The name Tap Root Farm has its genesis in Jeremiah 17: 7-8: "Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord…for he will be like a tree planted by the water, that extends it’s roots by the river and will not fear when the heat comes; it’s leaves will be green, it will not be anxious in a year of drought nor will it cease yielding fruit.” A tree’s “Tap Root” is the main source of food, its’ strength in the storm and sustenance in the drought. It enables the tree to bear fruit in its season. Once the tap root is extended deep into the soil, it is extremely difficult to successfully transplant the tree. Jeremiah 17:7-8 expresses the importance of our roots being properly placed to receive God’s blessings and produce fruit in our lives; hence our family resides on this tract of land known at Tap Root Farm.
The Tap Root residency is basically the same as it was when it was rebuilt in 1909. In 1970 when the kitchen was remodeled, an addition was built on the south side which replaced the original screened back porch. Forty-seven walnut logs were harvested from the farm and made into new kitchen’s cabinets, family room and library paneling and bookcases. The Tap Root Library contains over a thousand volumes many of which were inherited from Dr. Harold E. Ingraham, a Southern Baptist Convention layman and Sunday School leader. The present owners, as antiquarian book collectors, have added a wealth of Tennessee and English history and literary works. The entire interior of the library is insidious to the farm with its walnut shelving, poplar mantel, limestone fire rock and field stone hearth, all harvested from the land. An Italian marble column stands in the front lawn and has been dedicated as the “Praise Stone”. Scripture is inscribed on each of the four sides of the stone depicting the scene beyond i.e. “God came walking in the garden in the morning”; “The cattle on a thousand hills are mine says the Lord” and the Jeremiah 17:7-8 on the face as you view the residence. The praise stone allows one to clearly see examples of the scripture through God’s creation.
There are now 3 generations of the Ingraham family living at Tap Root. Susan and her 2 children, Erica and Kurt, live at “Tap Root Too”. This residence was built in 2004 on top of the hill across Clovercroft Road from the original farm house. This home was built to “bring the outside in” while utilizing the materials from the farm to construct the residency. The windows allow a clear view of many miles of Williamson County scenery. The screened porch and patios are perfect settings for the best memory-making events. The kitchen and great room cabinets are a mixture of cherry and walnut harvested from the farm. The large rock fireplace and rock walls are made from the limestone gathered while clearing the fields for pasture and from a slave fence on the farm.The study houses the red wool rug that was a part of the negotiated purchase of Tap Root Farm in 1961. Tap Root Too is built of the land, stands overlooking the original farm and is rooted in the heritage of Tap Root Farm.
Every acre of meadow, grassy pastures, crop producing fields and woodlands provide a variety of agricultural yield. Wildlife continues to abound even though three subdivisions are adjacent to the land. Tap Root’s black beef cattle have pastured the rolling hills and meadows since 1961. The land has produced abundant hay and grains for their winter forage. The farm’s 2+ acre garden and orchard provide winter frozen & canned goods for family and friends to enjoy. Our beef feedlot puts home grown natural above-prime beef on many customers’ tables. Due to the hard work of Russ Harkai, Farm Manager, and the individuals that work with him, this working farm continues to keep its’ roots in agriculture and produces many “fruits”. We hope you’ll enjoy your visit to Tap Root . . . make it soon!!!

Tap Root Farm Summer Camp is only 4 miles from Cool Springs Galleria and is on a 350 acre beef cattle and equestrian ranch. Campers have Big Time Fun: riding horses, tug-o-wars and playing at the creek, learning all about gardening and preserving foods to eat year-round, visiting the honey bee hives and blueberry patch, playing games, running races, hiking over the farm and enjoying the freedom of nature. All Campers are in a Family Farm Team (10 Campers) and compete for points during the week to win a pool party. Friday is a full day with our final equestrian event; lunch is prepared by the campers from the fruits of our labor during the week with the garden vegetables and Tap Root Farm Homegrown All- Natural Beef Burgers. Our game quiz show determines the final winners for the pool party. Campers say one of the best activities of the week is Friday Night Under the Stars- when campers’ families attend our meal prepared on the bonfire and hear the sharing of great memories of the week around the fire. We see the Horseback Drill Team Performance by campers who have learned their pattern during the week, go on a night snipe hunt and sleep under the stars. This is a spectacular conclusion to a memorable and fun week at Tap Root Farm Summer Camp! Sign up to reserve you space as camp fills quickly- we have limited space.

"This is the best beef I've ever tasted- we bought 1/4 beef which has fed our family of 4 for 10 months. It is flavorful and tender and easy to cook. The convenience of having it in my freezer makes it easy to pull out and quickly cook. I love knowing that my family is eating healthy, high quality nutritious meat." Tabetha Taylor
"It is great beef, I like supporting our local farmers and knowing exactly what my family is eating. Knowing our food source is important to us and we love going to the farm to pick up our beef. My kids always want to go see Susan" Theresa
"I was not a big beef eater because it was tough on my system; but when I tried Tap Root Farm Beef, I found that it was easy on my sensitive stomach. It is lean, fresh and flavorful. I now buy 1/2 beef at a time and feed my family Tap Root beef 3 or more times per week. We love the different cuts and the many ways to cook them. The ground beef is as good as the steaks. The roasts in the crock pot are great for dinner when I have long days at work." Sonja Cesnick.
Bottom or Top Round Roast or London Broil Recipe
15 Minutes to Prepare/ 30+/- Minutes to Cook
Place top rack of oven about 8 inches from the top heating element & Preheat oven: 375-400.
- Place the Top/Bottom Round Roast or London Broil on a cutting board. To tenderize, use quick jabs with the long tines of a fork all over the meat so the surface is covered with small holes.
- Make a rub with onion powder, garlic salt, pepper, and sage. Rub evenly over the entire roast, massaging in with your fingers. (Substitute Option: You may use any variety of seasonings to meet your taste bud’s desire; EX: if using the beef for Fajitas: use cilantro, cumin and lime)
- Evenly coat the roast in soy sauce & crushed Mandarin Oranges with its’ juice (Substitute Option: Balsamic Vinegar, Wine, Beer, Lemon/Lime Juice, Pineapple Juice, Marinades of your Choice). Massage marinade into the beef. Be Generous with your marinade especially if you are preparing the beef and allowing it to “soak” before cooking/serving.
- Coat with flour evenly by pressing each side of the roast into the flour.
- Spread butter (Substitute Option: Olive Oil, Peanut Oil, Coconut Oil) on all sides of beef over the flour using your fingers.
- Place roast in a pan/glass baking dish so that the largest surface area is facing up. Bake it in the oven on the top rack for 15-20 minutes. Turn the meat over to the opposite side and add marinade juices to bottom of the pan. Continue roasting for an additional 15 minutes. (Times will vary with the size of the beef roast)USE A MEAT THERMOMETER to get your cooking time right- you chooooose: Medium Rare/Medium/Done…the longer you cook it the more it should be braised with the marinade juice from the bottom of your cooking pan- cover it with foil after it browns if you cook it longer-this will keep it moist.
- Remove the roast from the oven and allow it to rest for 5 minutes before slicing thin. It is delicious served with the marinade juices in the pan.
NOTE: These are cuts from strong muscle areas of Beef. When I am cooking these cuts, I do steps 1-3 the night before & place the roast in a plastic bag to marinate overnight in the fridge. Then it is a” quick bake” for dinner the next night. I hope you enjoy this awesome cut of beef---Warning: Don’t waste this recipe, your time, energy, seasonings or electricity on any other beef…cook & serve the best to your Family and Friends…Tap Root Farm All-Natural Beef !!!
