The Farmers: Phillip J Haynie II and wife Gail and son Phillip Haynie III – 5th generation, married to Lisa
Location: Reedville, VA
Farm: Soybean, Corn, Wheat, and Barley
The Haynie farm dates back to 1867 when PJ Haynie's great-great-grandfather, Rev. Robert Haynie, purchased 60 acres of land.
PJ Haynie can't help but feel a sense of awe when he's in the tractor, working the same land his great grandfather worked with just a mule and plow.
The Haynie farm is a family farm, through and through, and it's a farm that has continued to grow, with each generation adding onto it. Today, the farm, a couple thousand acres large, grows corn, soybeans, wheat and barley, and the Haynies manage the farm as a family. For the Haynies, farming isn't a job, it's a way of life.
