Jason has been working with harvest for eleven years, six of those years were with Scott and Linda Payne of S & L Farms, Inc. who are retiring after 39 years of harvest. They have allowed Jason to continue in their footsteps, providing the same quality service and respectable reputation to their longstanding client base. Jason and Stephanie were married in March of 2007. Jason was born and raised in the great state of Georgia on his families beef cattle farm. The farm also had two layer houses, raising 102,000 chickens. Jason obtained his degree in accounting while attending college during the winter months in Georgia and working for S & L Farms during the summer months. He also worked full time with a CPA firm in Atlanta while at college. Stephanie, born and raised in Michigan, grew up on the family farm, raising corn, soybeans, sugerbeets, and pickels. Jason and Stephanie first meet while Stephanie was on harvest in 2003, assisting Linda with meals and other duties. Jason and Stephanie both love the Lord and want to honor Him through harvest.
