Georgia Timberland, Farm Land and Real Estate
Barrow & Byrd Properties, Inc. was formed in 2003 as a product of B&B Properties. B&B Properties was a partnership formed in 1989 for the purpose of buying and selling farmland and timberland. It eventually evolved into commercial holdings.
Since its beginning, B&B has bought and sold in excess of 60,000 acres in the Middle Georgia area. We also have purchased and sold lands in various other states.
Homer W. Barrow owned and operated Barrow Propane Gas, Inc. from 1969-2000. During his ownership, he established a large customer base in Middle and West Georgia. He eventually acquired four more propane gas businesses and then sold them all to Pro Am Gas, a company under the management of Duquesne Light Company Management, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was also actively involved in the day to day operations of Barrow & Byrd Properties during this time. Mr. Barrow also owns approximately 5,000 acres in various sections of Georgia that were acquired for his personal use. He is currently focusing all of his attention to the day to day operations of Barrow & Byrd Properties, Inc.
