Meet Charlie Whiten of Whiten Farms in Oconee County, South Carolina. With a history of farming on both his mother’s and father’s sides going back generations, farming is certainly in his blood.

He grows soybeans, corn, milo and wheat with his wife, daughter, and two sons and daughters-in-laws. They also have four broiler houses where they raise chickens.

For Charlie and his family, it’s all about sticking with what works and sharing a passion for what they do.

Charlie knows that they have the South Carolina Soybean Board to thank for the innovations they have today, like a more drought-resistant soybean, that his father and grandfather didn’t have.

Find out Charlie’s secrets to success and learn more about the role organizations like the South Carolina Soybean Board play for farms like his.
