On this episode, we meet a corn, cotton, rice, and soybean farmer from Northeast Louisiana. We discuss how he got started farming, how much his wife helps him around the farm, and how proud he is to do the job that he does as a farmer. We also talk about our Ag Leadership class and the trip we made to California to learn about agriculture outside of Louisiana.

Episode 3 - Phillip & Carey Tomlinson

On this episode, we catch up with a couple from Lake Providence, Louisiana who not only stays busy farming soybeans and corn but also with their three children. Even with the farm this family takes pride in keeping their children involved in the daily operation. Homeschooling their children is one thing that they believe helps to keep their family together. I hope you enjoy meeting this couple, Phillip and Carey Tomlinson, on Louisiana Farm Life.

Robert and Rachel live in Boyce, Louisiana. That’s where they farm soybeans, hay, and raise their cattle. They’ve had a tough spring planting their soybeans on their farm that’s flooded by Red River backwater. We discuss that struggle, but also how they’re finding new markets for their cattle and their plans to grow that part of their business.
