Co-op Matters

Responsible Ag

 

The city of Headland is located in the southwest corner of Henry County and it is the county’s largest town. It is bordered to the south by Dothan and Kinsey in Houston County, and to the west by Dale County. It is located just off U.S. Hwy 431. If you are heading to the beach, take the scenic way and drop by to say hello to the staff at Headland Peanut Warehouse. Manager Jay Jones (pictured) can also fill you in on the vast history of the area and everything about peanuts. Once known as Headland Milling Co., the Co-op has been involved in the community almost since the start of the town in the late 1800s. Located on Railroad St., this allows the farmers and town to have access to the entire southeast. With a perfect climate and soil for growing, the Wiregrass Area flourishes in the agriculture market. With help from people such as Jones, it will only continue to grow.
