The Boyhood Farm was owned by Earl Carter, Jimmy’s father, from 1928 until 1949. Earl Carter grew corn, cotton, peanuts, and sugar cane on the farm in addition to the large family garden.
Jimmy Carter lived on this farm from the age of four until he departed for college. The farm is restored to its appearance before electricity was installed in 1938.
