Dail Farms Visit, Roy Thagard and Jimmy & Deborah Dail

National Trip Day 8

County Extension Agent Roy Thagard introduced us to Daik Farms owners Jimmy and Deborah Dail.  Dail farms rotates tobacco and produce and also raise hogs for pork producer Murphy-Brown.  Tobacco starts out as seedlings in a hydroponic medium for 60-80 days.  One 7,500 sf shade house produces seedlings for 90 planted acres.  Roy explained that tobacco growers net approx. $2,000 per acre.

Lunch was at McCall’s BBQ and Seafood and we said Aloha and Mahalo to Roy.
