Kansas Road was named by the Mennonite settlers after their home state. The upper region of Escambia County has been influenced by their farming practices with beautiful, well kept fields.
Round bales, which are typically weigh 700â€“900 lbs, are more moisture-resistant, and pack the hay more densely (especially at the center). Round bales are quickly fed with the use of mechanized equipment.
There are cotton fields stretching for several miles on both sides of Kansas Road.
Mennonite farmers are making agriculture a viable way of life in Escambia County.
