2019

Emmett Wayne Beard, Sr. has been selected as the 2019 Cumberland County Agricultural

Tagged Interests: agriculture

Hall of Fame inductee.

Wayne spent his entire life on his family s farm in the Eastover community. He began

Tagged Interests: agriculture

farming as a young boy, helping his father with the family s cattle and row crop operation

Tagged Interests: agriculture

which included tobacco, corn, soybeans, and small grains. He was a member of FFA and

Tagged Interests: tobacco

showed livestock in his 4-H Club. He was awarded the NC State Farmers Degree in 1964.

Tagged Interests: agriculture and livestock

At the age of eighteen, Wayne began running the family farm after his father s untimely

Tagged Interests: agriculture

death.

Wayne graduated from Central High School and Methodist University. While continuing

Tagged Interests: university and education

the demands of operating a farm, Wayne married the love of his life Wanda and they had

Tagged Interests: agriculture

two devoted children, Wayne Jr. and Jenae. Together the Beard family would operate and

run the 100 acre cattle farm which instilled a close family bond and a love for agriculture.

Tagged Interests: agriculture and bond

In addition to farming, Wayne taught vocational courses, including agriculture education,

Tagged Interests: agriculture, vocational education, and education

for 30 years in the Cumberland County School system. When he wasn t in the classroom,

Tagged Interests: education

he could often be found teaching on his farm. Whether instructing his granddaughter and

Tagged Interests: agriculture

nephews or giving tours on his farm to military personnel and students, his passion for

Tagged Interests: agriculture, personnel, military, and students

teaching others and helping them gain a better understanding of agriculture was always

Tagged Interests: agriculture

paramount.

After his retirement from the classroom, Wayne increased his cattle herd and grew hay to

Tagged Interests: retirement and seniors

provide for the City of Fayetteville Mounted Police Patrol. He was very active in the

Tagged Interests: public safety

community serving on the Cumberland County Civic Center Commission as the

Tagged Interests: boards and commissions

agricultural representative, the Cumberland County Livestock Association, and the

Tagged Interests: agriculture and livestock

Cumberland County Farm Advisory Board.

Tagged Interests: agriculture

He had a passion for being outdoors whether farming or hunting, loved spending time in

Tagged Interests: agriculture and hunting

his church and with his family, especially his granddaughter Reagan

Tagged Interests: church

Unfortunately, Wayne passed away in 2017 leaving his family to continue his legacy of

faith, family and farming. Today his son and great nephew are using the lessons he taught

Tagged Interests: agriculture

them to continue farming and their efforts would undoubtedly make him proud.

Tagged Interests: agriculture

Emmett Wayne Beard. Sr., the 2019 Cumberland County Agricultural Hall of Fame

Tagged Interests: agriculture

inductee, a true champion of agriculture.

Tagged Interests: agriculture

Farming has been a part of Adam s family for several generations and he is proud

Tagged Interests: agriculture

to continue the tradition. Adam developed a strong interest in farming at an early

Tagged Interests: agriculture

age while spending time on his grandparent s farm in the Wade community with

Tagged Interests: agriculture

his grandmother Collier. His interest in farming was ignited by observing farmers

Tagged Interests: agriculture

tending fields next to his grandmother s house. As a very young child, one of his

first crops was a few hills of tobacco given to him by a tobacco farmer renting the

Tagged Interests: agriculture and tobacco

Collier farm. Those tobacco plants were planted in his grandmother s front yard

Tagged Interests: agriculture, plant, and tobacco

much to the disbelief of other family members. He even suffered a loss with his

crop, as many farmers do, when his tobacco crop was shredded by a hailstorm.

Tagged Interests: agriculture and tobacco

Around the age of 14, he began growing squash, collards, and deer corn to earn

extra money. The late Harvey Johnson, a local farmer, would take Adam s

Tagged Interests: agriculture

produce to sell at the Farmer s Market in Raleigh. Later, he began working for

Tagged Interests: market and agriculture

Bunce Brothers Farms in Stedman, gaining experience and firsthand knowledge

Tagged Interests: agriculture

of farming with the Bunce operation. He was encouraged along the way by long

Tagged Interests: agriculture

time area farmers, Billy Culbreth, Maxton Bunce, and his uncle, Wingate Collier.

Tagged Interests: agriculture

Reuben Cashwell has also been an influential source of expertise, providing Adam

with farming advice when needed. Adam has never been one to shy away from

Tagged Interests: agriculture

hard work and has spent many long days working the fields to produce corn,

soybeans, watermelons, and wheat. Today he is growing crops on the land once

farmed by his grandfather, Worth Collier, and great-grandfather, Harvey Hubbard.

Tagged Interests: agriculture

He also expands his operation by farming land that he rents in the area.

Tagged Interests: agriculture

Adam is a lieutenant with the Fayetteville Fire Department, working with the city

Tagged Interests: fire departments and districts

since 2008. He was also a volunteer fireman with the Bethany Fire Department

Tagged Interests: fire departments and districts and volunteer

and the Stedman Fire Department prior to joining the Fayetteville Fire

Tagged Interests: fire departments and districts

Department.

An active member of Concord Baptist Church, Adam is married to Felisha Cashwell

Tagged Interests: church

Horne, daughter of Reuben and Faye Cashwell, and has three children, a daughter

Allie and two sons, Cadyn and Mason. He is the son of Johnny and Ann Horne and

has one brother, Stephen.
