Owner and operator of Corrin F. Bowers & Sons Farm, Bowers began farming in a partnership in 1976. Today, his wife Sallie and children Corrin Bowers III and Louisa Beach all assist on the family farm operation. They farm peanuts, cotton and corn.
“It’s important for farmers to have a voice in the many issues facing agriculture today. I am to be that voice for South Carolina and all farmers,” said Bowers. “I want to keep farmers in mind and I look forward to helping build awareness and educate people about preventing peanut allergies through early introduction of peanut products in infants.”
Bowers graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of South Carolina. Additionally, he is a member of the South Carolina Peanut Board, Farm Bureau and the Lions Club. Bowers is also a deacon at Lawtonville Baptist Church.
