Old School to New: family farm evolves

Things have changed a lot in 150 years since the Davis family started farming in Jackson County, Florida. Instead of walking behind mule-pulled plows, they ride in air conditioned, self-driving, GPS-guided 295-horsepower tractors.

Jones Sheep Farm

Even on a small scale, farming takes balance. Especially with a garden and sheep. Learn how Johnnie Jones manages his 20-acre operation in Havana, Fla.

Wendt Farm & Nursery

Outside of Pace, Fla., the Wendt family raises vegetables, specialty crops and manages a high-tech operation starting transplants for wholesale. For them, modern technology and old fashioned hard work is a recipe for success.

Working the Family Farm

The Snider family grows crops on 700 acres, manages 2 feed stores, 8 chicken houses and 50-head of cattle and do most of the work themselves so they can realize their lifelong dream: owning their own farmland.

Clear Creek Farm

When Ray and Wanda Davis decided to pursue their retirement dream of starting a farm, Wanda had one condition: it had to be beautiful. It is that and more. On only one acre, they bring new meaning to sustainability.
