Glen and Jason Newcomer are the sixth-generation owners and operators of Newcomer Farms. Having been established during the time of the Civil War, Newcomer Farms is one of the oldest farms in America. Glen has extensive experience in farm management, agronomy support, and agricultural risk management. Jason returned to the farm after college to help the family operate and innovate the farm to match current trends.
Glen and Jason join me to share what it’s like to manage a farm that’s survived many troubling times. They discuss the difference between how the farm was managed decades ago and how it is managed today. Jason explains the reason why he returned to farming and Glen describes some of the tasks Jason helped relieve him from. They also share how they select their board of advisors and their perspective on farm operations.
“We always have to find ways to become more efficient and more profitable.” - Glen Newcomer
