Mr. Lyvance Lowry - The Apple Never Falls Too Far From Tree

Mr. Lowry Lumberton FarmerThe Lowry family is a known leader in Robeson County, the Native American community, and they are respected among their peers for their more than 50 years of leadership in farming. The Lowry farm is a 600 acre generational farm that took a management shift in 1963 when Lycurous Lowry took the helm. Under his leadership, the farm expanded and has become a "center of excellence" for the farming community, providing a source to learn about progressive agricultural management practices.

The farm is now entering into a new era of excellence as Lyvance Lowry, Lycurous’ son, takes the helm.

During his leadership, Lyvance has added 20 poultry houses, expanded conservation efforts to include forced air composter, and sustained natural resource conservation practices, such as a no-till conservation system. He has also expanded the operational structure to include raising and

training race horses. Like his father, Lyvance is a leader in the industry, being named poultry "Producer of the Year" three times.

When asked why farm and be a leader, Lyvance states, "I just love doing it, I don’t know anything else but farming and taking this farm even further."
