RALEIGH COUNTY, WV (WOAY)- It has been the wettest fall on record.
Not only have we seen flooding from all the rainfall, but it has also affected the agriculture in southern West Virginia. Agriculture is in the top 3 economic revenue in the state of West Virginia. The rainfall has also affected the farming community.
We talked with Rick Snuffer, a farmer at the Snuffer and Sons Farm in Raleigh County to see how the rain has affected his business.
“And then we turned in late July August September October to some of the wettest months in maybe in history. And it’s really made it impossible to harvest our crops and our hay. Also even though pasture fields look like they’re growing well, they’re so wet that the moisture is in everything. The cows haven’t gained as well” said Rick Snuffer.
Snuffer and Sons Farm will have to reseed majority of their fields due to the rain.
