Neville began his career as a farm hand and has held jobs as an operations manager at both Four Corners Farms and Van Solkema Produce. He also ran Rawls Neville Farms in Brooklet, Georgia, southeast of Statesboro, Georgia.

In 2022, Neville expanded his industry interests with the new title of owner when he purchased Van Solkema’s Georgia facility and partnered in an onion and watermelon growing operation with Hilliard Farms.

No stranger to G&R, Neville has worked with G&R Farms since 2015 in a storage and packing relationship through his previous businesses.

“It’s always a blessing to work with committed industry professionals who understand our business and are equally passionate about quality and service,” Steven Shuman, G&R Farms’ general manager, said in a news release. “Rawl’s attention to detail and his knowledge of all facets of the supply chain from growing to operations, as well as the responsibility of the sales relationship make him a valuable addition to our team.”

G&R began in 1945 with a small southeast Georgia farm. It grows a variety of crops on more than 5,000 acres. In addition to sweet onions and pecans, the third-generation family farm also grows peanuts, field corn, soybeans, hay, wheat and rye and operates a cow-calf beef herd operation. G&R grows conventional and organic sweet onions.
