Virginia Farmers Honored By Award

by Staff on September 30, 2014

Tom and Kim Nixon own Glenmary Farms in Rapidan VA.  This month they were honored as the ‘2014 Farmers Of The Year‘ by the Virginia Cooperative Extension and we want to add our own congratulations to them as well.

The Nixons are very enterprising and creative farmers.  Though they farm thousands of acres, some of that acreage is leased in order to make it affordable.  They practice diversification and raise crops such as corn (as a cash crop or for silage, depending upon the market conditions) as well as beef cattle and turkeys.   They’re not new at this business … Tom Nixon’s been a farmer for 30 years and he knows what he’s doing.  And their children are following them into careers in agriculture as well, which is a tribute to their passion and knowledge of Virginia farming.
