Ashland City's Davis Named 'Farmer of the Year'

The Cheatham County Soil Conservation District recently recognized Will Davis of Ashland City as their 2017 Conservation "Farmer of the Year."

Will is a young beginning farmer who was not raised on a farm like most other farmers his age. He says “he likes to tell people he married into it.”

His wife, Casey, has a deep family background of farming spanning back generations. Will began working with the Soil Conservation District in 2017 and has installed since three water facilities; 2,277 sq. feet of heavy use area; 750ft of livestock pipeline, 3.050 ft of exclusion fence around creeks and gullies, and 1650 feet of cross fence which is allowing him to utilize a rotational grazing strategy that has been a great improvement on forage quality.

Davis’ efforts helps keep the natural watershed clean and also helps with erosion problems.

Will and Casey have three children: Reese, Payton and Lane.
