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 view the gin in operation along with the video to explain the process.
George "Buddy" Tanner designed and built the modern cotton gin and was selected the most outstanding ginner in the U. S. by the National Ginner's Association. Today, his step-son Don Branton manages the gin and has been selected to partner with USDA as their test site across the nation. His brother John leases the plantation and owns Frogmore Farms partnership.
