Texas pumpkin farms struggle with inflation and drought

As fertilizer, seed and labor prices have all gone up drastically this year, some Texas farmers are worried. Tim Gee, co-owner of Amarillo-based Gee Family Farms: “My fertilizer prices basically tripled from last year, electricity well natural gas has gone up, probably doubled most all the inputs at least doubled.”

In the end, Gee Family Farms managed to only raise the price of its sweet corn by only a dollar. “This year we did have to up it $1 and it was hard for us to do, but everybody was real positive. Because of the fertilizer and everything else that it went up and so we finally after this year we had to do that,” said Michele Gee, co-owner of Gee Family Farms.
