Russell Farm is an historic farm on the south side of Burleson that was donated to the City of Burleson in October 2011 by the Boren family for historical, art and agricultural/natural uses. Charlie and Louise Boren transformed the farm into the Russell Farm Art Center. The property was renamed Russell Farm when the farm was donated to the City. The 30-acre property is located at 405 W. County Road 714. The City envisions Russell Farm to be a center for life, history and art.

Historic and art programs are being planned by two advisory committees created by the Burleson City Council. These programs are being conducted in the public areas which comprise about 11 acres of the farm. A public garden is being planned for this area as well.

The City is in discussions with the Burleson Independent School District to utilize approximately 16 acres of the property for the district’s Future Farmers of America (FFA) program. The City and BISD envision FFA participants utilizing the property to house livestock for stock shows and as a field laboratory for ranchland training. Approximately three acres will be preserved as a natural grassland and vegetation reserve.

Visitors are welcome to tour the galleries, stroll along the nature trails, sit in the shade or participate in workshops and classes. Russell Farm is also available for rental for private events. The original farmhouse, along with its barns and other restored farm buildings are all nestled within stands of native Texas oaks and mesquites.
