Obion County Farmer, Mike Hampton

Q: What type of farm do you have?
A: We currently have 4,500 acres where we raise corn, soybeans and wheat. We have two full-time employees, so four with my son-in-law and me who are full time on the farm, and during harvest, we hire additional help. Everybody on our farm has a passion for it and that helps – loving what you do makes it easier to work long days.

Q: What are your biggest challenges and blessings on the farm?
A: I’ll do blessings first because that’s easy – family. Having family help, and knowing I have a grandson who wants to farm after college…that is such a blessing. I think we have enough on the farm that the next two generations can take it and grow.
