This article is about the Greene Family Farm in the TV Series. You may be looking for the Greene Family Farm in the Comic Series or the Video Game.

Greene Family Farm refers to the farmland previously owned by Hershel Greene. The farm served as the primary setting in Season 2 of AMC's The Walking Dead.

Pre-Apocalypse

The farm has been owned by Hershel’s family for over 160 years. When Hershel took over the farm, a larger farming company attempted to buy the farm from Hershel, offering three times the actual price of the farm. Hershel refused to sell the farm, even when they were struggled to grow crops due to a drought. Whenever the company left Hershel food supplies to feed his cattle, he’d leave them and let them rot. Eventually, the company gave up trying to buy the farm from Hershel.

As well as his wife and daughters to help him on the farm, Hershel also had the help of Otis and his wife, Patricia. Beth’s boyfriend, Jimmy also helped out on the farm.

Post-Apocalypse

Even though power and water were cut off in the beginning of the apocalypse, the farm has its own generator that runs on fuel, fifty heads of cattle, five wells that contain fresh water, and one large creek.

After Carl Grimes is accidentally shot by Otis, the group meets Hershel and his family and continue to stay on his land while looking for Sophia Peletier. The survivors spend the first half of the season at the farm using it as a base of operations to find Sophia but after the barn massacre, Hershel wants Rick Grimes' group to leave since they do not respect his rules. Rick continues to get Hershel to reconsider and eventually convinces him about the nature of the walkers. When Rick captures a survivor named Randall, he decides to take him back to the farm since he was still human, in severe pain from his injured leg, and young. They locked him up in the shed, deciding on his fate. Shane Walsh, believing that Rick was wrong with allowing him to live, goes to the shed and takes Randall away to kill him in a plot to kill Rick.

Shane later confronts Rick on the outskirts of the farm, only to be killed. Carl shoots him after he reanimates, killing him. The gunshot noise caught the attention of a massive herd coming from Atlanta, and they head towards the farm. The survivors make a stand at the farm but quickly realize that the farm is lost. The barn is set on fire and burned by Rick and Carl in an attempt to kill some walkers along with Dale's RV beside it. The group leave the farm and re-group on the Vehicle Jammed Highway to decide what to do next.

8 months later, in Season 3, Andrea gives Merle Dixon the location of the farm so he could find his brother Daryl. She later finds out that the group has moved on to a prison.

Its current status is unknown, but it can be assumed that the entire farm burned to the ground, as the barn fire most definitely spread out of control.
