Patrick Brown’s Legacy Farm Showcases Black History & Regenerative Hemp Growing Practices

By Elizabeth Lunt

Patrick Brown, 40, a fourth-generation Black farmer in Henderson, N.C., considers himself a steward of family land. His great-grandfather Byron Brown was born at Oakley Grove, a slave plantation also in Warren County, and lived there until, as a teenager, he learned the Civil War had ended. He moved across the county, where he worked for pay and became a sharecropper. In time he earned 200 acres of his own land, where he grew timber and raised livestock. By the time of his death in 1931, the farm was over 2,000 acres.

Over the generations, the Brown family held onto portions of the land and continued to improve it. Patrick Brown took over his father’s portion of 165 acres in 2015. Since 2016, hemp is among the crops grown on the farm.
