September Extension Spotlight
Did you know that Charlton County is home to many agricultural businesses and farms, consisting of over 13,000 acres? Each month the Charlton County Extension office would like to introduce some of agricultural businesses and farms. This month our September Extension Spotlight features, Andrew Gowen, better known as Andy, started farming in 1965 on his family’s farm located on Spanish Creek Road. Andy and his wife, Bridget, sons, Drew, Bo, Will, Jack, Jake and Jesse, continue that same family tradition today. Although there are many differences in farming his 200 plus acres today as he and his father did years ago, many things remain the same.
