arkeys’ Valley is an area around the Chickalah; pronounced Cha-key-lah. It is about eight miles south of Dardanelle on Highway 27 in Yell County. Nestled at the foot of Spring and Chickalah Mountains, we have creeks, abundant wildlife, and more. We have a celebrity living out here. Harkeys’ Valley is home to Tusk, the Arkansas Razorbacks mascot!
I always enjoy watching animals and look forward to the arrival of the hummingbirds every year. We don’t have as many this year, but there are plenty to enjoy and they keep me making over two gallons of hummingbird food every other day! Life in the country is what suits me. Out here we garden, raise our own eggs, ride horses, go for horse drawn wagon rides, host cookouts, and enjoy porch time in our rocking chairs.
