    A trip down memory lane for Holly and Sierra Enlow is a ride in an old pickup truck along the bumpy dirt roads throughout their 800-acre Hodgenville farm.  

    A family tradition since 1901, the LaRue County property has been a lifelong refuge for the 20-something Enlow sisters, who remember long days in the fields with dad, playing in the creek and selling pumpkins from their pumpkin patch. Now grown and college educated, the two are hoping to plant their future in the same soil as their roots.
