Family Spotlight: Meet The Haynie Family Of America’s Farmers Story #AmericasFarmers

This post was created in partnership with America’s Farmers. All opinions are my own.

Coming from a family of farming, I know how challenging it can be to balance day-to-day family activities with the workload that comes with managing a farm.  I also know the honor and pride of being part of something from previous generations; carrying it on to the next generation, and the importance of the entire family unit working together as a team.

Family Motto

We, the American farmers, feed the world. We contribute to the global food supply. Food, fiber, textile, so many things. Our products, here in this rural county get shipped all over the world. So many other countries benefit from the corn, wheat and soybeans that we raise.” – PJ HAYNIE III

The Haynie farm dates back to 1867 when PJ Haynie’s great-great-grandfather, Rev. Robert Haynie, purchased 60 acres of land. PJ Haynie can’t help but feel a sense of awe when he’s in the tractor, working the same land his great grandfather worked with just a mule and plow.

The Haynie farm is a family farm, through and through, and it’s a farm that has continued to grow, with each generation adding onto it. Today, the farm, a couple thousand acres large, grows corn, soybeans, wheat and barley, and the Haynies manage the farm as a family. For the Haynies, farming isn’t a job, it’s a way of life. I am very proud to share their America’s Farmers story here with you.
