Their great-grandfather, James Minton, Sr., bought a 20-acre parcel that includes the Triple J Farm a decade ago because he said he wanted a place his family could find refuge, whenever they might need. “This will be here for ages,” Minton said. “As long as there’s a descendant from the Minton family, this place will be here for them.”
