Taylor’s Tunis is a family farm operated by Bruce and Debbie Linebaugh, as well as their two children and three granddaughters. The business started in 2007 with one market, the Clinton County Farmers’ Market, with a little bit of “extra” produce. Now Taylor’s Tunis is a frequent vendor at several different markets in our region.
Both Bruce and Debbie came from farm families and farmed while working full-time jobs and raising their family. In 2013, after 30 years of working, they “retired” and officially started Taylor’s Tunis. The name originates from Taylor being their first granddaughter and Tunis being the breed of sheep raised on the farm.
Since its inception, the farm has added other heritage animals such as red wattles/large black hogs and turkeys. They do not use antibiotics or hormones and feed all-natural feed.
In addition to their market presence, Bruce and Debbie have a farm stand at their home where they sell home-raised lamb, pork, chicken and beef (frozen cuts, USDA requirement). They also offer free-range eggs, homemade chips, soaps, lotions, jams and jellies and much more. Their greenhouse/high tunnel allows the farm to provide fresh produce year around.
The farm stand is open Mondays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on some Saturdays and Sundays during peak season. Learn more about Taylor’s Tunis by contacting 937-603-8303 or visiting www.taylorstunis.com.
