MODERN GINNING AND FARMING
Group and Individual
Student $5.00 Adult $10.00
Journey forward to the present as you tour an 1800-acre modern cotton plantation with computerized 900 bales-per-day cotton gin. Spring or fall, rain or shine, visitors experience ginning first hand via video. Mid-September through the end of October, visitors can also view the gin in operation along with the video to explain the process.
George "Buddy" Tanner was selected the most outstanding ginner in the U. S. by the National Ginner's Association and currently serves as a delegate to the National Cotton Council. He personally relates unusual products, cotton techniques, and world facts to group tours, and he is almost always available to answer questions for individuals as well. The Tanners offer not only a comprehensive historical tour, but also pride themselves on the agricultural, botanical, and industrial aspects of the tour.
