The Volunteer State Community College Foundation held an event at Beretta Vineyards in Mt. Juliet recently to launch the effort to locate a Vol State campus in Wilson County. The McFarland family donated 2.5 acres of land and the college is purchasing an additional 7.5 acres for the campus. It will be located on East Division Street in Mt. Juliet, a half mile east of the Mt. Juliet Chamber of Commerce building. It was the site of the long-time McFarland family farm.
