P. Mikell Davis credits his grandparents with his farming career.

He operates Little Creek Farm in Sessums with his wife Mary Cheek Hall Davis, but he said his first calf was a gift from his grandfather that he received at 3 years old. His mother passed away when he was a toddler, he said, and his father raised his two older siblings while leaving him with his grandparents. Some would see this as an obstacle, but describing his grandfather as someone who worked “daylight-to-dark” at farming, Davis said he saw being raised by his grandparents differently.
