Davis Peeler

Davis is a full-time farmer living in Anderson with his two children. He and his family own and operate a raw milk dairy, Milky Way Farms, where they also farm dry hay and baleage. Over the years, Milky Way Farms has had to adapt to the many difficulties of the dairy industry. The farm now bottles its own milk and has recently added robotics to prepare the farm for the future. Davis is a past SCFB YF&R Committee Chair. He is a former state Achievement Award winner and placed runner-up nationally. He has been active in FFA and 4-H, and currently serves on the Anderson County Farm Bureau Board of Directors.

As a mentor, he believes he can support in the following:

  • Adapting business models
  • Taking risks
  • Being a farmer and a dad
  • Dealing with hardships
