Tom Farrell - Hawkeye, IA
I served and retired from the military (Army-1972 to 1992). In 2014, I officially moved back to Iowa to be with family. My wife and I currently live between Waucoma & Hawkeye.
My passion has been to use the resources from the farm (i.e. trees) for lumber to feed my woodworking hobby (22 Years). I just had another 3000+ board feet sawn. It seems to air dry for 5 -7 years before I can get to it and build furniture and other projects.
In 2014 we established Farrell’s Oak Creek Estate, LLC. We now run a small campground with electricity, modern showers and laundry. Additionally, the business sponsors a 5/10 KM Trail Run/Walk on the 1st Saturday in October. Most of my time and energy is spent on upkeep of grounds, equipment and woodworking which keep me busy.
