For 28 years, Jason Hewett has worked on and managed farms and plantations in Georgia and South Carolina.
After a successful career in the plantation management business - working for some of South Carolina's most discerning landowners - Jason decided to take a leap of faith and switch gears to help as many landowners as possible achieve their land ownership objectives. In 2023, Jason joined Jon Kohler & Associates. He has been a leader in the local plantation and conservation communities for over 20 years.
In Jason's spare time, he volunteers with several organizations to promote conservation, education and the outdoors lifestyle. From 2014 until 2021, he led the South Carolina Plantation Manager’s Association and in 2019 led the South Carolina Prescribed Fire Council. Jason has also served on advisory boards for Clemson’s JCK Waterfowl and Wetlands Conservation Center, the SC Bobwhite Initiative, SC Tall Timbers Steering Committee, and Horry Georgetown Technical College’s Wildlife and Forestry Program. He has volunteered for and hosted multiple National Deer Alliance events, lectured to multiple classes for the Clemson Wildlife Department, hosted the SC Handler’s Trial for nearly a decade, and helped form the Carolina Celebration Open Shooting Dog Classic, one of the largest shooting dog trials in the country.
Jason's work has been published in Wildlife Trends and the Longleaf Leader for his efforts on prescribed fire. Recently, Jason was recognized in the latest edition of Dr. Craig Harper’s Wildlife Food Plots and Early Successional Plants as a meaningful contributor and has had several stories printed about his work, including in Garden & Gun.
