Dr. Jeff Davis and wife Trinity and their two daughters, Sadie and Clara were honored on July 5th as the 2020 Scotland County State Fair Farm Family.
The Davis’s were recognized as part of the opening ceremonies for the 2020 Scotland County Junior Fair. The 4-H junior royalty were also crowned and 2020 Scotland County Fair Queen Anna Triplett was introduced as part of the event held at the Church of Christ in Memphis.
Raised on multi-generational crop and livestock farms in Putnam and Clark Counties, Dr. Jeff and Trinity Davis have lived in rural Scotland County for 17 years. Jeff is a graduate of Graceland College and Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine, and Trinity received degrees from the University of Missouri and Truman State University. Except for their years of education and Jeff s medical training, Jeff and Trinity have called the farthest corner of northeast Missouri home. They will celebrate their 25th year of marriage this year.
Since 2003, while Jeff has practiced family medicine at Scotland County Hospital in Memphis, he and Trinity raised their two daughters and gradually established a large acreage leased for cattle in Putnam County and their home and small farm located a short distance north of Memphis. The Davis’s chose the name Sunny Summit Farms for their farming businesses due to both farms’ northern Missouri hill-top views. At their home in Scotland County, 20 acres of pasture ground provides a home to sheep, cattle, chickens, and ducks. A refurbished pig feeding floor provides farm-raised pork for the family, and a few llamas, enjoyed as mild-mannered members of the farm, provide herd and flock protection. Besides breeding and raising their own sheep for the show season, a primary focus of the Davis’s farm is for food production. The Davis’s regularly consume their own lamb, pork, beef, and eggs and maintain a small business of custom-raised meat and eggs.
Jeff and Trinity and their daughters, Sadie (21) and Clara (17), have been active in 4-H and FFA for many years. Jeff has served as sheep project leader and sheep superintendent for the Scotland County Fair, and Sadie and Clara have been active leaders in their 4-H and FFA groups. In addition to his dedication to serving the community, Jeff has established a busy medical practice, served as president of the Missouri Association of Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons (MAOPS), and is Chief Medical Officer of Scotland County Hospital. In 2020, he was awarded Physician of the Year by his colleagues in MAOPS. While running the household and supporting her daughters’ many activities, Trinity works in area health care facilities as a speech therapist, coaches the local swim team, and has served on the school board and in many community volunteer acfivities. Sadie, a senior in Journalism at the University of Missouri, is the current president of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority. She also serves as a Journalism Ambassador and was awarded 1st and 2nd runner-up at the Missouri State Fair Queen competition in 2018 and 2019. Clara, a senior at Scotland County R-1, leads the varsity cheerleading squad, the band as drum major, and holds offices in multiple school organizations and the Azen Jolly Timers 4-H Club
