James Wedel Farms


About


Our Farm is located near Muleshoe in the southern panhandle of Texas near the New Mexico state line, altitude of about 4000 feet and annual rainfall of about 16 inches.

Jimmy began farming in 1979 with 160 acres, we gradually increased that amount to try to stay efficient enough to stay in business. By 1993 we were farming approximately 1500 acres, and at that time we started organic farming practices on 250 of those acres.

Today, we farm about 2500 acres, mostly irrigated. The organic crops we have grown are: Blue, White, and Yellow Corn, Valencia Peanuts, Soybeans, Wheat, Black Beans, Pinto Beans, Black-eye Peas, and Cotton. This year, we will only have about 100 acres of conventional production—-all other acres are in TDA/USDA Certified organic production.
