Wimberly Farms, Inc. is a
family farm operation in Somerset County, Maryland. We are
William and Kevin Anderson, a father-son team. We grow corn, soybeans,
wheat, and barley. Additionally, we operate a seed conditioning facility
where we clean, treat, and bag soybean, wheat, and barley seeds. We are a
licensed dealer for USG (UniSouth Genetics) wheat and soybean seed, and we also
sell some public barley varieties. In addition to certified seed, we sell
cover crop wheat and barley seed. A by-product of our barley crop is the
straw that we have available for sale. We take great pride in our land
stewardship and farm with best management practices.
Kevin is the 3rd generation to work in the seed business on this farm, and he has been farming with his father and late grandfather all his life.
Kevin’s wife, Liz, manages the office, payroll, and regulatory paperwork. They have two grown daughters who have helped on the farm. Kevin was awarded the National Young Farmer Achievement Award in 2002 by the American Farm Bureau Federation after winning the Achievement Award at the Maryland state level. Then, in 2007, Kevin was named a National Outstanding Young Farmer by the Outstanding Farmers of America. He currently serves on the Maryland Grain Producers Board and the Maryland Crop Improvement Association, as well as being Chairman of the Board of UniSouth Genetics, Inc. He and William have served on various statewide boards and in local civic clubs and organizations and received many regional and statewide awards for their contributions to the seed industry and agriculture.
