Meet Dell Hill, the newest member of the Alabama Leadership Council. He and his wife, Carolyn, have been NFIB supporters for 30 years, which earned them the NFIB Small Business Champion award in 2012.
Dell and Carolyn own Selwood Farm in Alpine, Alabama, which has been owned by the Hill family since 1948. The two met at Auburn University, got married shortly after they graduated, and returned to the farm. There, they not only continued the family’s cattle operation and turkey mail order business, but also expanded the business to include recreational use. They established the Selwood Hunting Preserve in 1984 and Alabama’s first sporting clays course in 1990.
As a result—and thanks to their welcoming hospitality and service to customers—Selwood Farm and Hunting Preserve has earned numerous awards and media coverage, including being named an Alabama Farm of Distinction and a place to visit by the Alabama Tourism Department.
In addition to their business success, Dell and Carolyn support the NFIB Education Foundation, host events for federal and state elected officials, and are vocal about sharing the concerns of small businesses with legislators. They are also active in their church and community, including with the Talladega Kiwanis Club, Talladega County Farmers Federation, Talladega Junior Welfare League, and many more organizations.
NFIB/AL is grateful for Dell and Carolyn’s longtime support and welcome their input and leadership on the Alabama Leadership Council!
