Lily Wofford was raised up on a small farm south of El Dorado along with two sisters, by her parents Tommy and Mary Rowland. After high school, Lily attended the University of Central Arkansas where she received a Bachelor’s of Business Administration. While attending UCA, Lily worked at a local horse ranch which introduced her to Tyler Wofford. Lily’s dream has always been to own and operate a boarding facility and teach lessons. In 2014 Tyler and Lily Wofford took a leap of faith and embarked on their journey for Wofford Ranch. In 2015 Lily and Tyler wanted to offer a fall festival for families to come together while promoting their mission. Wofford Ranch’s mission is to educate, enrich, inspire, and empower the lives of others in the community through the gifts of the horse. The community’s response to the Pumpkin Palooza was such a success that the Wofford’s are looking forward to a annual tradition for many years to come.
