The Baxleys« Meet More Farmers
Meet Marion County family farmers Neal and Amanda Baxley. Neal was the 2013 SC Farm Bureau Young Farmer and Rancher program chair.
The Baxley farm is a diversified operation including row crops such as peanuts, corn, soybeans, tobacco, cotton, as well as butterbeans and other produce sold at their farm store. The store also serves delicious dinners during the week.
Other farm crops include flax and canola. In recent years five new center pivot irrigation systems have increased crop productivity. A hog contract operation with 10 hog houses adds diversity to the farm. A former grain buying station was purchased to increase the farm’s grain storage capacity.
Amanda works in the office with bookkeeping chores as well as in the farm store.
