We leased the land to a local cattleman for long-horn cattle and to a local farmer to raise peanuts. The cattle have been on the south side and now will also be in the wooded area on the north side. That will help keep down the undergrowth in the area. It will also be good having a responsible person like Ted Strange watch the place while checking on the herd.
The row-crop land on the north side was leased to Driscoll Cotton Farms to raise peanuts. That use will prevent spread of the invasive tree species and other plants that soon take over a field that is not maintained.
