In the mid 1950’s, Frank Owenby began purchasing the land that is now home to NCF. Frank, a successful businessman, made Marietta his home and longed for a farm life.
During the 1960’s-70’s, the farm was a great producer for agriculture in the area. Campbell’s Soup Company opened a Pepper Plant in the neighboring Union County during this time. This opportunity allowed Frank to sell the peppers that were growing at the Farm to Campbell’s. The family eventually took a step back from the agriculture side of NCF and leased it to other farmers.
The 1980’s- early 2000’s created a new use for the Family Farm. The Owenby Sewing Company had grown into a well-known corporation and the farm was used to entertain their clients to show appreciation for their business.
In 2005, The Owenby Family opened Noontootla Creek Farms to the public. It’s offerings include lodging, fly fishing, sporting clays, and quail hunts.
The Owenby Family welcomes you to NCF and invites you to feel like part of the family.
