Horse Creek Farm is a Pioneer Century Farm in Chucky, Tennessee, owned and operated by Scott and Emmy Armstrong. They have been an HCF brand since 2018. They have three children in their herd: Andrew, Harper, and Wade. They take pride in being a Grade A dairy and a place for kids of all ages. Over the last five years, the Armstrongs have transformed the farm into a place where people can gather for fun and educational activities related to farming, specifically to the dairy industry. They are excited to be opening their creamery in the near future, Little Lou’s Creamery. More information can be found on their website.
