Farmers Allen and Cindy Gentry have lived on their family farm in Franklin, Tennessee, for more than 30 years. Allen’s family has owned the farm since 1848, making the Gentrys’ three grown children the seventh generation to be a part of the farm’s history.

The family remains deeply connected to their heritage and stays busy working their almost 400-acre farm. But they agree that the holiday season is the perfect time to slow down and reflect on family as they celebrate their faith.
