Berry Household Farms is Nurturing Knowledge for Future Generations — The Filth


M: Berry Household Farms goals to show that farming is each “cool” and important throughout generations. How does your loved ones’s legacy of sustaining generational farming and constructing wealth affect your mission to embody the importance and “coolness” of farming and ranching? 

Cedric: Our goal was to sort of let our technology and the generations coming behind us see that if you happen to do it in a wise manner, it’s not as a lot arduous work because it was once and it’s truly enjoyable.

when my dad and his siblings had been rising up…after they [worked the farm], it was sort of like chores…they had to do it, and all people wished to get away from it as a result of it was arduous work.

However Georgia which, for one, is an agricultural state, and that’s [the industry] the place numerous the cash is pumped into — with this, I suppose you could possibly say, newfound development or motion [to return to landstewardship], the cash is there, the assistance is there. So, if you happen to take a look at it from a distinct perspective, comparable to, “Okay, all people needs to be a enterprise proprietor or entrepreneur, and farming isn’t any completely different, I’m a enterprise proprietor filling a necessity and assembly a requirement,” you could possibly flip [farming] right into a enterprise and model it on the identical time. It’s sort of extra thrilling than pondering of it as only a chore.

I’m hoping that at some point our youngsters get somewhat extra concerned. My grandfather (Curtis Berry) began along with his father, after which, in fact, with my dad (Aubrey Berry) and all of his siblings rising up, they sort of needed to work issues. My grandfather obtained to the place he didn’t [have to] do as a lot anymore. He all the time did one thing, however he didn’t do as a lot, and my grandmother all the time mentioned she wished to see one thing completed [with keeping the farm going]. Then my uncle (Lamar) obtained again into [daily farm work] round 2008, after which my dad joined in with him a few years later, and we all the time helped. We noticed the chance, like, “Hey, that is what our household does,” so [my cousin] Tony and I obtained collectively and jumped in, too!
