Friday afternoons must be Jacob Gilmore's favorite time of the week.
It’s when he leaves his fulltime corporate job to spend days of uninterrupted enjoyment doing what he loves best: farming. “My dad bought his first cow when I was in the third grade, and by the time I graduated high school, I was in love with farm life,” Jacob says. Back then, the family had just moved to Molino, a small town north of Pensacola in Escambia County. Jacob quickly got involved in 4-H and FFA, showing his first steer in 1994, and has worked alongside his parents, expanding their farm and herd ever since. With an expansion in mind, they leased an additional 408-acre farm for several years before purchasing it in 2008. Today, Gizmo Angus Farm is a 100-cow/calf herd of registered Angus cattle pastured on nearly 450 acres. To learn more about the Gilmore's story visit here.
