This week on The Land Show with Dave and Johnny:
- William Crawford, Director of the Outdoor Scholars Program at the University of Montevallo, joins us to talk about the recent success of their University bass fishing team and the program.
- Thomas Ellis, Alabama Farmer of the Year and owner of Priesters Pecans, shares about their family business and what it means to continue the family legacy of owning and running the farm and business.
- Randall Upchurch discusses what is happening on his family farm in Clay County, and their registered cattle herd in our Farmland Report.
- Dave and Jonathan answer a listener question about “Their Paying Job” with Southeastern Land Group.
- Dave: Well, Jonathan, in spite of us, it was another great land show, man. Glad to have Mr. William Crawford, who’s the director of the President’s outdoor scholarship program my alma mater, at the University of Montevallo, and talked about that. Things growing. And they won the National Championship in fishing. And it’s just amazing.
- Johhny: It really is amazing. And then we went down to Lowndes County, Alabama, spoke with Mr. Thomas Ellis, owner of Priests Pecans really neat third-generation owner. And now his three sons and their families are involved with it. So moving into the fourth generation right now, it’s just hard to beat a good pecan pie or my favorite, the Key lime Dusted pecans. Those are awesome.
- Dave: What a fantastic business. Everybody knows about it, and it’s just growing. It’s great to see it go to the next generation. We found the big man on his farm there in Londville, Alabama. Mr. Randall Upchurch. We talked about poultry south. We talked about cattle farming and a lot of small processors popping up around the state and commodity markets. Kind of went around the farming world. And Randall always brings great information. And he’s the 2020 Alabama Agribusiness. I’m sorry, the Realtor Linux to Agribusiness farmer the year. Anyway, he won a big deal.
- Johnny: And then we got a question from Tracy from Springwell. Just asking. Dave always mentions our paying job with Southeastern Land Group, and we just kind of described what that is, how we are farming land brokers and do a lot of different things. But we help people buy and sell land around the state of Alabama. We’ve been doing that.
- Dave: When did you start out of land 2002. So it’s almost 20 years now. So it’s really been an amazing run. And folks, we appreciate getting your questions, like Tracy’s firstname.lastname@example.org. Call us at 866 751Land, we’d love to talk to you. We appreciate you watching this video review and encourage you to listen to the entire land show with David Johnny.
