Second Noah Farm (People joke and say my husband thinks he's Noah)
Cotton Wood Farm (Cotton Wood Tree at entrance)
Next Generation Family Farm

I would Love to hear your ideas!

Hi Tawny, Cotton Wood Family Farm sounds really nice. Now if you named it Star Trek : The Next Generation Farm the trekies would flock to your place in droves! lol! Just Joking. Good Luck with choosing your farm name.

Hi,
In smithville tx there is a place called Oak Hill Farm and Feed and then there is Oak Hill Dairy which supplies milk to most convenience stores in central Texas. So I would definitely stay away from the oak hill theme! Good luck!

We based the farm name from the family name translated to english.
