Take a look at our Spotlight Grower for March, Jesse Morris!
As far back as he can remember all he has ever wanted to do is farm. Growing up, he spent all his time after school and during the summer working on his granddad and uncle Marty’s farm. Once he finished high school he continued working on the family farm helping with the row crops and working in tobacco.
His granddad passed away in November of 2013 and an opportunity arose for him to buy one of his 230 acre farms in Buchanan, TN.
He knew he wanted to raise pigs for Tosh and that farm would be perfect. He received his first litter in September of 2017; he now has six wean-to-finish hog barns. He plans to continue expanding his hog operation in the future.
He said, “Growing pigs for Tosh has been a great opportunity and I am doing what I enjoy.”
Jesse also has a gravel pit on his farm and owns two dump trucks that he hauls and sells gravel out of.
Hard workers like Jesse give proof that Tosh Farms is dedicated to the business and everyone involved. We are all working for the same goal and Jesse is a big part of the operation. Thank you Jesse!!
