We farm in San Patricio

and Nueces counties in the Coastal Bend region of South Texas. We grow cotton, grain sorghum, and corn. We couldn’t escape the Texas stereotype, so we have a cow/calf cattle operation in San Patricio county too.

Environmental stewardship

is more than a buzzword around J&K Whatley Farms. We are diligent in our efforts to maintain healthy fields and productive soil. This land has been here long before it came under our care, and we are committed to preserving it for the generations to come.

Interested in seeing a contemporary, modern farm?
We would be happy to host a field trip to the field. Our planting season runs from February through March. We tend to growing crops until June, when we start combining grain. Our cotton harvest typically begins in July and runs through August.
