Jesse Vernon Oliver, Sr., the grandfather, started farming in the 1930's as J. V. Oliver and Sons. Much like today's row crop operation of peanuts, corn, soybeans, and wheat, the elder Oliver's - Jesse, Vernon and Norman - had hogs, cattle and watermelons. Taking over the operation from their fathers, Jimmy and J. V. still produce the row crops and have added cotton to their acreage. In 2006, we decided it was time to diversify and started dabbling with produce. Growing many of the vegetables that area homeowners have in their own gardens, Jimmy and Pamela quickly learned the niche lied in sweet corn, butterbeans and strawberries.

Today, along with the fourth generation, we enjoy meeting new friends who are anxious to eat local.
