John Manley

Owner & Operations Manager

I am currently still running my landscaping business, all while managing the farm operations, and trying to figure out what to do with all of Deanna’s crazy ideas!  I enjoy hunting, the outdoors and I hardly ever meet a stranger.  I love my family, the Lord and enjoy traveling and spending quality time together.  We decided to start this journey together along with our daughter, Maleah, and many friends.  I hope you will come out to see us and have some fun making memories on the farm!

Deanna Manley

Owner & Office Manager

I graduated from New Hope High School and am happily married to my husband, John Manley.  We have one daughter, Maleah, and lots of pets!  I enjoy decorating, creating, and crafting whether that be teaching art, decorating for events, or junkin’ and upcyclin’… name it and I have probably tried it.  I love music, singing, and serving the Lord.  I am a homeschool mom and enjoy volunteering my time as Landmark Academy’s National Beta Club Sponsor.  I have always loved children, community, and family. I am so excited to start this new journey with my family!

Hayley Kelly

Event Planner & Coordinator


Two words…...Chaos Coordinator.  I’ve been happily married for 25 years to a man who is truly my best friend.  The chaos that comes along with an entrepreneur and three children ages 20, 17, and 8 always keeps me going.  I love starting new adventures, especially when they start with lots of chaos!!!  That way, I can create and execute a plan to organize the chaos.  When Deanna asked me to be the Event Planner for JDM Family Farm, I knew it was a fit for me.  She and I have been friends for over 20 years, and she is definitely the brains to any project we have worked on in the past.  However, she needs a CHAOS coordinator for sure!


Runell Branum

Administrative Assistant

I have been happily married to husband, Lenard Branum, since 1979, and we have four children and lots of grands, great-grands, and now great-great-grands.  We love living here on the farm with our family and just the day to day interaction of the comings-and-goings here.  Our lives have been wonderfully spent serving God, going to church, and filling our hearts with the love of family.  We retired in 2008 from a company started from the ground up in the 70s, Branum Contracting, Inc.  You may see me around the farm, but you will have to look closely as I am usually known to stand supportively in the background of things!


Charlene (Sheeney)

Caterer & Sheeney's Manager

Charlene has lived in this area for over 40 years and enjoy the small-town life, baking, and entertaining!  Her life revolves around faith, family, and church, and she cherishes all time spent with loved ones, and is the aunt of the farm's owner.  Several years ago, while being employed as a nanny, the children nicknamed her Sheeney, and we think this is the perfect name for our Concessions Building.  Charlene will be operating Sheeney’s and we hope you will come and join us for some homemade sweet treats, snacks, and breads while on the farm.
