Today volunteers from the 317th MXS conducted a fresh water wash down of the C-130E Hercules, “The Spirit of Abilene” AKA “Stubby” just inside the Dyess AFB main gate. It was a Herculean task to wash such a large aircraft, but we got it done. She is now sitting pretty thanks to the efforts of MSgt Denapoli and SrA Harman. Thanks for organizing this event. ...

Christmas at the Farm is coming back to Denton Valley Farms for another Christmas Season!
We know it's difficult to think about Christmas when it is 95 degrees outside, but the fact is that Christmas At The Farm will be opening to the public next month! We have been hard at work for years to bring a Christmas experience unlike anything The Big Country has ever seen before.
Opening night for the 2019 season will be November 29th. The full Christmas schedule will be posted on both our website and Facebook pages soon.
The entire farm will be transformed into a winter wonderland with a family friendly atmosphere. This year will be bigger and better with a light display 3 times larger than 2018, and more hayride trailers to cut down on wait times and lines. Our display this year will incorporate the latest technology and custom made elements that can be seen nowhere else.
In the spirit of Christmas, we want to give back to our community that has shown us such overwhelming support through the years. We will be giving $1,000 to two deserving Big Country Families this Christmas season. One civilian family and one military family (who will be home for Christmas while mom or dad is deployed) will be receiving these gifts. You can nominate a family simply by filling out the form on our website and sending it back to us via email, fax, or drop it by the Farm Store during operating hours. The winners will be announced in early December. We thank everyone for supporting our farm, our family, and all of our hard working local employees. Let's all remember the reason for the season and get ready to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year...... West Texas style!
