Our Story

Grayce Wynds Farm is a small horse farm, situated on twenty-six acres of coastal property near Holden Beach, North Carolina.  Bill and Sue Immen purchased the land in 2012 when it was thick with eighteen-foot pine trees.  During the purchase, they were pleased to learn that, in the midst of the pines, stood many majestic hardwoods (red maples, live oaks, gum trees, and bayberry trees).  Machinery was brought in to devour most of the pines, leaving the shade trees.  The property is under a forestry management plan to preserve and to conserve the wooded grounds.

In 2014 Sue retired from public education, serving over thirty years as a teacher and counselor. She likes to say that she traded in children for horses, but actually the farm will be hosting school groups in the near future.  She began studying the piano at the age of five and began playing for churches as a teenager.  Along the way, she began writing devotional columns for church newsletters and had an article published in a counseling publication.  In addition to farm management, she enjoys photography and videography.  She continues to work on a line of "inspirational tshirts," connecting her photos with Bible verses.  She believes in GBP (God's Big Plan) and looks forward to how God will continue to bless Grayce Wynds Farm.  

Bill is originally from New Jersey.  He moved to the Holden Beach area as an employee of General Electric where he worked as a machinist.  He left GE to go into business for himself and currently operates Caretaking and More, a home improvement business.  He loves the horses, but his favorite pastime is fishing.  He, too, has a music ministry, singing bass in churches.  He met Sue at the Holden Beach Chapel where they both served in the music program.  They married in 2010 and have a blended family of seven children and seven grandchildren!  There are currently seven horses, one dog, and five chickens that reside at Grayce Wynds Farm.  They are part of the Immen family, too!
