Popular Farmer’s Opry Closing

August 9, 2012

After over a decade, the Farmer’s Opry in Chumuckla is closing this fall.

Sandy Wyatt have opened the Farmer’s Opry House almost every Friday and Saturday night with good homestyle food and country entertainment for the past 11 years. But that ends October 6, with Opry opening only for special events, concerts and fundraisers.

Wyatt said he and his wife need a break; they are both reaching retirement age and still work other full tile jobs in addition to the Farmer’s Opry House.

Thursday morning, the Farmer’s Opry posted the following on their Facebook page:

“We want to officially thank everyone in our community (and across the US) for helping us fulfill our dreams over the past 11 years. We’re thankful to have met folks who we would have never otherwise met. We love our community and our family will always be here to support Chumuckla and the surrounding area. The Sawmill Band will continue to perform special events around our area and even at the Opry on occasion.”

    You hate to see good things come to an end. I have been fortunate enough to enjoy the good food and entertainment on several occasions when in the area. Wonderful music and great people. Thanks.

    It was good to have a place were civilized people could go have a good time, without have to deal with a bunch of drunk lushs.

    I can see you taking a break and enjoying some form of retirement, but I hope you open at least once every couple of months or so. We need you.
