Boyer Farm was founded by two young bachelor brothers from Illinois, Asa and Joe Randle. They built their home there in 1911 along with owning and operating Randle Sawmill on the land. Their sister Sidney Ann Randle married W.D Boyer and their son Asa Lewis Boyer moved in with his uncles in 1892 at the age of seventeen. He purchased adjoining land and married Carolyn Taylor in 1920. Carolyn was the daughter of Reuben Ross Taylor and Myrtle Perkins Taylor. Reuben Taylor was a tobacconist who owned a large farm in the New Providence area.
Upon the passing away of the two Randle brothers, the entire farm and original farm house was passed to their nephew, Asa Boyer. Asa and Carolyn along with their two sons Reuben and William worked the land raising beef cattle, corn, soybeans, burley tobacco and dark fired tobacco. They also raised swine and produced delicious country hams, bacon and sausage smoked in the smoke houses behind the farm house.
Through the years Reuben and William married and raised their children on the same land they were raised on. Reuben and William inherited the land after Asa’s death in 1966. William passed away in 1976 and his wife Dorothy along with Reuben managed the farm. The two eventually divided the land into two separate parcels. Reuben passed away in 2002 and willed his land to his wife, Joyce, who deeded the land to her three children Carolyn, Waller and LuEllyn as well as their spouses.
Boyer Farms became a way of life for the past five generations that have shared this land in family and faith. Their wish is for Boyer Farms to carry on and share those traditions and beautiful land with families today. They have partnered with G.C. Land Development and Crabbe Construction to develop the land into charming southern haven for families to enjoy for years to come.
