Scott Railey grew up in Orlando, Florida. He attended college at Marion Military Institute in Alabama where he played football and ran track. He graduated from Jacksonville State in Alabama with a BS degree in Biology.
Scott spent 30 years with Helena Chemical, one of the nation’s largest agricultural chemical and fertilizer companies. During his tenure there he was in sales and management. Scott was also a certified crop advisor (CCA.) He was inducted into Helena’s Hall of Fame and retired in 2010. Following retirement, however, he worked five years with Tecomate Seed, a wildlife food plot company where he was the National Sales Manager until he stepped down in 2015 to preach and farm full time.
Why Railey Farm & Field? It is our purpose to teach our fellow man... our fellow Americans to feed themselves; to raise a safe and historically proven food source that our forefathers planted... and to teach our fellow man to become self-sufficient through sustainable agriculture... planting an uncontaminated, heirloom, non-GMO food source.
In the 1800’s, 90% of Americans farmed, raising their own food supply. During the early 1900’s that figure dropped to 75 percent. Today... sadly... 2 percent of Americans feed 98 percent of a nation. Now listen... that same 2 percent feeds 14 percent of the world! I can tell you right now that statistic should cause concern to the American family! This is a dangerous and scary statistic. Furthermore, non-GMO, open pollinated seed is rarely, if ever, planted. This should be a wake-up call to all Americans. Now, with saying that, God bless the American farmer! My friends, the American farmer is the salt of the earth. They work tirelessly to feed the people.
I have been blessed to be the National Sales Manager for Tecomate Wildlife Systems until 2015. It was a great adventure to blend modern agriculture with the wild life industry. You see, food plots for deer and their booming populations are extremely important to maintain a healthy nutritional level in deer herds. Now... this is especially true where fields of agriculture are not present. Food plots not only provide nutrition but also much needed cover from predators for all wildlife. Railey Farm & Field is a new, unique and one-of-kind company! You see... we approach the food plot industry in a completely new light. It only makes sense to me to provide a food plot that both Man and Wildlife can use.
