ABOUT McGehee and Sons Farm
William McGehee produces corn, peanuts, cattle and perennial peanut hay on over 1,000 acres in High Springs.
Through utilizing Best Management Practices (BMPs), William works diligently to conserve water and continue his sustainable practices for the future. He has implemented using soil moisture sensors, center pivot irrigation and GPS application which reduces water usage and monitors nutrient levels throughout. Additional BMPs include planting a 5-way cover crop mix along with rotational grazing, which improves soil health and protects water quality throughout his operation and surrounding waterways.
McGehee is heavily involved in the University of Florida’s sod-based rotation program which educates farmers sustainable practices and preserving our resources for the future.
Florida Farm Bureau Federation is proud to award a 2019 CARES designation and sign to McGehee and Sons Farm and family for their dedication in being outstanding environmental stewards.
