Landowners Who Rock - Fourtee Acres Tyrone and Edna Williams - Episode 75

This is a special in-person episode located in Enfield, North Carolina just off the I-95 with Tyrone and Edna Williams of Fourtee Acres. They lease out land for farming, own certified trees, and garden for local markets. They are proud of their legacy and have a great family to lean on at their multiple-use farm. We start our conversation off by talking about landowner assistance and how they are able to operate. They have diversified and become a well-known farmer's market treat from their gardening which Edna spearheads. Edna is also a member of the landowner group called ForestHer NC and we have some great resources available to women landowners that Edna enjoys.

Edna Williams: It is her main goal, over the years and at her present professional retirement time, is to provide a supportive environment for those she comes in contact with. Informing the community about nutritional value and practices is important to her as it also enrich her life and others with learning while providing excitement.  As an educator it is most memorable and exciting to see the sparks in the eyes of the community and children as they are exposed to living on a farm and growing diverse vegetables not common to the area. Edna feels blessed and thankful for the opportunity to be in a position where new challenges present themselves every day.  

Happily transplanted from the city limits of Enfield, NC, to the beautiful county side of Enfield, Edna lives with her husband, her better half, Tyrone Williams.  They have three young adult, single, handsome sons, Trevelyn, Tremaine, and Tyron.  All of whom have artistic aspirations and existential careers in music, computer science and computer game design.  Edna is a member of the New Bethel Baptist Church in Enfield, where you will find her on any given day working in one of the family three gardens and on Sunday, singing in the choir. 

Tyrone Williams spent 30 years with the Employment Security Commission, and what is now the North Carolina Department of Commerce in local, regional and state office positions. He ended his career as the Workforce Relations Manager in the Employment Service (ES) Section of the Division of Workforce Solutions in the Raleigh state office. Additionally, in 2011 he was awarded the Governor’s Award for Outstanding State Government Service from Governor Beverly Perdue. 

In December 2013, he was awarded the Order of the Long Leaf Pine by Governor Pat McCrory for his outstanding state government service and longevity of service to his community and the state on various boards and other civic activities, one of the most prestigious conferred by the governor.   

Since retirement, he has spent time reading, traveling, and learning the “real aspects “of the land that he loves to enhance sustainability, create successional and generational wealth for his family legacy and the land that has been in his family for over 100 years!   

He is married, to the former Edna Mills, and they have three grown sons, Trevelyn, Tremaine and Tyron all of whom are a part of Fourtee Acres, LLC a forestry, tenant farming and natural gardening operation.
