A Great Place to Gather.
Foxfire hosts high-quality concerts, weddings, retreats, and private events year-round. The 80-acre ranch boasts a 5,000 square-foot open-air pavilion, an indoor banquet hall, multiple stages, 4 private cabins, outdoor showers, and a full-service catering kitchen.
Musicians love to play here with blue skies as their backdrop. Families joyfully gather here for reunions, quinceaneras and to publicly declare their commitments of love to each other.
Children run freely, finding wonder nestled in the arms of whispering pines and restful oak trees. This is a place where cell phones slow down, the internet is a little finicky, the food feeds your soul and your body remembers.
Foxfire is conveniently located within a short driving distance of Memphis, TN and Oxford, MS, making your customizable retreat to the country easily within reach.

A Letter to the People
At Foxfire Ranch we center rest, relationship building and connecting with one another. This is a space to retreat from the onslaught of daily living, and for dreaming and laughter. Foxfire is an invitation to reconnect with the freedom not to move, or perhaps to move much more slowly. And while we cannot deny the importance of addressing the systemic issues that impact the collective, we must also nurture the spaces for the personal, the intimate, the encounters with strangers who become friends, or at least not so estranged.
There are not many constants, but as long as this red clay lies beneath expansive skies, it is our commitment to be along for the journey, holding space for those who cling to the brightest part of our spirits and selves. The parts hungry for fellowship, affinity, peace and joy.
This is our pledge to you, that when you’re here you are home, you are welcome and you are beloved community. We invite you and yours back, again and again, to reconnect to that quintessential nature, the core of your goodness, the bounty of the mother and the dignity in one another.
So while you can host your special events, ceremonies, festivals and milestones anywhere, understand that the opportunity to engage with Foxfire Ranch is helping us write the next 100 years of our story. This is more than another event venue, this is a legacy.
Peace and Power,

Susie Penman, to hear a little of our story.
Small correction - Where it says Annette Hollowell in the film, that is actually her mother Annie Hollowell - and nobody cooks quite like Big Mama!
