My name is Leiandra. I operate, along with my father, a small family farm in south east Georgia called Dollison Farms. We are about 170 acres of cultivated land and the remainder is pasture land with two 10 stall farrowing houses fully equipped with water. About a year ago my father and I were discussing the farm and the crops he'd planted that year but, something was different about his conversation. He was excited to tell me he'd just acquired 3 sows and 1 boar. After our long conversation about him introducing a livestock division; I went to sleep thinking....He just might have something. Three months later I quit my job of 7 years at a reputable bankruptcy law firm in the metro area where I was a paralegal/supervisor and moved my family to south east Georgia to farm. Almost a year later we have 30 sows and 4 boars. My dad and I have been working our fingers to the bone to realize our dream put in motion by his father, my grandfather. I'm excited about our growth and expansion and I look forward to sharing it with all of you. We are always looking to educate ourselves to ensure the health and safety of our animals to ultimately ensure quality pork to our neighbors. I love my job! After working to help another realize their dreams for over 15 years and now taking my own financial life in my hands has been the hardest most rewarding thing I've ever done. I see both sides of the coin so clear and feel like my work experience in hospitality, athletics, and law prepared me to travel the road of business ownership strategically, carefully, and most of all boldly. But, what I love about working in Agriculture the most is that you literally reap what you sow. You get what you put in. So, I'm planting a seed.
