The New Crop of Farmers

Record #:
With tobacco a declining crop, some farmers in Western North Carolina are becoming gourmet growers who are filling the void in high-end food markets. Soon heirloom tomatoes, caviar, and truffles will be as well-known in the area as black-eyed peas, barbecue and cornbread. Kay speaks with Randy Gardner (tomatoes), Lee Tuttle (truffles), and Joe Doll, Bill White, Lewis Pugh, and Ralph Reese (caviar).
