Apiaries house the vital bees needed at Lewis Taylor Farms, which are co-owned by William L. Brim and Edward Walker who have cotton, peanut, vegetable and greenhouse operations in Fort Valley, GA, on May 7, 2019.

Mr. Brim talks about the immigration and disaster relief challenges following Hurricane Michael. USDA helped this farm with the Farm Service Agency (FSA) Emergency Conservation Program (ECP) for structural damage cleanup. He also mentions the importance of having Secretary Sonny Perdue, a person with agricultural background, visit and listen to 75 producers six months ago, in southern Georgia.

 

The farm’s operation includes bell peppers, cucumbers, eggplant, squash, strawberries, tomatoes, cantaloupe, watermelon and a variety of specialty peppers on 6,500 acres; and cotton and peanuts on 1,000 acres. Near the greenhouses is a circular crop of long-leaf pines seedlings under a pivot irrigation system equipped with micro sprinklers. Long-leaf pines are an indigenous tree in the Southeast. Growers are working to increase the number of this slower growing hearty hardwood tree in this region. USDA Photo by Lance Cheung.
