Wendell Williams

Wendell Williams farms in Two Egg, Florida, just 65 miles west of Tallahassee. The farm has been in operation since the late 1800s.  Wendell Williams — a third-generation farmer — continues this legacy as he farms cotton, corn, peas, hay, and peanuts along with raising cattle and other livestock. His farm’s grant funds will be used to purchase a barn (previous structures suffered damage during 2018’s Hurricane Michael) which will serve the dual purpose of storing farm equipment and providing designated space to host a mini farmers’ market for the community. Williams Farms’ Neighbor Helping Neighbor program will follow a unique model whereby local farmers both large and small will make food contributions to the farmer’s market (attached to the barn structure) and community members will have the opportunity to get items that are available. Visitors to the farmer’s market will be able to offer up items to trade or barter.
