Strickland Farming Partnership is a progressive eighth generation diversified crop and livestock family farm operation. The Strickland family, which includes Garrett, his son Reggie, and grandson Will, still farm much of the land their ancestors farmed as far back as 1861.
Nearly 30 years ago, Garrett wanted to manage his father’s two tobacco warehouses and continue farming but couldn’t do both on his own. Fortunately, Reggie was just finishing at North Carolina’s State University Ag Institute. The timing was perfect and the two started farming with 150 acres.
Today, the Strickland row crop operation spans over Sampson, Wayne and Duplin counties. We grow a variety of crops including corn, soybeans, wheat, tobacco, pickle cucumbers, peppers, squash and sweet potatoes. In 1990 we added a hog operation to our business, which continues today.
