It all started with Albert Lee & Melba Rose Phillips on February 24th in 1957. They bought the 70 acre Farm in Fair Grove, Mo for $2,950.00 with a monthly payment of $35.00 and paid that note off on July 31, 1963.
When they bought the Farm there was no running water on the property. They would bring water up from the bottom to cook and bathe with. An outhouse was used as the latrine for many years. The original house of the property burned down January of 1971 and a new one was built which still stands to this day.
Albert & Melba raised 8 children on the property. They were married for 62 years before Albert passed away July 23, 2006 just after his 80th birthday. Despite the loss of "the love of her life", Melba lived 9 more years on the property before passing away herself February 15,2015, just shy of her 87th birthday. Both passed in their home on the farm where they wanted to be.
The farm continues to operate as Albert & Melba wished, currently by two of their sons Frank & Jim Phillips, & grandson James Phillips.
Phinity derives from the (Phillips) last name and Albert & Melba’s wish "for the farm to go on forever" (infinity).
Mashing the two together Phinity Ranch was born.
We at Phinity Ranch want to preserve the farming prosperity for posterity. While producing healthy quality stock. Whether that be to pass stock on to another farm, providing food for tables or simply growing our own heard.
