Coker Farms National Historic Landmark

Coker Experimental Farms and its parent company, Coker's Pedigreed Seed Company, founded in the early 1900s by David R. Coker, developed new, improved varieties of crop seeds. They also developed the first cotton breeding program in the US. Exhibits depicting the company's impact on Southern agriculture are housed in a replica of the site's original dairy barn. Self-guided interpretive exhibits are open from 9am - 6pm daily. Coker Farms is a National Historic Landmark and achieved this designation as the first agricultural company to use scientific plant breeding methods and protocols to develop improved varieties of crop seeds for the American farmer.
