William Paul Brown and his wife Mini pursued their passion for the cattle industry by opening Brown’s Packing Plant in 1945. Located in Gaffney, South Caroline it grew to be a thriving business and meat market. In 1962, it expanded its capacity by purchasing 250 of land and rebranding to what it is known as today, Famoda Farm.

The passion that was present in William and Mini was passed down to their daughters, as they both insisted to have their own calves. In 1955, the girls came across the American Angus Association and began showing their cattle. Both achieved great success and proved that there was room for women in the fitting business. 1962 was a great year for the family, as they grew, they also got to celebrate Doris being named American Angus Queen and Shirley serving as the Shorthorn Princess.  

Famoda Farm carries the first two letters of Father, Mother, and Daughter as each played a key role in the business. Things have changed as time has evolved but the core values around faith, family, and farm remain strong as ever. Now, the girls, along with the newest generation, continue to drive what their parents started as they focus on family and breeding top Angus Cattle.
