The Frank Turner Farms story is not one of "bright lights and bright stars" nor is it one that has been passed down from generation to generation. It is quite simple. Frank tended the livestock on a small family farm in South Mobile County as a young boy. He dreamed of one day owning his own farm with his livestock.
From humble beginnings, Frank along with his wife, Penny, saved enough money to purchase some land in west Mobile. Through the years, for his birthdays, Christmases and all of the other major holidays, Frank asked for cows and cows he received. To their west Mobile farm, the Turner family eventually added several hundred acres in Lucedale, Mississippi and several thousand acres in Lowndes County, Alabama, allowing Turner Farms to serve their customers from three different locations.
With much hard work and determination, what started out as a hobby because of the simple love of cattle, has turned into a lucrative cattle operation. Frank and his family have many people to thank for contributions making their progression in the cattle business a wonderful journey.
Today, Frank's eyes still light up as he rides through his field looking at his "babies." Frank now dreams of retiring from his road construction business to spend more time with his cattle. Who knows? Maybe one day, the Turner Farms story will be one that continues from generation to generation.
