Straw Hat Farms, Raleigh, NC

Project Snapshot:
Clifford Sutton is modifying his current planter into a precision planter. This new system will allow him to plant more efficiently and plant the correct rate based on soil type and production zones. This equipment will allow the small farm to quickly plant seeds and capitalize on optimal planting windows to get crop in the ground.

Bio: Straw Hat Farms is a fourth-generation row crop farm. Family-owned and operated we focus on sustainable production practices that reduce inputs and maximize profits. With the 5th generation in the education transfer stage, we are focused on diversifying crop selection to ensure that the next generation may have a well-balanced company.
