Clay Holifield


My road in life has been direct.
Throughout high school and college, I gained work experience in retail, food service, ranching, and construction.
I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do in college—I was two years in and still undecided when I took an accounting class, found that I really enjoyed it, and decided to pursue that.
I started working at Cooper Farms in 2012 while I was still in school and sold produce at the roadside store.
Two years later, I was about to graduate college with my accounting degree and was looking to move on.
At that same time, Cooper Farms was looking for an accountant and store manager.
I loved working for Cooper Farms so I took the position and have been here ever since!

Day to Day

I show up to the store around 7 a.m., grab some coffee, and make sure everyone else shows up on time and ready to work. Then I start tackling whatever needs to get done, whether that's catching up on book work, stocking the store, going around the farm, etc.
