The perfect team — Sheron and Dan, David and Amy, and Emily, Molly and Casey
Sheron and Dan are your hosts at Scurlock Farms in the beautiful Texas Hill Country.
Dan Scurlock, Owner
Dan grew up as a city boy and we moved to the farm in 1971 when David was 6 weeks old. Dan took to farming and after his father-in-law passed away in 1986, he began upgrading the farm. After graduating from Baylor University, Dan began a lifelong career in insurance. Dan retired in 2009 and has enjoyed improving Scurlock Farms and meeting and visiting with our guests.
Sheron Scurlock, Co-Owner and Vacation Rental Manager
Dan and I chose a home site on the farm in 1997 and built our home along the bluff. We raised our two boys and enjoyed gardening and traveling.
I retired from the insurance field and closed a continuing education business in May, 2015. After my mom’s death in 2010, we remodeled my parent’s home and my mom’s art studio.
Our original intent was to rent the homes long-term. But our two boys and their families love the homes, so we decided to do short-term rentals so we could still enjoy them. I am the oldest of 5 siblings and we still get together at the farm.
We have hosted many fascinating people from 15 different countries and all states, and have also been able to host our family and friends.
After beautifully furnishing the homes, I have enjoyed shared them with others looking for a unique vacation experience.
I still love to read, garden and we travel when we can. We have added chickens to the farm and have had so much fun with them.
David Scurlock, Chief Farm Engineer
David was raised on the farm and met his wife Amy at college. After graduation, they were married and moved back to the farm. They built a beautiful home on the bluff and David is our chief engineer, planner, and muscle around the farm!
David has served with the Georgetown Police Department since graduating from college. Guests feel very secure when staying with us at Scurlock Farms, knowing we are all on site to assist with any needs. No need to worry if you see a police motorcycle on the road each day – it is just David.
David has many talents. He has a woodworking shop and a small wood mill. He cuts dead trees from the farm, mills the wood, then makes hand-turned pens, wine bottle stoppers, and clocks. He says being a police officer is his job, not defining who he is.
Casey, my middle granddaughter also makes beautiful pens. Some guests have chosen the wood they wanted, the pen kit, then watched them use the lathe to make their pens.
David and Casey also design logos, then screen print them onto T-shirts.
Casey is David and Dan’s assistant during hay season. She has driven the truck and trailer for them since she was 10 years old as they load it from the field. Her sisters, Emily and Molly, are not especially interested in farm work. Molly does enjoy gardening and is a big help purring up produce from our garden in the summer.
David and Daniel, our oldest son, designed and installed the farm entryway while Dan and I were away for a long weekend. Talk about being pleasantly surprised and excited when we returned home!
