Ask a Farmer

Ever had a pressing questions that you just HAD to know the answer to?

Well, we aren’t promising that Jared is the guy to call if you need to phone-a-friend on a game show…BUT if you need to phone-a-farmer, well then he’s just the guy to get up with!

Feel free to post questions in the comment box below. After you do that, we’ll answer them right here in a post–unless we don’t know what you’re talking about. (Like: “How many spots does a giraffe have?” or “Is the hokey-pokey REALLY what it’s all about?” ) We’ll just push those into the spam pile.

  1. Hey Jared & Jillian! I’d love to see you guys talk about some of the challenges & areas of excitement of being young in love and in agriculture! You really have so much to share on peanuts, cotton, etc. Glad to see you both willing to take a few minutes to talk ag and answer questions. Are we allowed to ask what farm connections will be part of the wedding? I’ve had friends who did all sorts of things! LOL. jp

    Thanks for the recommendation! We will probably have a post dedicated specifically to the challenges of young farmers soon, but for now…
    The first thing that comes to my mind right now is availability of land. It’s difficult to get your foot in the door with landowners who are leery of renting to new farmers who aren’t as established as others in the area.

    Of course you can ask about the wedding! We are having it at Landmark (which is Alabama’s agriculture museum) under the gazebo with the reception in Stokes Barn. So there will definitely be LOTS of farm and rural stuff! An Amish carriage, corn wagon, barn lanterns, mason jars, Oberweis milk bottles that I collected over the summer (sounds weird but it’ll work) wildflowers and HOPEFULLY an antique tractor! :)
    I’m open for suggestions if y’all have any!
