Clark County farm named Arkansas Farm Family of the Year



Little Rock, Arkansas – During a luncheon in Little Rock on Friday, Huneycutt Farms in Arkadelphia was chosen the Arkansas Farm Family of the Year for 2022.

Ted and Steve Huneycutt have been farming for 35 years, according to a news release.

Ted Huneycutt stated, “Our family has worked incredibly hard to develop a business that is helpful, not only to our families but to agricultural families around our region. The recognition of our family’s dedication to this business among so many other deserving families is a wonderful honor.

Sara, Trey, Luke, and Greyson are the four adult children of Ted and Cindy.

Josh, Jessica, Ashley, and Logan are the four adult children that Steve and his wife Leanne have.

On 4,000 acres, the family cultivates cotton, corn, wheat, soybeans, hay, and cattle.

Along with running the farm, they also run Benchmark Ag, a risk management organization that offers crop insurance, commodities futures, and suggestions for cash sales to producers.

The Barn at Richwoods is also owned by the family. Additionally, they are building their own meat processing facility, the Ouachita Valley Meat Company, which will provide producers interested in selling their own products with products and processing skills.
