You’ll fall in love with Jubilee Farm

Imagine it: a small yellow farm house on top of a hill surrounded by cactus and sage. Jubilee Farm started as the fantasy of husband-and-wife Jade and Ben, but it’s now a real place that grows with each day in Denton, TX.

When I drove up to Jubilee Farm for the first time, I was instantly was taken back to my small town upbringing. I scrambled out of the car and I was met by the warm and funny Jade along with two bushy puppies and a lamb.

I went giddy and listened to Jade’s vision for Jubilee Farm: to create a place where the door is always open, and to feed their community. What a better way to love friends and strangers than with a colorful, overflowing table of food from your own hard working hands?

Jade guided me through the farmhouse, full of collected charms both old and new. The coffee table made by the husband as a gift to the wife. The vibrant yellow mid-century chair. The cowhide rug. The fresh-cut cactus. The brass armadillo. Boots caked in mud.

Before I left for the day, Ben showed me their newly plowed ground. “First comes the small crops,” he said. “Then as time comes, more and more will spread across their acreage.”

Jade also left me with some words of wisdom: “Eat carbs. They’re good for the soul.”

I tell you Ben and Jade, my soul is full and rested from visiting Jubilee Farm.

These are two of my favorite people. Denton LOVES Ben and Jade. You captured their folksy farm chic whimsical quirkiness perfectly.

Jubilee Farms is a little glimpse of Heaven on earth. It is not all about the land and house but more about the hearts and souls who dwell within. You will never meet better examples of God’s grace, love and mercy. Their servants’ hearts shine through their hopes and dreams and hard work. They are a wonderful addition to Denton’s community and a blessing to all who meet them, have the opportunity to visit their farm or enjoy the fruits of their labors of love. Great article and beautiful pictures! Thank you West Elm Dallas and Samuel Melton.
