Brad Thompson’s newfound way to farm comes with a great view

Brad Thompson lands the helicopter on top of the upper deck of the modified trailer. Cotton plants whirled and dirt swirled. On the trailer, farmhand/ground crewman Dusty Smith casually refills the copter’s spray tank and chats with Thompson.

Three minutes later, Thompson lifts off and gets back to defoliating his cotton.

Thompson's not ashamed to say that this new way of farming for him is more than a little fun. Jump in and see firsthand what it's like.
