Brooks Mixon
Grounds Maintenance Manager
Sun Raised Farms


Brooks Mixon grew in Charlotte and graduated from West Charlotte High School before attending NC State University.  For 20 years, Brooks worked for his family’s antique business in the US and Europe before starting at Sun Raised Farms that put the farming into Solar Farms.  At Sun Raised Farms, Brooks contracts with Solar Farm owners to manage the vegetation that grows on the sites. He identifies, trains and manages local farmers who use livestock to graze under and around the solar panels.  When a local farmer is unavailable, or if solar farm owners do not want to have agriculture on site, Sun Raised Farms provides traditional grounds maintenance services to ensure the solar arrays are not shaded.
