Casey Edwards


Madison County (7/10 acres)

Potatoes

Casey grew up in Madison county near Burnsville and has been farming on his current land his whole life. He currently farms with this help of his father, who also grew up farming in the area. They used to grow tobacco, and now grow a red pontiac potato variety along with other produce in their garden. Casey does not particularly have a favorite crop to grow because he likes so many, but he did mention his fondness of potatoes. On the other hand, beans are quite tricky and he does not like how time consuming it is to grow them.

When asked why he loves farming, Casey responded simply, “I love to watch things grow.” He does most work mechanically, and plans to expand to a new 70 acre spot in Tennessee. This is Casey’s first year growing with TRACTOR.
