Windham Farms is named for the owner's grandfather, Johnnie Windham, born November 2, 1921 in the thriving county of Grenada, Mississippi. In December of 1936, he married the love of his life, Miss Ruby Caffey and together they raised their two children, Betty and Joanne.
Johnnie began farming at a young age and quickly became one of the top farmers in Mississippi, winning the state's Farmer of the Year and other awards at a time when farming huge acreage was rare due to the lack of high-tech automation and when farming was something many, many people did.
Johnnie was intelligent and he was an innovator. During the Great Depression, steel was hard to come by and Johnnie needed a planter so he designed and fabricated one from 50 gallon drums. This is the kind of creative innovation that we bring to Windham Farms INC.
Johnnie wasn't just an exceptional farmer, he was a good businessman and was well-connected with industry professionals, locals, and active in his church . Click below for more information and a gallery of photos including one of Johnnie with J. Edgar Hoover!
