FARM HISTORY

Braddy Farms was organized and created in 1966 by Gary Braddy, Kelly Braddy, and Pete Braddy. Kelly and Pete are brothers. They are Gary's double first cousins. Their farming operation began as a partnership. In 1966 their farming operation was very small. They started off with only a few acres of tobacco, corn, peanuts, and wheat. Along with the crops, they also had a small livestock operation which consisted of only cattle and swine. Also, Braddy Farms started selling fertilizer and nitrogen to other farms and individuals.

Since 1966, Braddy Farms expanded their farming operation. Braddy Farms began growing Vidalia Sweet Onions in the late 1980's. In the early 1990's they started a trucking business. As a result of the tremendous amount of growth Braddy Farms has experienced, Gary, Kelly and Pete Braddy decided to incorporate Braddy Farms. Braddy Farms was incorporated in 1998.
