Description: 

The location of Tull's farm here is about where Faulkner himself put it on his 1936 map of Yoknapatawpha. It does not appear directly in the narrative, but it can help us place the story's other locations. Since the narrator sees his father, Res Grier, ride off from the "board tree" to Tull's, where he makes a deal with Tull involving the dog they both own and the work they have promised the church, and arrive back at the tree just as the noon break ends, the church must be fairly close to the farm.
