Sheets Farm

Davie County

A site that came under permanent protection in 2001, this immaculate twenty-two-acre tract of land was placed under conservation easement by its caring owner, Bobby Sheets.  Mr. Sheets, who has been a resident of Davie County his entire life, has always been a conservation-minded individual and a freelance ecologist.  The property plays host to four historic structures, including a family home-place and outbuildlings, all built in the latter nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.  Notably, Mr. Sheets has single-handedly and painstakingly spent the last six years restoring the various structures.  These facilities truly are remarkable and words alone cannot do them justice.

Additionally, Mr. Sheets has created a unique garden on the site housing a wide array of unique native trees and shrubs.  Some species on site include Fothergilla, Bottlebrush Buckeye, Flowering ash, Paw Paw, Magnolias, Oaks, Hydrangeas, Mountain Laurel, Cyrilla, Azaleas, Stewartia, and many, many more.
