What about us?
We are frequently asked, “What does RRR stand for”. The answer is simply that RRR Tree Farm was taken as a dba by the three original founders, all of which had a name beginning with R: Glenn R. Howell, Reid Howell, and Red Alderman.
Guests who came during the early years fondly remember visiting with Mr. Glenn; after he got older he was usually found around the stove staying warm and sharing stories with the folk who didn’t feel like they could make the trip up the mountain. He and Miss Eula lived on the Todd Farm. Miss Eula could usually be found in the house fixing the next meal. We miss them.
Reid Howell is Glenn and Eula’s son and the owner the Todd Farm. Reid and his wife, Alice, live in Kernersville, but Reid comes to Todd almost every weekend. You’ll find him on the tractor ready to take you on a hayride.
Red Alderman has retired from the RRR Tree Farm.
When the popularity of the RRR Tree Farm grew to the point one farm couldn’t handle all the guests, we asked Wayne Phillips and the Laurel Knob Farm to join us. Wayne and his family provide the complete RRR experience on the Laurel Knob Farm.
